Additional Information

Known Issues

Users of Civil 3D may encounter problems with points at the same elevation, or drastic changes of elevation (e.g., the plane of the surface changing).

In these situations, the generated surface is less accurate in these areas. Users can manually add breaklines to adjust the behavior.

High density values can cause the application to hang due to the large volume of points generated. For these situations, users should consider starting with small values to obtain initial surfaces.
