The Corridor Modeling toolset is a group of highly interactive commands to create new design surfaces that represent a new roadway or other type of surface. Tools for creation, modification, management, and report functions are supported.
Corridor Modeling tools aggregates a variety of civil data. The geometry is created with the Horizontal and Vertical Geometry tools, while the existing ground is defined by a Civil 3D mesh or Civil Terrain Model. Plan view elements, such as edges of pavement, shoulders, curbs, etc. can be 2D or 3D. Superelevation information is defined within a design file using standards or imported data. Templates are utilized from one or more template libraries.
Reference files can be used extensively with Corridor Modeling. On a simple project, the data may be all in one file; larger projects may have geometry in one file, plan view graphics in a second, terrain in another, superelevation in a fourth and the actual model in a fifth. All files can reference the others, to present a complete picture of the project.
