Transition a Corridor Daylight Slope

Corridor daylight slopes are very easy…unless you need to transition from 1:1 to 5:1 over a station range.  It can be done, but it’s a little tricky.  Find out how after the jump.

2011 – Corridors

There was a post in the Civil 3D Wishlist a while back.  It was centered around making corridors easier to modify.

  • It’s very easy to add and remove custom sections
  • The entire corridor doesn’t need to rebuild.  When some edits are made, only that part of the corridor is rebuilt – faster.
