The Design State. When we employ Civil 3D Corridors for any type of design the current Design State matters. What is that? A classic example of a current Corridor Design State - Do we want to bother to Daylight now?
When was the last time in a Civil 3D project you only had to employ a single Assembly? A single Assembly that works alone in…Read more
Inside the Autodesk Civil 3D Corridor Feature we get better horizontal, vertical, and cross section control, more forms of output, better design round trips, more design control options, and better project-based quality control. That significant list of production benefits makes the small extra work that is required to employ a Corridor, well worth the effort.
The Good News…Read more
Autodesk made some quiet and undocumented changes to the default Corridor properties in the latest Autodesk Civil 3D 2021.1 Update. The Civil 3D 2021.1 Update’s new separate Inside and Outside Corridor Bowtie Settings for both Tangent and Arcs corner intersection resolutions. These changes can and do affect the default corner resolution behavior in Corridor Baseline…Read more
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…Read more
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…Read more
