Does it help to go to the end of things to discover how to make a better beginning?Read more
There is an intimate relationship between the Alignment, the Intersection, and the Corridor in AutoCAD Civil 3D. These are at the heart of Civil 3D world of managed relationships. Yeah. I know. Surfaces and Grading are mission critical to civil engineered projects too, but we already talked about that. The point is if you pay attention…Read more
The Civil 3D Managed Dynamic Model means that if you plan ahead carefully you can set a lot of the Data Reference connections up in advance using simple "place holder" Features and then replace the connections later with more detailed or "complete" ones later.
It Pays To Be Prepared
In other words, you can use simple Feature stuff to do the Dynamic Model building up front and then…Read more
A Managed Dynamic Model depends on systematic and managed and use of AutoCAD Civil 3D Feature centric Data References (DREFs). Technically, AutoCAD Civil 3D does not require a project connection to function. Instead is supports a more flexible and practical mechanism – association. Therefore, Civil 3D is actually more dependent on project structure, organization,…Read more
Anyone who trains and helps folks in AutoCAD Civil 3D runs into the “All in one” drawing. In this drawing the user builds the existing surface. The drawing also contains the design alignment and profile data too. Maybe they even get as far as an attempt to build a roadway rehabilitation corridor to repave that city street. Maybe at that point they realize they are stuck. How do they test options…Read more
