Clash Detection with Dynamo for Civil 3D
Stephen Walz demos a Dynamo for Civil 3D script and workflow to help us automate Network clash detection.
From the Stephen Walz YouTube Channel
Stephan delivers a interesting approach and solution to a common Civil 3D problem with a Dynamo script solution.
Faster Parking Lots from Widenings
Jim Coppinger of ZenTek Consultants explains how to inventively employ Offset Alignments and Widenings to perform parking lot layout design in Civil 3D.
From the ZenTek Consultants YouTube Channel.
Old school AutoCAD Design layout with polylines, line, and arcs is not only tedious it is far less flexible than the well-developed intermediate and advanced skills for Alignments and their important children in Civil 3D.
This is the best short video I've seen in a long while than makes this excellent point about Civil 3D functionality that often gets lost to our old work habits. Thanks Jim. You made my day.
We do have to practice at these Civil 3D create and edit skills to get good at them. Grips skill and other edit skills do not come by seeing but by doing.
The positive results will be more design optionality and new and improved design heuristics.
Median Design with Corridors
Kyle Groves, a Technical Specialist at ATG, explains detailed demo of the use of Marked Point and LinktoMarkPoint tools for median design in Civil 3D.
From the ATG YouTube Channel.
This is a decent walk through of median mechanics in Civil 3D with a focus on the use and purpose of Marked Point and LinktoMarkPoint subassemblies.
Kyle also manages to dig himself a design ditch delivering an solid approach to a common design problem which is instructive all be itself.
I'm not sure of the reasons for Kyle's aversion for more Regions in his Baselines or the addition of more Baselines in the example Corridor.
The necessity of Region and Baseline management in Corridors is another deep and time consuming topic. No worries.
The details of the employment of buried lanes, Marked Points (and their relationship to Codes in Code Set Styles) and LinktoMarkPoints in Assemblies is an important series of tips.
Any Free source of Subassembly Composer PKT files we can get and modify is a good thing. Thank you, CTC Software.
