Creation of Corridor Solids in Civil 3D now has its own menu entry in the 2015 version. In previous versions Corridor Solids were only available as an add-in from the Toolspace > Toolbox.
What are Corridor Solids?
Corridor Solids are used to represent Civil 3D subassembly shapes as extruded solids to create objects such as: Pavement Layers, Tunnels, and Retaining Walls etc. The extruded solids can then be exported to analysis products, such as Navisworks, for Visual Analysis, Design Verification and Construction Sequencing
How do I do it?
To extract 3D Solids, select a corridor in Civil 3D then on the corridor contextual menu select ‘Extract Corridor Solids’
All subsequent panels operate the same as before.
