Join Dustin Manning for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding definition to the surface, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D: Topographic and Boundary Survey.
- [Instructor] Before we start adding definition…to the surface, we have to create the empty container.…We do that by going to the tool space on the Prospector tab,…locating Surfaces, and right-clicking Create Surface.…From here, you'll see the type of surface we're building.…Today, we're going to be focused on the Tin surface,…but there are other options.…We can do a Grid surface, Grid volume,…or a Tin volume surface for doing comparisons.…Ensuring Tin surface is chosen,…we'll move on to the surface layer.…
What this layer will do will determine…what layer controls the visibility of the surface.…Remembering that the surface is just an empty container,…and we put information into that container,…and, as a result, we can choose…how that information is displayed.…A typical way to do this is to create contours.…As you're working with this data,…remember that selecting the contours…is not the same as selecting the surface itself.…The contours are just a display style…of the surface information.…
Moving down to the name, I'm going to name this one…
