i know the traditional way of doing this is just export to autocad then open with inroads and do grading stuff again.

 

are there any easier ways? i think it's no but boss wants to get a confirmation on the internet.

 

like grading objects to inroad grading and corridor to inroads corridor.

There is no direct way to convert C3D objects to Inroads objects/features, etc. Transfer alignments, points, surfaces via LandXML then recreate corridors, cut sections, create the gradings.

without owning InRoads, my best guess would be using landxml. But that will only transfer alignments, profiles, surfaces, and pipes to my knowledge. Maybe someone else knows better?
