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…

Maybe you noticed that Autodesk puts some effort into improving Corridor design publication performance in the latest Civil 3D 2019.1 Update. The new enhancement capability to share Sample Line Groups as Data Shortcuts in projects comes to mind.

We can probably also agree that Civil 3D plan annotation of corridor models still needs serious work. Then again, sometimes we…

A Civil 3D CAD Manager from a regional civil engineering firm called me the other day. The topic of the Civil 3D Survey functionality for one reason or another came up in our conversation. For those of you who follow this blog, you know I’m a Civil 3D Survey fan for a host of reasons.

The CAD Manager claimed his firm had tried Survey once or twice, but these days ignored…
