Naviate Road Features

Naviate Road contains many useful features, below we have listed a selection of the most popular ones. Naviate Road is a part of the Naviate Infrastructure bundle, please visit that page for general features or download a free trial to explore all features.

Import Assembly

You can create a library of your own Assemblies, on a local or network drive, to allow yourself or your colleagues to import into any other design.

Verify and Update Assembly

As the Naviate Import/Export Assembly tool handles versions, you can easily publish a new version and notify the consumers to automatically update the imported assembly.

Import Corridor Settings

You can import Corridor Settings from any Source Corridor, e.g. Frequency Settings, Surface Settings and Slope Patterns. Command is scriptable for batch update.

Export Corridor Solids to CSV

Solids can be divided into intervals along the alignment and Property Data are added accordingly. The command is also scriptable.

Find and Replace Subassembly Values

Performs Find and Replace on values (text, integer, or real) in selected subassemblies.

Export corridor feature lines

Exports selected feature lines/subassembly codes in a corridor to a coordinate-file or to feature lines, including the ability to use a translation file ro rename codes and layers.

Naviate Subassemblies

Naviate comes with a large number of customized subassemblies for the European market. The Subassembly Tool imports any subassembly from any dwg-file.

Analyse and export Property Data

The Property Data can be used to search, analyse and quantify your design. You can edit the data and export it to CSV for further analysis or edits in e.g. Excel.

Volumes calculation

Advanced volume calculation from e.g. a Road Bottom Surface that cuts through multiple volume surfaces e.g. Soil, Clay, Rock etc. The result can be exported to CSV.

Max/Min Surface

Creates a surface from minimum or maximum values of two surfaces. The surface is created where the surfaces overlap and is created by both surfaces’ triangles.

Navisworks Views

Writes viewpoints from alignment/profile to an XML-file that can be imported into Navisworks with Import Viewpoints, to “drive” along the Alignment/Profile.

Kerbstone Quantification

A simple tool to quantify the number of Kerbstones with different standard radiuses. Supports alignments, polylines, arcs and lines. The result is saved in a property set on the objects.

Stepped Profile

Creates a profile in steps of fixed lengths and heights. Combining the tools Stepped Profile, Solids From Corridor and the Retaining Wall Subassembly allows you to create Precast Retaining Walls.

Offset Profile

Copies a selected profile and lowers it an entered elevation. Same command can update a selected offset-profile or all offset-profiles in the drawing.

Bus Stop

Creates a bus stop / rest area as a standard Civil 3D Widening to an Offset Alignment. Predefined settings can be selected.

Kerb Returns

Creates and Kerb return as an alignment or polyline, between two alignment or polylines. A list of standard Kerb Return variants is available.

Add Label Group to Feature Line

Creates a label group for a Feature line or for all Feature lines in a corridor. The function automatically sets labels at a specified range, the interval can be calculated along any alignment.
