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

 

Long before April Fool’s Day, I saw a classic misinformation post about AutoCAD Civil 3D and named Plot Styles. The stated implication of the post was that Civil 3D object Styles had issues with STB based publishing. Therefore, you as a Civil 3D user should avoid STB and stick with the old CTB technology born back in the dark ages of CAD and pen plotters. All I can say is,

Is There a Video?

If I say this short video will blow you mind, you’d probably have every reason to doubt that. People do say crazy stuff these…

Our goal from the get go has been to produce a resource Framework for AutoCAD Civil 3D that simplifies the grisly and time-consuming details that make customizing Civil 3D and maintaining that such a money pit for civil engineering and survey organizations. Central to that purpose are the principals of robustness, consistency,…

Old school CAD CTB thinking tends to stick in our heads. CTB think tends to force color into a state of permanency. STB on the other hand liberates how we may employ color in our workflows.Read more

They say, “Familiarity breeds Contempt.” It’s an oft studied neuroscience fact that we believe that others around us don’t get it as well as we do.
On the road to work everyone else is a bad driver.
The illusion is one of the most common failures of managers.
