Out here in Civil 3D Land we do civil engineering and survey work. That means that grading and Civil 3D Surfaces play a significant part of our daily workflows. Thankfully, Autodesk has been working hard on improved Civil 3D performance. How we structure our Civil 3D Projects and how we perform some basic Civil 3D Project maintenance work can matter.
Autodesk recently released an Update for Civil 3D 2024. The Autodesk Civil 3D 2024.3 Update includes new workflow Enhancements and performance upgrades for Corridor workflows and a significant list of performance improvements and fixes to the Civil 3D code.
The Corridor workflow improvements include the ability to select multiple Alignment/Profile pairs…Read more
Let’s have a Happy New Year with Civil 3D. Should we wrap up the calendar year 2023 and unwrap a collection of the Top Ten Civil 3D Production Tips? Why not. Everyone loves a top ten list. I used the production word here not the productivity one even though both do apply in this context.
This post has a decided Civil 3D management and implementation bias…Read more
We all occasionally hear the refrain or claim: “Our projects in Civil 3D are too small to make Data References (DREFs) and Data Shortcuts worth the effort. We manage to get most of our work done in one drawing.”
We can work this way in Autodesk Civil 3D.Read more
Folks do successfully work without DREFs every day in Civil 3D Land.
Like it or…
Most of us who employ Autodesk Civil 3D in production environments are familiar with the mechanics to replace External References (XREF) in our working and/or publication drawings. The Survey dept updates the existing annotation for the proposed project’s Parcel map. Survey may overwrite the previously shared XREF drawing. They may provide a separate and differently…Read more
