Many folks in Civil 3D Land initially don’t, won’t, or cannot see the benefits of Civil 3D Corridor tools in civil engineering site grading projects. History matters. A Site grading design is basically an annotated finished grade Surface, right? Habit matters. Why do I need all that silly, complicated Corridor stuff and hassle for? Data management…

Civil 3D Site Grading Corridor production work can require lots of potential details and nuance. This suggests that we also often get complex Design Control with important Parent Child relationships that we want to maintain and employ for our benefit within the Civil 3D project context.

Most Civil 3D uses come to understand the project-based…

Our decisions and choices about the mission critical Design Control in Site Grading Corridors are where the rubber hits the road in a production environment in Civil 3D. Like all things in Civil 3D Site Grading Design Corridors favor the iterative development of improved and managed design control.

There are lots of potential forms of Design…
