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
For reasons that should be obvious, I get questions all the time about configuring and implementing Civil 3D from customers both small and large. Always happy to help. To get Civil 3D to run is sort of built into the automated Autodesk install. How those install defaults allow the software work are probably not exactly what most people want to employ in a real Civil 3D production environment. You…Read more
Autodesk recently released the usual Earth, Water, and the other Interop extensions for Autodesk Civil 3D 2020. Can we say the usual suspects? I guess Wind and Fire might not be Autodesk classified as civil extensions. Funny, we have both wind farm and LNG farm Framework for Civil 3D customers performing both survey and civil engineering project work all over the…Read more
One of my long-standing Civil 3D wish list items is a basic form of elementary Audit functionality. I acknowledge that even the concept of some form of audit in Civil 3D is unlikely to reach high into an everyday Civil 3D user’s wish list for obvious reasons. We all get it.

The Framework for Civil 3D is a standard to build your standards from. The Framework is all about the Adaptive Systems Management of Civil 3D. Why is adaptive systems management important? Lacking a systems approach to CAD Standards in Civil 3D, we are confined to standards ruled only by the immediacy of preference.
Don’t get me wrong. Preference and choice…Read more
