Seth Cohen of Digital Drafting Systems Inc delivers demos on the new Civil 3D 2021 Pressure Pipes Runs and other plan production tips and tricks.
From the Digital Drafting Systems Inc YouTube Channel.

Comments

Seth does a great high-speed job of covering some of the significant and nuanced production issues for the new Civil 3D 2021 Pressure Pipes Runs;
How to calculate the average elevation of a floodplain from a polygon, and the use of ACAD named Views for Plan Production Sheet layouts.

If you don't employ named Views in Civil 3D, you are just being silly and wasting time on the less important things.

Correct Civil 3D Pipes Export to ESRI SHP

Scott Mizsak, a Technical Specialist at ATG, explains how to fix incorrect Pipe Invert elevations from Civil 3D to ESRI SHP export.
This is an annoying known bug in current releases of Civil 3D. What people mean by Invert Elevation matters.
From the ATG YouTube Channel.

Comments

Lots of good and necessary detail in this video if you must produce the SHP files deliverable.
Hopefully, this silliness gets fixed in the Civil 3D 2020 Update 4 and above.
The current version of the ArcGIS Connector may not share this problem since it was more recently updated.
That's worth checking since that may produce a valid FGDB and hence produce a SHP deliverable.
