I'm a infrastructure engineer and I have heard about GC. I want to use GC to automate the process of drawing roadmarkings like pedestrian crossings, barrier surfaces, swing arrows etc.
But is GC the right program for this, or should I use something else?
If GC is the right program to use.How complicated is it to program GC to automate the process of drawing roadmarkings?
I know that Dynamo which is used in AutoCAD can automate the process of drawing roadmarkings. And it is my understanding that Dynamo og GC have similar properties?
GC is quite powerful when it comes to infrastructure. It has lots of nodes that make geometry creation and other workflows a lot easier.
Here's some example you can check
1. Generative Component (GC) to create Crash Barrier
2. Tunnels with Railtrack and Generative Components
3. Centrelines - Automation from Alignments
These are a few examples of many. I am sure you can achieve a lot as per your custom requirements.

There is a separate Node to take clip volume and to create drawings based on it.
GC is quite easy to learn and it requires comparatively lower number of nodes to achieve our requirements.
