There are uncomfortable and unexpected truths squirrelled away in the simplest annotative tasks in Autodesk Civil 3D. Model-based software means some basic tasks are fundamentally different and more complex for seemingly no apparent reason. There is a reason as we shall see.
Indeed, some planned and managed complexity can provide us with more bang for the…Read more
Autodesk made some quiet and undocumented changes to the default Corridor properties in the latest Autodesk Civil 3D 2021.1 Update.

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
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…Read more
