We recently discussed crucial concepts and newer workflows to produce better Managed Site Grading solutions inside Autodesk Civil 3D. We employed some excellent How To videos from other Civil 3D experts to clarify how we all can couple our previous Feature Lines Only method and practice with valuable new Civil 3D Corridor skills and workflows…Read more
Lots of us in Civil 3D Land love to whine about Site Grading in Autodesk Civil 3D. Many of us still employ the classic design by breaklines methodologies from our CAD historical past to produce our production grading designs in Civil 3D. It works. These days most of us might agree that Civil 3D Feature Lines are an improvement over AutoCAD 3D polylines.…Read more
The Framework for Civil 3D features many powerful and useful Civil 3D Template, Civil 3D Style, and Civil 3D Label Style tools. The Framework happily supports multiple releases of Autodesk Civil 3D. Who knew? The Civil 3D release that floats your boat matters to you. It doesn’t really matter to us and the Framework.
It is a new year in Civil 3D Land. Civil 3D will change this year. There will be a new Autodesk Civil 3D 2024 Release. That upgrade is due to arrive during the Annual Autodesk Rite of Spring. We’ll see a new AutoCAD 2024 before then. The new software will be delivered with the usual rashers of ease-of-use goodies and promises of…Read more
How many times in Autodesk Civil 3D do we get a complex civil engineering design or survey dataset right the first time? Almost never. This reality is a most important fact about Civil 3D. To employ Civil 3D constructively in a real-world project-based production environment, we need to plan to fail forward.
What the heck does that mean?
Sounds like…Read more
