With the restricted supply of urban land and its increasing cost, developers are using land for subdivisions that was once considered unsuitable, leading to smaller, more complex projects on restricted footprints. In this class, we will look at numerous case studies of grading small lots that involve the use of AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software (since Release 2007) and grading, corridor, and pipe objects. We will review one person's workflow for getting the job done when Civil 3D is pushed to the extreme.
- Structure small projects efficiently to limit software issues
- Export grading feature data in a user-friendly format for site
- Identify key site features and the Civil 3D objects that are required to model those features
- Be able to apply grading and corridor objects to generate complex finished surfaces
