Create cross sections reversed to a stations

In most cases cross sections are consistent to a stations direction.
You can change this order e.g. in hydrology projects where a constrution work direction is reversed to a river flow direction in Autodesk Civil 3D.

You can plot your cross sections drawings in a reverse direction (from the end to the beginning).

If you prefer such a reverse direction or if it’s obligatory in your project you can make that change fast and extremely easily:

1. Choose the Array Tab from the Group Plot Style and change Plot rules,
2. Check the By columns option,

 

3. Change the Start corner to Lower Right,

 

 

Finally Autodesk Civil 3D changes automatically the cross sections order in your sheets and you can plot the cross sections drawings in the reverse order.

 

 

Using this you can simplify the documentation on the building site and make your life a little bit easier there.
