Creating quick cross sections of bioretention pond

Creating quick cross sections of bioretention pond

Creating quick cross sections of bioretention pond


When creating construction plans, drafting cross sections of the BMP seems to be one of the items that takes the longest to put together, specifically for bioretention ponds, which include a lot of hatching for each component, drawing the observation ports, geotextile fabric, under drain, etc. Not to mention the call outs for each component. Since we are not allowed to use a generic detail for BMP's, I would like to be able to create existing and proposed cross sections/profiles that would not only draw the existing/proposed grade but also include the bioretention media, mulch layer, stone layer, underdrains and whatever else they system had as if it were built into the tin. Is there a way to do this? I'm using autocad 2016 with a carlson civil suite plug in. Thanks so much!
