Generating Curves for Alignments

Recommended Posts

bachrock

I'm wondering how to generate curves for alignments based on monuments. Say I have two monuments tha represent the start and end of a curve. The old method is to draw two perpendicular lines from the monuments and draw a circle with a radius where those lines connect. What is the new way using Civil 3d? Thanks.

Admittedly, I don't have much experience with Civil 3D, so caveat lector. The only ways I know to put a curve in an alignment are to draw a fixed curve segment using the Alignment Layout Tools; define the proper curve radius and draw a floating curve segment between the two lines; or draw a polyline that includes the curve and convert it into an alignment. You may be able to use a spiral segment, I've never done that.
