…Once you have completed your corridor, you may find it…useful to also create a surface, which represents the elevations of your road.…In this video, you'll learn about specific tools that are designed to make it…easy to build a surface based on your corridor.…One of the reasons we might want to build a surface for…the corridor, is to see contours representing the corridor elevations.…There are actually lots of reasons why you'd want a surface for…your road design in Civil 3D, because surfaces are a key…core function of Civil 3D that are often used in other parts of the software.…
So to get started I'll click the corridor, bringing up the contextual ribbon tab and…there we see a corridor surfaces command.…I'll simply launch the command and that brings up the corridor surfaces dialogue.…I'll start by clicking the button on the far left which creates a new surface.…And in the first column I can modify the name of that surface and…I'm just going to add the letters FG at the end to stand for finished ground.…
