Video: Pond designed with a Maintenance Road to access bottom of the pond…


Finished Pond Design

An example of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in action!

A pond design such as this can be easily achievable. As always, with a program like AutoCAD Civil 3D, there are various workflows that can be developed but I would like to share a workflow that’s simplistic and provides great results with regards to the surface.

To pulling this off, create a surface from the Grading Group named POND and create another surface for the RAMP (access road) then paste the RAMP surface into the POND surface. Select image below to play video!!

Click to play... I hope this video gives you some ideas on your next pond design. Until next time, have a great weekend!
