Inside the Corridor Feature¬†we Autodesk Civil 3D users get better horizontal, vertical, and cross section control, ¬†better design round trips, more design control options, better project-based quality control, and more forms of data output. This significant list of production benefits makes the small amount of extra work that is required to employ a Corridor to create our civil…

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 significant and common grading site design problems in Autodesk Civil 3D. We do need to acquire some skill and practice with Corridor design workflows. Corridor design methodology can be more productive than the classic Feature Lines only approach. After all, Corridors do produce and manage related Feature Lines in bunches.

That nifty trick alone says we…

Good Stuff! Project Explorer for Civil 3D (PE) is thankfully built into the new Autodesk Civil 3D 2024 install and the PE is now readily available the Civil 3D Right Click menus and Toolspace interfaces.
However, Autodesk Grading Optimization (GO) for Civil 3D 2024 remains a separate install.
The good news - like the PE, GO now only requires access…

Lots of us in Civil 3D Land love to whine about Site Grading in Autodesk Civil 3D. Many of us still employ the classic design by breaklines methodologies from our CAD historical past to produce our production grading designs in Civil 3D. It works. These days most of us might agree that Civil 3D Feature Lines are an improvement over AutoCAD 3D polylines.…
