If you follow this blog, you’ve perhaps noticed that I’m not a big fan of Autodesk’s dependence on Tool Palettes to manage the complexity in the Civil 3D Assemblies that are employed in Corridor Baseline Regions. Time for an intervention? A 12-step rehab program would help. Some acts of contrition are probably in order. I know this is unlikely. Denial is a powerful thing. Are you a bit confused?…Read more
Better software tools can certainly automate a lot of the drudgery in civil engineering design and survey tasks. That’s a good thing. That is often reason enough to buy and upgrade your Civil 3D. We are waiting for the Civil 3D 2020.1 Update after all.
Our intention to increase our reported speed to results in Civil 3D can directly get in the path of better results. Speed…Read more
Once upon a time at Autodesk University I delivered a popular CAD Manager track session called People Skills. I think it is safe to say that us techy types often tend to have people and management issues. We tend to want people to behave like software or man-made objects and then they don’t and won’t.
I’m a storyteller. I don’t do standup…Read more
The Framework for Civil 3D supplies an amazingly detailed and complete set of adaptive and yet fully integrated Survey Codes, Description Key Sets, Points and Figures resolution tools to generate for Civil 3D users and organizations a more productive and much less painful Civil 3D point experience.
Many civil engineering design side people are astonished by the safe bet…Read more
The common comment I get from new Framework for Civil 3D customers is
“I wish I done this (or found you) sooner.”
That’s kind. We’re not hiding. Almost no one looks for options until the pain, for whatever reasons, comes to their attention. Even then life’s a struggle. Most of us try to fix our problems with what we have in front of us. Makes…Read more
