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.

As usual, Stephan delivers an interesting approach and solution to a classic and tedious Civil 3D problem with some nice clear Dynamo script goodies.
Stephan's systematic buildup of the complexity of the Dynamo script is worth our attention.

Some of us might like to assign Point Numbers by his Description Point Groups via some managed numbering plan. This is possible.
Adding the Point Numbering Code Blocks to the final scripts should not be a big deal if you employ an Excel or CSV file to lookup that for each list.
You could also employ a simple traverse like Alignment to Group the point locations by Setup location and maximum distance metrics if you were so inclined.
That might be useful if you employ Corridors and Features lines to design and document the design.

This sort of Style Standards converstion will continue to get easier in Civil 3D as Dynamo gets more supported Nodes.
Via custom Python code blocks and the Civil 3D API you can get to and update more types of Styles.
Needless to say, the order of the Style Tuple processing also grows in complexity and importance.
