Thanks to everyone who tuned in to learn about Alternative Uses for Corridor Models.
Sorry this didn’t get up yesterday.
If you missed this webcast, it is now available at:
And while you are there, there are a ton of previously recorded and upcoming webcasts regarding generic links, custom subassemblies and corridors that you need to check out!

CHANNELS, RIVERS AND POND

For those of you that saw the webcast- I have made a few changes the pond drawing.Â
1) I fixed my problem where I had originally made the pond out of basic lanes (ha!) though the model would still work out fine that way
2) My spillway was actually a side effect of not making separate profile views of the LWL and HWL targets.Â I had been targeting LWL and HWL that I had draw on the centerline profile, and they wouldn’t be quite as long and the actual LWL and HWL alignments (see Corridor Skill Review Link #1 below) so I fixed that so the drawing was “pure”. You could also just make them longer on the CL profile view. I could now adjust HWL and NWL profiles at the spillway location to get one, or if the accidental way gave you your desired result- that’s OK too!

GRADING OBJECTS AND FEATURE LINES
Ok, so maybe you can’t use corridors for everything.Â In that case, try grading and feature lines.
