Join Eric Chappell for an in-depth discussion in this video Daylighting, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D: Site Design.
- [Instructor] With the curbs in place,…it's now time to tie everything…into existing ground elevations.…Now, it's not a good practice…to slope right off the back of the curb…into existing ground.…So we want to create a little bit of a flat space…behind the curb so that you're not doing just that.…You're not just tying straight down from the back.…So I'm going to use the Stepped Offset command one more time…off the back of the curb and I'm going to offset two feet…and I'm going to go to the outside,…add a grade of, so I'll click Grade, of 2%.…
So just again, establishing a little bit of an offset there…and I'm going to change the style of that feature line.…I'm going to go to Feature Line Properties…and I'm going to change that to…a Site Grading Construction Line…because it's not a curb line…and I don't want it to get mistaken as one.…Okay.…Another thing I'm going to do is…I see that I'm getting kind of close…between this feature line and this feature line…and I'm worried about the next few things that I do…having an interaction with that other feature line.…
