Working with large sites and long roadways can be a challenging design task. Setting up sheets, checking the scales, and consistently creating viewports with content that flows through the design are all part of the project. With the plan production tools in Civil 3D software, you can automate the process of creating these types of sheets quickly. We will explore how to use these tools to create multiple plan sheets, plan and profile sheets, and sections on multiple layouts, which ties it all together in a sheet set ready for publishing your deliverable. Let’s get productive and learn how to optimize the production of final plans and profile drawings.
- Understand and use the workflow of plan production tools
- Learn how to set up drawing templates for plan and production
- Learn how to create plan, profile, and section sheets using plan production tools
- Learn how to publish drawings created during the plan production process using the Sheet Set manager (SSM)
