Join Eric Chappell for an in-depth discussion in this video Finalizing the storm design, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D: Site Design.
- [Instructor] To finish up our pond design…let's adjust the pond bottom elevation,…add an emergency spillway,…and adjust the outfall location.…Remember that we defined our pond with a grading object,…so adjusting the pond bottom elevation is going to be easy.…That's one of the things you always want to be thinking about…when you're building designs in Civil 3D.…If something changes am I building things in a way…that it will make it easy to make edits down the road?…So something like the bottom of a pond,…that can change as new calculations come to light…or more pipes are added,…or the dimensions of the pond changes,…something along those lines.…
Because of the way we've built this pond…we've made it very easy on ourselves…to change the pond bottom elevation.…All I need to do is select the grading object…that defines that,…go to Grading Editor,…we're currently targeting 2152,…it turns out that we're way too low…and we actually need to be up at 2155.…I'll just simply type that in,…press Enter, close down the Grading Editor,…
