So I am on my third project going from start to finish using Civil 3D. My fist two project I used corridors pretty much exclusively and they went well.
I am on my third project which was more suited to being designed utilizing fetaure lines and grading objects. I have found that this project is almost unworkable because of the program crashing due to an assortment of bugs.
Feature lines were working ok until I tried to add some vertices to some of them to tighten up my triangles and this caused the program to crash all the time. I have since learned that a better way of doing this is to add vertices via supplement distances and mid-ordinate distance when I am adding the feature line as a breakline. This caused me quite a delay, and I would think that if a "add vertices" option is there it shouldn't cause the program to crash all the time.
Grading seems to be very buggy, LOTS of crashes and lots of opening the drawing to find that the grading object is no longer there...
Is anyone else experiencing this level of frustration with feature lines and grading? I know that there are sometime work around to stop it being so buggy but why should I have to try and find a work around for a part of the program that should work????
BTW I am using 2009 SP4.
