Useful Civil 3D Training from public website sources

    Autodesk staff, Autodesk Reseller staff, and consultants produce a wide range of video content. Some is product sales demo, but a lot of the staff and/or consultant recordings, lists, and channels include useful application training and helpful tips and tricks for Infrastructure Design products.
    Content that is significant video training is listed here.

 Civil 3D Layers Best Practices

Civil 3D Layers Best Practices

7/11/2021

 

Kyle Groves, a Technical Specialist at ATG, delivers an instructional walkthrough about AutoCAD Layer functionality in Civil 3D.
From the ATG YouTube Channel.

Comments

The first 38 minutes of this video is a good instructional review of AutoCAD Layer basics and Civil 3D Layer mechanics in Civil 3D Styles and Settings.
Funny. Almost upfront Kyle states that Styles are more powerful than Layers in Civil 3D then proceeds to talk about and employ the AutoCAD Layer Manager time and time again.
It is easy to almost never employ the AutoCAD Layer Manager in the production use of Civil 3D. Say what?
For reasons unknown, Kyle dodges some really important essential tools like Layer States.

Simply put: Great Civil 3D Style Tools coupled with managed Layers States create more freedom to work better and faster in Civil 3D.
What do you know? The Framework for Civil 3D Spreadsheet tools produce Layer Standards spreadsheets that work with the CTC tools.

Autodesk's Jeff Bartels covers how to employ Materials Subcriteria for multiple surface volume calculations in Civil 3D.
In other words - how to calculate multiple controlled volumes of materials between mulitple surfaces in Corridors.
See the Jeff Bartels YouTube Channel.
and the Civil Immersion blog.

Kyle Groves, a Technical Specialist at ATG, delivers an instructional walkthrough of how to create and calculate Volumes in Civil 3D.
This webinar covers basic and more advanced site grading design issues, tools, and CTC Software Tool improvements.
From the ATG YouTube Channel.

Comments

If you do grading site work for a living, the first section of this video is old news. Watch on.
The second section covers the more common volume calculation issues at the level and depth that we must deal with.

The Civil 3D Feature Lines Only crowd will appreciate the workflow and step-by-step detail.
How the CTC Tools compare to Autodesk's new Grading Optimization Tool is something to consider.

I beg to differ with Kyle on an important point.
Civil 3D Site design corridors are not clunky. Corridors produce better managed Feature Lines. Site design corridors take more planned design control work to produce more adaptive results.
They do so better in a project-based, shared-data environment as well.
Rarely, is site grading design performed in a single drawing unless that is what you do. Hmmm?
