After the surveyors have finished their work and determined a property boundary, the next task is often to create a subdivision plan. Before Civil 3D, the designers would spend a few days sketching on paper or working through scenarios by trial and error with AutoCAD linework. With Civil 3D, the designer can work directly in the drawing with tools that automatically size parcels, as well as create dynamic labels and tables. Civil 3D makes it easy to go through more iterations of a subdivision plan in less time than traditional methods.
This chapter includes the following topics:
Converting a boundary to a parcel
Creating internal boundary segments
Creating lots at the end of a cul-de-sac
Creating evenly sized subdivision lots
