Create a Civil 3D Surface from SHP

Stephen Walz shows how to use the CREATESURFACEFROMGISDATA command to import SHP data into a Civil 3D Surface.
From the Stephen Walz YouTube Channel

Comments

Ah. Those initial concept surfaces based on GIS data are sometimes a must do. They can certainly be combined with collected classic or aerial survey data.

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

If you root around in the Civil 3D videos on his channel, you may see parts of the Framework for Civil 3D at work.

Comments

Perhaps Stephen initially forgets to create a selection window area in this walkthrough. After he does that the video demonstrates the differnce in the results.

 Create a Pipe Structure Style

Korey Gaddy, of TPM Solutions, details how to create a new Plan View Structure Style from a block in Civil 3D.
From the TPM Solutions YouTube Channel

Comments

Korey presents the essentials of the creation of the Plan View of a Structure Style from a custom block well.
I suggest you employ raw AutoCAD to create the block and plan the name and storage location thoughtfully.
You actually do not want to include the Map coordinate system data in the WBLOCKed block.

This video is not a walk-through about the use of the Infrastructure Parts Editor in Civil 3D.
