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.

 Automated Civil 3D Points with Dynamo

Automated Civil 3D Points with Dynamo

2/18/2019

 

 

The February 2020 Autodesk Civil Engineering Community Virtual MeetUps webinar. Michelle Rasmussen and others from Autodesk with Dylan Kahle of Pennoni share a walk through of automating COGO Points on Alignments with a Dynano script.
This is an instructive webinar about Dynamo for Civil 3D - Dylan constructs the script from scratch and covers the details. The demo starts about 15 minutes in.

 Pipe Network Updates with Dynamo

Pipe Network Updates with Dynamo

Stephen Walz demos a simple Dynamo script connect your Pipe Networks to Alignments in your C3D designs so that the Structures and Pipes dynamically update in Civil 3D.

I bet you want a copy of this Dynamo script. Creates and maintains an Alignment station-based dynamic relationship between the Structures and an Offset Alignment. Ok. Any Alignment.
Left unsaid is the rim elevations here are coming from the Corridor surface. This speaks to a good reason to employ design by Corridor approaches to many problems in Civil 3D.
Now you are going to ask about the inlet structures (not shown in this video) that are probably placed on the other side of the road.

Ok. We would probably create a new surface and add the file as a Point File reference to that and be quicker. That's true especially if you don't need the COGO Points.
The reality is that Dynamo for Civil 3D and AutoCAD continues to grow in depth and detail with each new Civil 3D Update.

The fact that the latest Dynamo now supports COGO points leads itself to entire new and quicker ways to perform many annotative and labelling tasks.
Scripts to output Corridor point code details from Civil 3D Toolbox report output in Excel as labels comes to mind.
