Greetings from the Infrastructure Universe, I recently received questions about the Plan and Production tools in Civil 3d and whether those have the ability to generate tiled sheets for projects that do not fall along an alignment.
The short answer is YES, Civil 3D does have this ability and has had it since the 2004 release. This tool can even make Key maps and place a box on each corresponding part of the title block. The command is called MapBookCreate. Check out this video below from Autodesk's Jerry Bartell that demonstrates how it works.
