The Sample Line publication Feature in Civil 3D can be a bit befuddling to the new Civil 3D user.
Why do I need all these styles to get a "simple" Average End Area report? Because Civil 3D needs to know exactly what you mean by that.
You want to do this work in a publishing drawing and not a project design drawing. Civil 3D can do the work from an XREF corridor model.
The Alignment is the Design Control Manager in Civil 3D. You will need one in the publication drawing to collect the Sample Line Group and its parts.
Even our most basic Templates Only product includes all the necessary Style tools prebuilt for you.
