Learn about the plan production tools in Civil 3D, and how you can use them to make creating design sheets a lot easier.
- [Instructor] You've finished your design, and now you need to create your submittal design sheets for the client. Creating the design sheets is easy to do with the builtin plan production tools in Civil 3D. Hi, I'm Kate Ming, a California licensed civil engineer. I've been training in Civil 3D for five years and currently work as an engineer for San Francisco's Bay Area Rapid Transit System. I'm excited to introduce you to the plan production tools. In this course, I will discuss the importance of a template and sheet set files and the role they play in the plan production process.
You will see how the template file and sheet set files are linked and work together to create the text and the title block in the finished sheets. In understanding the template and sheet set files, we will delve into creating text fields and block attributes. I will also explain the importance of selecting the correct viewport type in the layouts. Next, we will focus on creating plan and profile sheets. In this process, we will create view frames and then the sheets themselves. And lastly, we will create cross section sheets which include creating sample lines, multiple cross sections, and finally, the sheets themselves.
Let's jump in and have some fun.
