Autodesk's Sean Hulbert delivers a basic webinar review of the Subassembly Composer for Civil 3D essentials.
From the Autodesk Customer Success


A decent instructional and detailed webinar to get and deliver productive solutions with Subassembly Composer for Civil 3D.
If spite of the advertized roadway design theme for the webinar, the only thing roadway is the fact that a corridor in modified with a PTK during the presentation.
If you try to employ the Civil 3D default Point, Link, and Shape codes in your PKTs, the necessay Code Set Style integrations are a lot easier to manage.

A well done basic Civil 3D Subassembly Composer tutorial in under 8 minutes.
This replicates a simple Assembly you could easily build with stock Civil 3D Tool Palette Subassembly parts, but covers the mechanics and details in the Composer well.
Maybe you want to add a Key to the structure or optional drainage to one side?

A caution - You probably always do want to try employ the stock Civil 3D Point, Link, and Shape Code names as much as possible to reduce the number of Code Set Style and other edits needed to employ any PKT.
Using familiar Civil 3D parameter names will also help Civil 3D users more easily employ the PKT.

I always have to remind people that you should try employ the existing Civil 3D Point, Link, and Shape namespace in your PKT files as much as possible.
This simple discipline reduces the annoying requirement to add the unknown Point, Link, and Shape codes into any existing Code Set Styles.
Look for the C3DStockSubassemblyScripts.codes file in ..\ProgramData\Autodesk\civil 3D version\enu folder of your Civil 3D install.
Editing the PKT files supplied with Civil 3D or that you get from others is worth the small amount of hassle to reduce the downstream production wasted time.
