[VIDEO] How to Use the Quick Cross-Section Tool in Civil 3D
In Civil 3D 2018, if you go to the Toolbox tab and expand Miscellaneous Utilities, you will see the category for Surfaces. Under that, you will see Quick Cross Section. This utility originally came out with the Transportation Pack for 2016. It was a command that former LDD users had been asking for.
While it could use some of the features that the Quick Profile command has, it is intended to be an inquiry tool to take a fast look at a Civil 3D surface. In the video to the right, I walk through the process of using this tool in Civil 3D 2018.
