Site Design Grading Corridors can be a practical production adventure in Autodesk Civil 3D. You could say that there are too many approaches for how to get a Site Design Grading Corridor beasty to work in Civil 3D. Sadly, there Civil 3D workflows that work for some grading design scenarios that seem to fail completely in other apparently similar scenarios. What a hassle. Why bother?

Are Civil 3D Corridors employed to produce Site Design grading solutions worth the small extra efforts we need to make in our design control details? If we want more adaptive and flexible options available in our Autodesk Civil 3D site design projects, the answer is pretty obvious.

Design Beyond the Breaklines

We all know that the classic Feature…

We can employ Corridors to solve a lot of significant and common site design problems in Civil 3D. Albeit we do need some skill and practice. Corridor design methodology is more productive than the classic Feature Lines only approach. After all, Corridors can produce related and managed Feature Lines in bunches.

That nifty trick alone says we should consider and take Site Design with Corridors…

Back in the day Autodesk liked to talk up the Dynamic Model. Remember that? The fact that Civil 3D Features (or objects) communicate with one another so we do not have to worry so much about whether or not the stuff you see and print in Civil 3D is actually updated.

If a Civil 3D user changes a design Alignment and Profile, the entire roadway Corridor model and the resultant…

Autodesk says Multiple Dynamic Baselines (MDB) is a new software feature for Civil 3D 2018. Don’t you love that Autodesk acronym anachronism. Civil 3D’s new form of MDB is actually a synergistic capability that results from the combination of classic Corridor Baselines and Regions the other new features and tools…
