Ugly. That's the only way to describe the default AutoCAD Civil 3D corridors. Or, you could say a crazy Technicolor spider drew them. Either way, they don't look like roads. Most AutoCAD Civil 3D users simply switch between the various default Code Set Styles and then turn off the layers they don't want. In this class, we'll learn how to create and apply link, point, and shape styles to a corridor. This will let us shade the pavement, hatch the sidewalk, and show grass in the grading, while at the same time hiding those unsightly projection lines. Additionally, we'll take a look at how the Code Set Styles control the labels applied to corridor cross sections, and even how to use expressions to display only the information we need, while hiding what we don't want (such as the vertical grade of a curb face).
- Discover the difference between Links, Points, and Shapes in a Code Set Style
- Learn how to apply feature line and area fill styles to show/hide corridor elements
- Build a code-set style for use on construction documents
- Learn how to use expressions to control the text displayed on section labels
Dave began his search for CAD enlightenment in the civil engineering world, drawing up mortgage surveys about 25 years ago. From there, he switched over to a CAD manager position and then to IT manager, then started working with an Autodesk reseller about ten years ago. His computer science degree and IT background have helped him along the way with customizing and implementing unique solutions for over a dozen years. <br/><br/>Although his family still doesn’t know how to explain what he does, Dave has been working at Repro Products (an Autodesk reseller) as a Civil Application Engineer and Autodesk Certified Instructor to help companies with their Autodesk implementation and training needs.
