Civil 3D Corridors become ever more useful for Site Design tasks. If we insist that our old school CAD perceptions of the civil engineering design issues and workflows are correct, in effect, we believe that our old AutoCAD habits and skills are more important than any new Civil 3D skills and the ever-increasing capabilities of Civil 3D itself. This is us being human. This is just…Read more
Folk complain that Civil 3D is not really user-friendly for Site Design. This is bunk. The complaint is true only if you insist that site design in Civil 3D should be like it was for years in old school CAD software. We insist our AutoCAD skills are more important than new Civil 3D skills and capabilities. About the only thing Civil 3D has in common with that old software is Civil 3D’s use of similar…Read more
Maybe you noticed that Autodesk puts some effort into improving Corridor design publication performance in the latest Civil 3D 2019.1 Update. The new enhancement capability to share Sample Line Groups as Data Shortcuts in projects comes to mind.
We can probably also agree that Civil 3D plan annotation of corridor models still needs serious work. Then again, sometimes we…Read more
There’s a burning question that concerns anyone about the latest and greatest Rehab Tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018.1. It's about time I deliver an answer or two.
“Can the new Civil 3D 2018.1 Rehab tools be employed to create Complex Corridors to perform classic intersection rehab and reconstruction projects?”
To Build a Rehab Intersection
Sooner rather than later we’ll finally get around to the use of the new Rehab Corridor Tools to do Intersection reconstruction and other similar dicey roadway rehab and reconstruction tasks in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018.1.
We released a new Subassembly AddOn for Civil 3D 2018.1 with more than few helpful Style tool adjustments. Yes. There are…Read more
