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

Write viewpoints from alignment/profile to an XML file that can then be imported into Navisworks with Import Viewpoints.

Curbstone Quantification

A simple tool to quantify the number of Curbstone 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.

Copy Corridor

Copy, Move or Merge corridor regions.

Create Piles

Create Piles between two surfaces. The location of the top of the piles is taken from the selected AutoCAD points. The elevation of the top ends and the bottom ends are calculated from the given surfaces.

Create Sheet Piles

Create a sheet pile along a line that can be either a 3D polyline or feature line at the top of the sheet piles. The heights of the lower end of the sheet piles are calculated from a given surface.

Create Anchors

Create rock anchors supporting the sheet pile walls. Anchors are attached to a polyline or feature line.

Extrude Along Path

Extrude a "polyline-profile" along a path (line, polyline, 3DPoly or Feature Line). The profile can also be a block. The created solid can later be updated after the profile or extrude path has been modified.

3D Measure

Insert 3D blocks at measured intervals along the length of a 3D Polyline or Feature Line.

Style by Surface

Defines/sets Profile and Section Style by each Surface.

Check Profile Tangency

Checks a profile for tangency.

Add Widening

Curb Returns

Compute Materials

Create a Quantity Takeoff Criteria for all used shape codes in a corridor. The created criteria can then be applied on Sample Lines to perform a volume calculation.

Join Alignments

Add elements from one alignment to another, including profile elements.

Feature Line to Alignment

Create alignment and profile from a feature line.

Reverse Profile

Reverse a drawn profile.

Create Profile View from Multiple Alignments

Property Palette

A comprehensive palette for managing Property Set information on any type of object. The palette can search for objects with specific values, import and export property set and property set information. Property Sets can also be applied and updated from the palette.

Create View Frame

Insert a View Frame in the drawing at the selected scale and with added Property Set.

View Frame Array

Create an array from a view frame and places match lines and match labels.

Create Sheets

Zoom Viewports to their corresponding View Frame in a View Frame file.
