Dynamo for Civil 3D

Dynamo for Civil 3D Videos

Autodesk staff and other experts produce a wide range of video content for Dynamo for Civil 3D.
Some is product sales demo, but a lot of the staff and other expert's recordings, video lists, and channels include useful application training and helpful tips and tricks for core AutoCAD and Autodesk Infrastructure products.
Content that is significant video training is listed here.

Objects by Region in Dynamo for Civil 3D

Ben Wardell of Autodesk walks through the details of how to modify an existing Dynamo for Civil 3D 2020 example script to add guardrail details to a corridor.
In this case the script adds 3D Blocks and generates a 3D solids to represent the guardrail details.
From the Autodesk Infrastructure Channel Videos.

Comments

Technically, the guardrails are not added by Region but by the Marked Point Codes applied to the Assemblies assigned to Regions on the Baseline.
The generation of the Polycurve by the Code Block is worth paying careful attention to. This then generates a lofted surface and the 3D solid railing. Could you use an external file and a Code Block?

Ben Wardell of Autodesk walks through the details of how to modify an existing Dynamo for Civil 3D 2020 example script to add detail to a corridor with retaining walls.
In this case the script adds 3D solids to represent structures added to the retaining wall at a range of stations at an increment.
From the Autodesk Infrastructure Channel Videos.

Comments

There is no escape from the challenge of understanding the nuances of scripting in Dynamo and
the need to have a plan and naming conventions (that you actually employ) to help manage the work in Dynamo and Civil 3D.

Ben Wardell of Autodesk walks through the details of how to build a Dynamo for Civil 3D 2020 script to place blocks along a Corridor from a csv file.
In this case 3D sign blocks added at specific stations and offsets based on an imported external csv file.
From the Autodesk Infrastructure Channel Videos.

Comments

The videos cover the essentials of access to the Civil 3D Document, External File Inputs and conversions, the use of Code blocks, and many Dynamo tools.
The issues of converting values into the current Coordinate System and performing the block insertion are covered in detail.
