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


July always reminds me of first steps, moonwalks, and moonlight minds. This makes spatial sense. This month we appear to be on sort of an Export points from AutoCAD Civil 3D bender.
In each Export post I keep meaning to put in the following moonstep but always seem to simply run out of room. So with a savage terrier dog draped across my toes in a state of fan-cooled repose,…

The work is on the critical path of the successful delivery of our project. Best we pay attention and acquire the necessary Civil 3D skills.

We’ve been boning up and demystifying…

There are uncomfortable and unexpected truths squirrelled away in the simplest tasks in AutoCAD Civil 3D. Our CAD to model-based transition means some basic tasks are fundamentally different and seemingly more complex for no apparent reason. Yet a planned complexity can provide us with more bang for the buck and less work in the end. As I pointed out in a previous…
