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

 

Don’ ya know that the funny thing about all Standards is they do change. Hopefully, the change is an improvement for the better. These changes should mean we can get more work out the door with less effort. Ok. Sometimes it seems that the Loki, the Norse god of trickery, calls the standards shots.

Any incremental standards update always means getting our heads around a new form of daily…

Can your Civil 3D templates, Civil 3D Styles, and other missions critical resources for Civil 3D do that?

We…

A CAD Manager for a large civil engineering firm complained to me about the difficulty of change in his organization. That sounds familiar doesn’t it. He wants to employ the Framework. To get his firm principals to see the light is hard. He delivered this oh so quotable moment:

“I sometimes feel like I’m an Indy car mechanic who has to replace tires, not in the pit, but on the racetrack…

An update to the CAD Layer Standards for any organization is normally not an exciting prospect. We can change that. One of the principal goals of the Framework for Civil 3D is to make Civil 3D standards nuance and detail as easy as possible to pull off.

This is no small order when the everyday civil engineering and survey project works extends across a huge…
