The Framework for Civil 3D is all about the reduction of the many manhours spent to get Civil 3D to function as advertised in production Civil 3D project environments. The Autodesk Civil 3D software we employ every day is only as capable as the content tools we have and then must maintain. Now that’s a bit crazy.

The Framework for Civil 3D is all about the…

The work on latest Release 8 of the Framework for Civil 3D 2021 seems to me to be a bit like our never-ending California Covid lock down. There were a bunch of silly stages all with hosts of picky and well-integrated details unlike the lock down rules in the Leaden State. Hopefully, our customers will never have to ever worry about that pile of codes ever again.

I do this to contrast classic and manual Feature Line construction and manipulation methods with the advantages of managed Corridor Design methodologies that can produce multiple and controlled Feature Lines on demand. This is not a binary choice. Obviously, civil engineering folks need…

We all have things we want changed in Civil 3D. If you live and work in Civil 3D Land, you probably have more than a few Civil 3D Wish List items. I do. You do too. Some of those whines and moans are related to things Civil 3D cannot do yet. Others to the stuff Civil 3D cannot do very well from our perspective.

How we choose to work habitually matters significantly…

Managed symbol graphics in Autodesk Civil 3D can become a challenge. Not because it is particularly hard to do. This is AutoCAD 101 basics afterall.  Inside Civil 3D there is an overwhelming amount of this detailed and sometimes project specific annotative detail in modern civil engineering and survey project plan set deliverables.
