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.

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…
I was recently teaching a custom Civil 3D grading class where the client wanted to label a Feature Line’s elevation, at will, along the length of the line, without adding extra points.
There is NO out of the box label, but after poking around, I came up with a possible workflow:
- Used a Note type label
(found in the TOOLSPACE Settings tab > General > Labels Styles > Note )
I was recently teaching a custom Civil 3D class that involved some advanced grading and shared with the client some tips on use of Feature Lines and Grading Objects. I was able to show off the awesome powers of features and grading objects built in intelligence. That is how grading can interact with each-other.
If you still don’t know what I am talking about or have never seen it, what I am referring to is the ability that gradings created from separate feature lines in the same site and group, can clean up when they bump into each other.
