 Leverage the Civil 3D AREA Command

Leverage the Civil 3D AREA Command



Stephen Walz shows how use the Area command to report individual and collected areas from select object in Civil 3D.
From the Stephen Walz YouTube Channel


AREA is a great quick and dirty way to get what you need without resorting to much more convoluted Civil 3D mechancis.

We Start the video a bit in to skip Stephen's infomercial and request for future topics to cover.


 Feature Line Based Corridor Curb Returns

Feature Line Based Corridor Curb Returns



Shawn Herring of ProSoft walks through the details how to use Feature Lines to design the Curb Return Regions in an Intersection-based Corridor in Civil 3D.
From the ProSoft YouTube Channel


Shawn covers more than the basic mechanics here pretty quickly. Important tips like Feature Line reversal and the Corridor Match Properties command are shown.
If you live and breathe editing Feature Lines you'll like this approach to curb returns.

You can also replace the automatically built Curb Return Regions generated by the Intersection Wizard with Feature Line targets built like this.

Shawn does not do some Region Station matching cleanup in the video. You might want to watch those details in your production work. Overlapping Regions in the Corridor model can produce resolution problems that are hard to find later.
I honestly don't mind the extra detailed work of Curb Return Profile design in intersections, but sometimes the Feature Line solution makes more sense to some.


 Build and Manage Effective Assemblies

Build and Manage Effective Assemblies



Russ Nicloy of ACEC Wisconsin walks through the details and nuances of Subassemblies in Civil 3D Assembly construction and maintenance in Civil 3D.
From the ACEC Wisconsin YouTube Channel


The best how to and deepest best practices video for Assembly construction I've seen in quite a while. Hoorah.

This topic does require more topic content slides. There is more said than is included in the points on the slides.
