From a CAD / BIM management perspective, Civil 3D can be used to set up the sheet arrangement for corridors.

This can be done using some dummy alignment if the path of the alignment is known to some extent at the beginning of the project.

A typical Title-block is draped over the alignment with an overlap. If other members of the team use AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT, the same arrangement can then be used by them.

How they would set up their views is covered in the next blog.

First, device on an appropriate scale to use for the sheets. Set the annotative scale accordingly (the sheets will be created to this scale).

Next, create view frames

Choose the alignment of interest and set the station range of interest (or just use the automatic option).

Choose the template that holds the Title-blocks and then use the correct scale.

The view alignment can be set to Along alignment to Rotate to North. The rotate to north option would make the setting up of views easier in vanilla AutoCAD, although, if the skills to manage the UCS and views in AutoCAD is available, there is nothing that will stop one from using the Along alignment option. Set the styles and naming as required

Finally, create the view frames.

The result is shown below. This arrangement can now be used in AutoCAD to set up views for CAD workflows (non-BIM Civil 3D).
