Description

An area of land is represented geometrically in three dimensions as a surface, or in the case of volume surfaces, as a difference or composite between two surface areas.When Autodesk Civil 3D links the points that make up the surface data, it produces triangles or grids, which are the building blocks of surfaces.You can make a surface that is empty and then fill it with data to use it in your drawing. Additionally, you can import pre-existing files containing surface data, including LandXML, TIN, or DEM files.The fundamental components of the initial surface information are often points or contours, which are augmented by breaklines and borders.A surface's viewable area is determined by its boundaries. When calculating things like total area and volume, only the space inside the boundary is taken into account. Masks can be created to hide or reveal specific areas of a surface for editing or presentation needs while still accounting for those areas in computations.On TIN surfaces, breaklines are used to identify linear features, such as retaining walls and streams, that triangles cannot cross. Surface triangulation is impacted by breaklines.For instance, you can create various sets of contours for various intervals. The results are better when the surface object is smoothed as a whole rather than just the contours. The build procedure for surfaces in Autodesk Civil 3D is gradual. The surface is updated as new or updated data is added. Definitions are listed for each surface. All of the operations carried out on the surface are included in this list. You can change a surface to accommodate different sorts of analysis or restore it to a prior condition by turning the operations on and off.
