Feature Lines have always carried the X,Y (like an Alignment) and the Z (similar to a Profile). I'm glad to finally see this AWESOME update in Civil 3D 2017, giving users the ability to create a Corridor from a Feature Line.

This is what we have been waiting for since the first release of Corridors... The ability for Corridors to turn tight corners without bumping into itself. We addressed this behavior and possible workarounds this in an earlier blog post, Casual Corridors.
OLD ISSUE: BOW TIE
In the new release of Civil 3D 2017, we gained a few more Pressure Pipe catalogs and a few more parts. Using the SetPressureNetworkCatalog command we can see the complete list
Since the release of Civil 3D Feature Lines, their interaction has plagued us. We discussed this very issue in a previous 2014 blog article, Grading Gone Wrong.
Autodesk took the hint and added in the use of Feature Line styles to control the Split point resolution within the Sites > Feature Lines > Properties…
When multiple alignments are present at an intersection, Civil 3D will recognize ALL of the alignments and create funky corridors.
It is not a typical scenario to have multiple alignments stacked up in the same location. However, there are some reasons for overlaps, such as:
During a recent AutoCAD Civil 3D Survey Class, we came across an issue when trying to customize the appearance of point labels within the Description Keys Configuration.
The Description Key ignores any value assigned to the "Label Fixed Rotation" field.
