Subassembly Reference

 
 
 

These topics describe the construction and behavior for each subassembly included in the AutoCAD® AutoCAD Civil 3D® Corridor Modeling catalogs. For more information on subassemblies, see Assemblies and Subassemblies in the AutoCAD Civil 3D Help.

The subassemblies in this subassembly reference are organized alphabetically into the following sections:

  • Introduction to Subassemblies

    AutoCAD Civil 3D subassemblies are preconfigured AutoCAD drawing objects that let you design three-dimensional sections of roadways and other corridor-type structures.

    This subassembly creates an open channel with a parabolic bottom, with optional lining and backslope links.

  • ConditionalCutOrFill

    This subassembly automatically applies various subassemblies, such as generic links, widening, ditching, or daylighting subassemblies, to an assembly based on whether a cut or fill condition exists.

  • ConditionalHorizontalTarget

    This subassembly automatically applies various subassemblies, such as widening, curb and gutter, ditching, or daylighting, to an assembly based on whether an offset target is found at the corridor station.

  • CrownedLane

    This subassembly creates a crowned lane that has separate subbase slope control, as well as the ability to control the subbase crown location by specifying a target alignment.

  • DaylightBasin

    This subassembly inserts links to create a basin and cut daylight slope for a cut condition, or a basin, berm, and fill slope for a fill condition.

  • DaylightBasin2

    This subassembly is similar to the DaylightBasin subassembly with the following additional behaviors:

  • DaylightBench

    This subassembly inserts links to create cut or fill catch slopes with repeating benches as needed.

  • DaylightGeneral

    This subassembly is a generalized solution to closing the sections from the outside edge of roadway to cut or fill intercept point.

  • DaylightInsideROW

    This subassembly inserts a daylight solution that will use a typical slope as long as the daylight is within the ROW limits.

  • DaylightMaxOffset

    This subassembly inserts a link that extends to a target surface at a user-defined cut or fill slope.

  • DaylightMaxWidth

    This subassembly inserts a link that daylights to a target surface at a user-defined cut or fill slope.

  • DaylightMinOffset

    This subassembly inserts a link that daylights to a target surface at a user-defined cut or fill slope.

  • DaylightMinWidth

    This subassembly inserts a link that daylights to a target surface at a user-defined cut or fill slope.

  • DaylightMultiIntercept

    This subassembly is used when a cut or fill daylight slope may have more than one intersection with the target surface.

  • DaylightMultipleSurface

    This subassembly lets you specify three surface layers and cut slopes for each material type.

  • DaylightRockCut

    This subassembly lets you select both an existing ground surface and a rock surface as targets.

  • DaylightStandard

    This subassembly creates corridor-side daylighting links with user-defined slope configurations, such as flat, medium, and maximum slopes for cut and fill situations.

  • DaylightToOffset

    This subassembly inserts a daylight link from the attachment point to a given offset from the baseline.

  • DaylightToROW

    This subassembly inserts a daylight link from the attachment point to a given offset from the right-of-way limit on a target surface.

  • Ditch

    This subassembly inserts a flat or V-shaped ditch with user-defined horizontal and vertical control parameters.

  • GenericPavementStructure

    This subassembly creates a simple pavement structure with user-definable point, link, and shape codes.

  • LaneBrokenBack

    This subassembly creates a cross-sectional representation of travel lanes for a broken-back roadway, where the inside and outside lanes have different downward slopes.

  • LaneFromTaperedMedian1

    This subassembly inserts one or more travel lanes outward at a constant grade from an alignment that defines the edge of a median that tapers to allow for left-turn lanes.

  • LaneFromTaperedMedian2

    This subassembly inserts one or more travel lanes outward from an alignment that defines the edge of a median.

  • LaneInsideSuper

    This subassembly creates a cross-sectional representation of finish grade, base layer, and subbase layer for a travel lane, applying the Inside Lane superelevation slope value for the corridor model’s baseline alignment.

  • LaneInsideSuperLayerVaryingWidth

    This subassembly creates a cross-sectional representation of a lane comprised of multiple layers. The layers can be of varying widths. It also applies the Outside Lane superelevation slope value for the corridor model's baseline alignment.

  • LaneInsideSuperMultiLayer

    This subassembly is similar to the LaneInsideSuper subassembly. However, there are additional layers within this subassembly, and the bottom layer does not follow the same slope as the finished grade. Instead it is controlled by an inside height and outside height.

  • LaneOutsideSuper

    This subassembly creates a cross-sectional representation of a travel lane, applying the Outside Lane superelevation slope value for the corridor model’s baseline alignment.

  • LaneOutsideSuperLayerVaryingWidth

    This subassembly creates a cross-sectional representation of a lane comprised of multiple layers. The layers can be of varying widths. It also applies the Outside Lane superelevation slope value for the corridor model's baseline alignment.

  • LaneOutsideSuperMultiLayer

    This subassembly is similar to the LaneOutsideSuper subassembly. However, there are additional layers within this subassembly, and the bottom layer does not follow the same slope as the finished grade. Instead it is controlled by an inside height and outside height.

  • LaneOutsideSuperWithWidening

    This subassembly inserts a travel lane, applying the Outside Lane superelevation slope value, and widens the pavement at superelevated regions.

  • LaneParabolic

    This subassembly creates a cross-sectional representation of finish grade, pavement, and subbase for urban, parabolic lanes between the left and right edges of traveled way.

  • LaneSuperelevationAOR

    This subassembly creates a cross-sectional representation of a travel lane, applying the Outside or Inside Lane superelevation slope value for the corridor model’s baseline alignment.

  • LaneTowardCrown

    This subassembly creates a cross-sectional representation of a travel lane that is being inserted from the inside edge of pavement towards the crown point.
