When we speak of roadway design in AutoCAD Civil 3D we’re talking about Corridors and the often dicey details of Code Set Styles, Subassemblies, and Assemblies. Oops. That’s not true. Corridor solutions in AutoCAD Civil 3D do all types of grading solutions with typically more control and better results than other methods. They didn’t tell you that? See some Corridor example videos here. Non-linear corridor design solutions can change everything. Our Templates Only trial product will allow you to test the real deal for next to nothing.
Corridor output stuff is a sea of referenced Styles that effect your production output in Plan, Profile, and Sections. We all know that doing that in raw AutoCAD Civil 3D or even poorly customized Civil 3D will make you pull your hair out. Been there. Done that. Walk away.
An InstantOn Will Make Your Day
Speaking of software induced balding, we can best those famous TV info commercials. Did you ever notice the Autodesk doesn’t even bother to actually provide drawing examples of the stock subassemblies? I suppose the detailed subassembly help files are the official Autodesk answer. You study these intelligent meaningful gems on a regular basis, Right?
You’ve memorized all the Civil 3D stock codes and use them religiously in the Autodesk Subassembly Composer too? Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Missed by that much.
I’ve had smart people purchase an InstantOn Basic just because we supply the resource drawings that do document the stock Civil 3D Subassemblies.
Yes. IOB is so affordable you can’t recreate this one resource drawing for the price of the product. Your man-hours matter to someone? Tell the boss? See this recent post about tweaking our AASHTO compliant Assemblies for fun, more productivity in Civil 3D, and more profit. We supply Assemblies and Assembly Sets that work too.
Show Me the Money
What don’t you know? We even supply multiple super-duper Code Set Styles and provide those in resource drawings so you can see what you get for every single Autodesk supplied subassembly before you mess with your project drawings.
Right now you can produce great looking screened corridor output without a hitch and without hours of tweaking no matter what kind of corridor design solutions you’ve made? Pages of Sections have become a publish-on-demand afterthought?
What the Heck?
In an InstantOn Production Solution product we supply integrated Description Key Sets that will translate the stock codes into standard annotated descriptions too. You can even go back and forth. Why? It makes sense only if it is possible.
Don’t like our standard abbreviations or descriptions? Our Description Key Sets are maintained in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. How to use our infamous Spreadsheet Tools to tweak the results is fully documented and online.

Our latest Better Deliverables in AutoCAD Civil 3D video training course even mentions this powerful ability to automate your design deliverables related to any Alignment that you can shake a stick at.
I know some days you’d rather use a baseball bat. You are no alone.
You can document any point in a regular way with standardized abbreviations in any Civil 3D corridor(s) that employ stock Subassemblies in a flash and publish it in glorious Plan and Profile sheets and Pages of Sections without becoming a Civil 3D style super geek.
“Dave? Can our Civil 3D Templates and Civil 3D Styles do that? Dan? Peter? Anybody?”
