Civil 3D Figures happen to be a most excellent adventure in how the simple is sophisticated. This post resolves to save surveyors and civil engineers man-hours in ways you do not expect.
CAD people tend to trust in the picture. AutoCAD Civil 3D does not. We can create Civil 3D Features from CAD primitives (yes even non-ACAD ones). We can explode and export from Civil 3D Features and get…Read more
Far be it for me to instruct surveyors and civil engineers about the vagaries of properties recorded and found. That would be like instructing my childhood chicken farmer neighbor on the art of sucking eggs. Speaking of fertile eggs and chicken farming, I still have one question,
Am I planting them too deep or too far apart?
There are classic CAD means; methods in…Read more
AutoCAD Civil 3D started out to establish a new civil engineering design paradigm. Get the model and the data right. For practical purposes that right means - suitable. From that suitable model we may automatically publish what we need to deliver in many forms.
This is the first installment in a multi-post review of key Civil 3D Tools. A primer on the mission critical capabilities and tools…Read more
The Framework for Civil 3D allows you to employ AutoCAD Civil 3D in multiple releases right out of the box. Still everyone has to learn how to do that. As much as we might wish for magic buttons there are none. This is the common human dilemma.
Productive solutions require good software, consistent and robust resources, and these must be coupled into working civil…Read more
