A blog about Civil 3D method and practice, Civil 3D Templates, Civil 3D Styles, Civil 3D Management, and Civil 3D customization

 

Maybe you noticed? There is a big difference between your Civil 3D model building drawings and your Civil 3D publication drawings. Are there are some other types and stages of Civil 3D drawings in between these two? Civil 3D Drawings have states or even phases. If we have phases in projects, then our critical path will probably include drawings that change type…

Maybe you noticed that most of the Standard Styles don’t do that or maybe just barely. I argued from the get-go that Civil 3D Styles sooner or later become a content commodity. Civil 3D Styles should…

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?…

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…
