Corridor Driveways, Sidewalks and ADA Ramps - Autodesk University 2010 ONLINE

Autodesk University was great. Had a lot of fun in VEGAS, it’s like a play ground for grownups. If you were unable to make the conference this year check it out online. All classes are available for FREE if your company is on subscription. Autodesk University Website

Please check out my class this year and classes I did previously.

The most prolific topic that I discussed was utilizing Conditional Subassemblies, ConditionalHorizontalTargets to complete driveways, sidewalks and ADA ramps. Below is an example of how this works.

Plan view results applying one assembly. Notice the curb is removed from the drive ways, and the sidewalk continues through the walk, but is removed from the road. This is accomplished by simply placing polylines at critical locations. The conditional subassemblies have an option to look for the nearest or the farthest target and associating the correct subassembly. The red polylines placed on the driveway applies the gutter subassembly and the green polyline marks the target for where a region should be placed so no subassembly is applied. More elaborate subassemblies can be developed to utilize conditional subassemblies after each individual subassembly. Have fun and remember to place and test the targets are working, before applying the no target subassembly.
Review the class for further details on this concept and unique way to handle intersections


  1. I reading your blog this blog is amazing & your blog about Driveway repairs Poole is excellent thanks for sharing this interesting blog.

  2. r--gosh I sure miss those warm days. When I look at these photos of the lawn I think about the hours and hours of lawn mowing we do. We have six acres.wood fence styles
