Chapter 10. Templates Plus: Assemblies and Subassemblies

Chapter 10. Templates Plus: Assemblies and Subassemblies

Roads, ditches, trenches, and berms usually follow a predictable pattern known as a typical section. Assemblies are how you tell Civil 3D what these typical sections look like. Assemblies are made up of smaller components called subassemblies. For example, a typical road section assembly contains subassemblies such as lanes, sidewalks, and curbs.

These typical sections, or assemblies, will be strung together into simple and complex corridor models in Chapter 11, "Easy Does It: Basic Corridors," and Chapter 12, "The Road Ahead: Advanced Corridors." In this chapter, the focus will be on understanding where these assemblies come from and how to build and manage them. Because it's difficult to understand the extensive applications of assemblies without seeing them in action in a corridor model, you may find it useful to work through the examples in this chapter and then come back and reread it after working through Chapters 11 and 12.
