In Civil 3D Land we hear this compliant all too often. I believe that it is safe to say that I have a healthy respect for the complexity of AutoCAD Civil 3D. Needless to say the Framework for Civil 3D is deep, detailed, and robust because all of that is required. This is a good capability thing in the end, but bad training news in the beginning.Read more

“What do I need to know about Alignments in AutoCAD Civil 3D?”
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…”
“Whoa. How about the short version?”
Thus is created The Civil 3D Book of Alignments.Read more
Sorry. Yes, the title has to be plural. To make Alignments singular would be puerile and tangential.
AutoCAD Civil 3D alignments play a central role in the production of better deliverables in less time and with less effort. We have to think about alignments differently in Civil 3D. Autodesk certainly did.
I call the overall concept - Intelligent Publish on Demand or iPOD. The pivotal productivity role for alignments is true whether those…Read more
Alignments in AutoCAD Civil 3D do have types. So? No biggie. If you get this wrong when you create the Alignment, you can change this? Errr. Well sort of and it depends. Remember an Alignment is a collector of Properties. Different types of Alignments have different properties. As I said last post we might think of Alignment types as “purposes”,…Read more
Unquestionably the AutoCAD Civil 3D Alignment changes model-based software for civil engineer and survey professionals and their organizations. Autodesk invested heavily in the technology behind and refined extensively the Alignment tools in Civil 3D. The many capabilities of the Alignment make it the core feature in Civil 3D’s somewhat overwhelming arsenal.
What about Surfaces? Aren’t…Read more
