Infrastructure Tuesday: Alignments and Profiles
Alignments and profiles are the foundation of most civil engineering projects. Civil 3D users should be comfortable creating both alignments and profiles. In this month’s #InfrastractureTuesday webinar, Tim Long demonstrated how to use alignments and profiles in Civil 3D.
Alignments and profiles are used in civil infrastructure projects to lay out roads, railways, runways, trails, and more. In these situations, alignments often represent the center line of a road, a curb return, the edge of a travel way, etc. while profiles are lengthwise vertical representations of an alignment.
