This class presents advanced AutoCAD Civil 3D corridor modeling techniques used to accomplish various roadway design objectives. Most of the workflows were developed while working on highway overlay and widening projects for California Department of Transportation. We will show students modeling solutions that were created using corridor targeting, conditional subassemblies, and subassembly output properties.
- Understand the assembly construction process and how it affects corridor processing
- Learn how to use conditional subassemblies, instead of regions, to control where roadway elements occur along a corridor
- Learn how to use output properties to apply existing cross slopes to any lane subassembly
- Learn how to use targeting and output properties to generate variable-depth pavement and overlays
