Surfaces and Earthworks

Hi all,

I will be working on a unique project.  It a museum that is underground.  The entrance is at grade.  It will kind of be like entering a cave.  How do I make a surface for something like that?  We will need earthworks also.  I guess my proposed surface would be the ground floor of the building but not sure how to Civil3D the ceiling for earthworks.


Any thoughts?

Civil 3D will not model a tunnel. You would need to create a surface for the ceiling and a separate surface for the floor. Beware of vertical or overhanging faces as Civil 3D does not support that functionality.
