We recently discussed crucial concepts and newer workflows to produce better Managed Site Grading solutions inside Autodesk Civil 3D. We employed some excellent How To videos from other Civil 3D experts to clarify how we all can couple our previous Feature Lines Only method and practice with valuable new Civil 3D Corridor skills and workflows to better tackle many civil engineering design challenges.

See the recent Managed Site Grading in Civil 3D post and videos.

Improved Dynamic Design and Multiple Baseline Corridors

The folks out in Civil 3D Land will laugh and point out that I appear to appreciate all the complicated, integrated, and managed detail we must plan and execute well to get the Multiple Baseline Corridor work done in Civil 3D.

Multiple Baseline Corridors (MBC) are robust design and deliverables documentation tools. The Multiple Dynamic Baseline Corridor - the Complex Corridor - is one of my favorite things in Civil 3D. Why?
Project-based, managed design in Civil 3D is what I tend to rave about in this blog. We all need the improved tools and means to employ multiple design options in Civil 3D.

Improved Results in Less Time

It’s true. I’m spoiled. The many supplied Civil 3D resources in the Framework for Civil 3D do make the iterative design and development of the Complex Corridor more approachable.
The Power of Choice available in our Jump Kit product does make that not-so-simple Complex Corridor challenge more possible.

The Framework for Civil 3D is affordable for all civil engineering and survey professionals.

We supply multiple Civil 3D Sandbox Projects to help everyone understand the mechanics.
That speaks volumes about the real liberty we provide to work in Civil 3D.
See the Medians and Turn Lanes Sandbox Project video page for links to the post.


The Medians and Turn Lanes Sandbox Project

The Framework for Civil 3D’s supplied classic project dataset always included examples of dynamic intersection and knuckle resolutions with Civil 3D Corridor tools.

The Knuckle and the Complex Corridor

Here’s another expert’s take on knuckle intersection resolution that employs Connected Alignments and Profiles, multiple Corridors, Extracted Features Lines, and current Civil 3D tools and mechanics.


Build Dynamic Knuckles in Civil 3D

The CADiot Savant demos how to employ Civil 3D Connected Alignments and Feature Lines to build dynamic knuckle intersection solutions in Civil 3D.

The use of 2018+ Connected Alignments and Profile pairs in Corridors is a significant design method improvement in Civil 3D.

Mixing DREF design control with drawing design control can indeed cause Connected Alignment update issues.
We can employ all DREF design control in the Corridors and produce great results.
That does mean we edit that design control in the design control data shortcut drawing(s).

It appears whether our project includes Site Grading or complex Roadways design, our Civil 3D Corridor skills, Civil 3D Templates, Civil 3D Style Tools, and other Civil 3D resources available to us will always make a significant production difference.

No surprise to those of us at work in Civil 3D Land. Just sayin’.
