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

 

We examined in detail how we can take advantage of Civil 3D’s arcane methods of interpreting and resolving point data in a multiple post series on point display resolutions in AutoCAD Civil 3D. The topic of NOT Keys kept coming up. A couple of folks asked the basic question,

“What is a NOT Key?”

It might be a better question…

Shall we continue to explore the interpreted nature of point data in AutoCAD Civil 3D? In the last post we talked about the Point Display Override Strategy. That’s where many civil engineers and surveyors end up after initially struggling with AutoCAD Civil 3D point display issues for a bit.

If we employ

In our previous post on Point Display in Civil 3D we talked about the fundamental interpreted nature of point data in Civil 3D. We discovered it can and usually does take a while for the practical realities of the deeper forms of point display resolution and management to sink in.
Civil 3D delivers the means to accomplish sophisticated point display resolutions.…

One of the Autodesk memes about AutoCAD Civil 3D is there are always a bunch of ways to get anything done. Variety is the spice of life. AutoCAD Civil 3D Point display is no exception. These varied methods to get to Point display resolutions are powerful. They can be overwhelming. That point may cause us disquiet or dismay. We can keep things the same and make ourselves more work or change our way…

Are Points are one of those “I love to hate them” beasties in AutoCAD Civil 3D? I say it often and loudly that the performance of Civil 3D COGO points sucks. Best to employ them thoughtfully. On the other hand, Civil 3D Survey points can rock your socks off. There are a whole bunch of videos that show that here.

Does it appear in Civil…
