A Primer on Better Civil 3D Surface Creation

See the previous Feature Line Grading video


Get over the unique language of FDOT's process and drawing creation. This is an excellent and detailed how to of surface creation.
Note the repeated and consistent process steps to create surfaces, publish the result surface into LandXML (to freeze it), and share that in a project context.
Doug also covers surface and Survey data imports of LandXML data which is not often covered well in the public domain.

Need I point out that FDOT employs multiple different types of inegrated Model Templates for different tasks inside the project context.
The Framework for Civil 3D allows you to easily create the same and manage the Style tools together.
