Civil 3D Corridors become ever more useful for Site Design tasks. If we insist that our old school CAD perceptions of the civil engineering design issues and workflows are correct, in effect, we believe that our old AutoCAD habits and skills are more important than any new Civil 3D skills and the ever-increasing capabilities of Civil 3D itself. This is us being human. This is just silly.

We…  Read more

Folk complain that Civil 3D is not really user-friendly for Site Design. This is bunk. The complaint is true only if you insist that site design in Civil 3D should be like it was for years in old school CAD software. We insist our AutoCAD skills are more important than new Civil 3D skills and capabilities. About the only thing Civil 3D has in common with that old software is Civil 3D’s use of similar…

The Civil 3D Subassembly Composer allows us to construct our own customized Subassemblies for use in our Corridor Assemblies. Autodesk has released a number of really useful PKT files over the last few releases of Civil 3D. Sadly, some folks don’t bother to test and employ them. Others do.

One of those other Civil 3D users saw the

Last time we explored some basic iPOD (Intelligent Publish on Demand) workflow mechanics to help us deal with the annotation of Corridor models. We previewed that in a video to show the Civil 3D mechanics of how we can create Corridor Station…

These days Civil 3D will actually let us reach deeper and directly into the current state of the Corridor Model data behind. The reality that we can Data Shortcut Corridor Models in our projects enhances our Civil 3D potential annotative capabilities significantly. How that might be accomplished could take a bit to get our head around.

Case…
