Civil 3D: Corridor Highlights

September 1, 2022 Leo Lavayen

While working with Corridors recently, and wanted to review some of the neat corridor highlighting features, that I found helpful when editing complex corridor designs.

First, you can see how Baselines/Regions are highlighted as their corresponding rows are selected from the Corridor Properties > Parameters tab:  

The same highlighting occurs if you select a Corridor regions  from the Prospector tab

The colors used in highlighting can be set by users from the Settings tab > Corridor collection > Edit Feature Settings dialog > Region Highlight Graphics section:

Anther place where highlighting is enabled is while setting targets.  Notice how the subassemblies are highlighted in the Corridor Region (left window) and within built Assembly (right window):

Great visual enhancements to corridors that you may have missed.   Features that allow us to visualize what is being edited, especially when design is complex.
