Why does the Site Parcel’s Feature Line collector have a single Style-based Priority property? The need for the property isn’t really apparent at first glance. It becomes more evident when we begin to understand the depth of the Site Parcel and the dual power of the built-in Site Parcel model.
In the last post, we discovered…Read more
The last Parcel post we met the AutoCAD Civil 3D Site Parcel’s planar nodal topology engine. This is a model somewhat like the surface model we know all too well. The familiar surface TIN eats point data (x,y,z locations) and it’s triangle edges are edited and forced by breakline data (x,y,z pairs).
The Parcel topology model plays by another set of…Read more
In the previous post we talked about how the related civil engineering disciplines “see” parcels and their data differently - so much for getting a nice brown-paper wrapper and a string on the parcel. Much like junk mail these differences of expectation will continue to show…Read more
It’s probably been too long since I really posted about AutoCAD Civil 3D Parcels. Looking back I don’t think I ever really posted on the Civil 3D Site Parcel collector and it’s mechanics in much detail here. I decided it was time to do a write up. This will take a number of posts. There is a lot going on the Parcels.

I chatted about the Survey Figure Editor in a few posts earlier last month. It’s probably time to talk about its kissin’ cousin – the COGO Editor. How are these tools related? Let’s see.
