DWF-based publication is a powerful and useful publishing methodology in Autodesk Civil 3D. DWF publication is a core AutoCAD publishing functionality. It functions well in Civil 3D projects managed on local machines, networks, and document management cloud-based environments.
Civil 3D users and organizations can thankfully employ DWFs to significantly reduce the complexity…Read more
How many times in Autodesk Civil 3D do we get a complex civil engineering design or survey dataset right the first time? Almost never. This reality is a most important fact about Civil 3D. To employ Civil 3D constructively in a real-world project-based production environment, we need to plan to fail forward.
What the heck does that mean?
Sounds like…Read more
This week Autodesk released Autodesk Civil 3D Updates for Civil 3D 2022.3, Civil 3D 2021.3, and Civil 3D 2020.6. These incremental Updates bring these older Civil 3D releases into synch with some Security issues and the Toolbox Volume Report failures that happen if we uninstall Internet Explorer on workstations…Read more
Back in the day we were one of the first Autodesk Civil 3D developers to offer subscription-based pricing for our Framework for Civil 3D products.

If we employ the software for a few releases, the familiar AutoCAD and Civil 3D interface mechanics become sensical. These days Autodesk is careful not to change the core daily mechanics too quickly. That tends to make Civil 3D end users unhappy. Autodesk…Read more
