Import/Export

  • The stability of the Export Autodesk Civil 3D Drawing command has been improved.
  • An issue where some drawing entities are not exported when using the Export Autodesk Civil 3D Drawing command has been resolved.
  • An issue where the Export Autodesk Civil 3D Drawing command does not explode external references despite the Bind, insert and explode command being enabled has been resolved.
  • An issue that caused an unexpected error when opening a drawing that was exported using the Export Autodesk Civil 3D Drawing command has been resolved.
  • When opening a drawing that was exported using the Export Autodesk Civil 3D Drawing command in Autodesk AutoCAD, a proxy state dialog box is no longer generated.
  • An "Export feature lines as" option has been added to the Export Autodesk Civil 3D Drawing command.
  • An issue where a background mask was displayed as a bowtie after exporting a drawing using the Export Autodesk Civil 3D Drawing command has been resolved.

General

  • An issue where clicking on the more information column header in Event Viewer causes an unexpected error has been resolved.
  • Several updates have been made to correct untranslated dialog box messages and command line warnings.

Interoperability

  • An issue with the availability of the "Get Location from Survey Point" command in Autodesk Revit 2019.1 has been resolved.

Labels

  • An issue where deleting a component from a parent label style resulted in the deletion of all components in the child label styles has been resolved.

LandXML Import/Export

  • Stability when importing a LandXML file has been improved.

Pipe Networks

  • When extending a pipe using the arrow grip, the slope of the pipe is now maintained as expected.
  • An issue was resolved where creating a Pipe Network from a 2D polyline resulted in a sloped pipe due to the Pipe Network start elevation being above the source object elevation.
  • An issue that caused pipe network structures to scale incorrectly when setting Pipe Network Structures style to "Fixed Scale from Part Size" has been resolved.
  • An issue that caused unexpected behavior with null structures listed in the Parts List has been resolved.
  • An issue where a 90 degree fitting was being placed when creating a pressure network from objects regardless of the angle pipe actual orientation has been resolved.

Rail

  • An issue that prevented a platform edge from being used as a corridor target has been resolved.

Referenced Templates

  • Stability when removing templates from the Attached Referenced Template list has been improved.
  • An issue has been resolved where section label sets with a corridor point style from a referenced template are not included in the drawings label sets.

Shared Views

  • When viewing an object's properties in Autodesk Viewer, lines of text no longer overlap.
  • An issue where properties displayed in Autodesk Viewer were different from the properties in the drawing has been resolved.

Surfaces

  • The "Create surface from point cloud" command is now available in the point cloud context tab.
  • An issue where the smooth surface command causes an unexpected error has been resolved.

Traverse Editor

  • An issue with the dynamic display of some commands has been resolved.

Autodesk Vault

  • The performance when viewing projects in Autodesk Vault has been improved.
  • Performance when saving large drawings to Autodesk Vault has been improved.

Known Issue

  • In some cases, a corridor may not update as expected after importing a LandXML file containing an alignment.

Interoperability

Interoperability between Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.2 and Autodesk Civil 3D 2019, Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.1, or AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018:

Crossing Objects in Profile View

Opening an Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.2 drawing in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019, Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.1, or AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018

  • Crossing objects in profile view and their labels will be displayed as proxy graphics in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019, Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.1, or AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018.
    If you make changes to the source objects in a prior version of the application and then save and reopen the drawing in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.2, the crossing objects and their labels will be updated in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.2.

Rail Platform Edges

Opening an Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.2 drawing in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019, Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.1, or AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018

 

  • Rail platform edge feature lines can be viewed in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019, Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.1, or AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018.
  • If you make changes to the non-geometric properties of the rail platform edge feature line or the dynamically-linked alignment in a prior version of the application (such as editing the properties or the style), the dynamic links between the feature line and the alignment are preserved when you save the drawing and re-open it in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.2.
  • If you make changes to the geometry of the rail platform edge feature line in a prior version of the application, and then save the drawing and reopen it in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.2, the dynamic links between the feature line and the alignment will be removed and a message will be displayed on the feature line that it is out of date.
  • To update the feature line, run the Edit Platform Edge command, select the feature line, and click OK in the Edit Platform Edge dialog box.
  • If you make changes to the geometry of the dynamically-linked alignment in a prior version of the application, the platform edge feature line will not be updated. If you save the drawing and reopen it in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.2, the dynamic links between the feature line and the alignment will be removed and a message will be displayed on the feature line that it is out of date.
  • To update the feature line, run the Edit Platform Edge command, select the feature line, and click OK in the Edit Platform Edge dialog box.
