This chapter provides instruction to enable you to do the following: 2.1 Lines and Curves
Draw Parcels from a legal description using lines, curves or polylines, and transparent commands. 2.2 Introduction to Parcels
Create parcels from objects in the drawing or in an external reference file. Change the properties and display order of parcels to ensure that the correct linetype and color are displayed. 2.3 Creating and Editing Parcels by Layout Overview
Design a parcel layout using the various Parcel Creation tools. 2.4 Creating and Editing Parcels
Subdivide parcels into smaller lots using the Parcel Layout tools. 2.5 Renumbering Parcels
Change the parcel numbers so that they are numbered in order. 2.6 Parcel Reports
Create predefined reports to share useful engineering data about the parcels created in the drawing. 2.7 Parcel Labels
Add annotation to parcels to communicate line bearing, distances, and areas for each lot. 2.8 Parcel Tables
Change area, line, and curve labels into tags and display in a table for better readability of the drawing.

Topic: 9 Lines and Curves Objectives: 9 Use the line and curve commands
2.1 Lines and Curves
Draw Parcels from a legal description using lines, curves or polylines, and transparent commands.
9 Use the Transparent
Often, the first thing that has to be drawn up is the legal description of the property being subdivided. Designers need to enter into the computer, in the form of lines and curves, what they are given in a text description. The AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software makes this task easy with the many options under the Lines and Curves commands in the Home tab>Draw panel. You can click the expansion arrow next to lines or curves, to display a number of options that AutoCAD® software does not contain, as shown in Figure 2–1.

A second option is to use transparent commands. These are similar to Object Snaps because they can only be accessed while in another command. Once the required command has been started, you can click the Transparent tool or type an apostrophe letter combination in the Command Line for the required Transparent command. The benefit to using these to draw parcels over the Lines and Curves options shown in Figure 2–1 is that a Polyline command can be used to create one entity rather than many individual lines that would need to be joined later.
Icon Command Line ’AD ’BD Description Specifies a point location at an angle and distance from a known point and direction. Specifies a point location at a bearing and distance from a known point (or the last point occupied). Specifies a point location at an azimuth and distance from a known point (or the last point occupied). Specifies a point location at an angle and distance from a known point and previous direction. Specifies a point location using northing and easting coordinates. Specifies a point location using a grid northing and grid easting. (Note: You must have the drawing zone, coordinate system, and transformations set for grids.) Specifies a point location using latitude and longitude. (Note: You must have the drawing zone, coordinate system, and transformations set.) Specifies a point location using a point number found in the drawing or active project.
