Without question the best new ability in Civil 3D 2005 is the addition of Corridors. This is an "easy to use" way to create a 3D Road Model.
At the bare minimum all a user needs is an Alignment, a Profile, and an Assembly. Together these items are used to create the Corridor.
Corridors can be used to address in a few steps what used to take many in Land Desktop (LDt). The Dynamic nature of Civil 3D also allows lightning fast adjustments to data as compared to LDt.
Corridors can also be used to address design challenges that were very difficult in LDt such as Cul-de-sac's, Knuckles, and Intersections. See the image above.
