How can you tell when a grading model is done well in Civil 3D?

(OP)
Hi all,

I'm new to Civil 3D. When you inherit a Civil 3D grading file, what are the criteria that you would use to evaluate if the grading was done well?

Thank you!

cut cross sections

Review surface in 3D view, and/or review the surface with 0.1'/0.5' minor/major contours.

you can also use slope arrows with ranges. IE green for less than 2% (for ada checks in parking), yellow for 2-5%,etc. that will help you see if there are issues with fine grading quickly
