With Civil 3D 2009, there are a lot of small things that make me happy. There are quite a few tweaks to styles dialogs, user options and command prompts that don’t seem like much but really make a difference.
Read on to see one I am working with today…
You can now mirror your subassemblies! Simply pick a subassembly that you want on the other right of the road. Right click and choose Mirror. (Do NOT use the AutoCAD mirror command.)
The command will prompt you to choose where you would like it attached. Pick the place you want to PUT the assembly. The first few times I did this, I chose the vertical assembly bit thinking the command would behave like the AutoCAD mirror command. My curbs wound up attached to the centerline. What I needed to do was click the point on the lane where I wanted the curb to attach,etc.
