We took an initial and considerate peek at some uses for Connected Alignments in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 in an earlier post. The Connected Alignment provides us with the mechanics to create manage the Curb Return interconnections of two Alignments and their Profiles. We get both horizontal and vertical control between Offset Alignments in any two intersecting Alignment…Read more
Productivity is all about our time. In AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 we get both a new DWG format and a new deeper Feature definition of Civil 3D’s powerful Design Control Manager – the Alignment.
The Civil 3D 2018 Alignment and the surrounding design paradigm definitely got an upgrade. Our exploration of the updated 2018 Alignment Feature and the new possible mechanics will certainly…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
One of the more interesting aspects of life is that the things we at first do not understand lead us directly to unexpected and new forms of often useful enlightenment. Sadly, this does not happen for everyone all the time. The current bemused ramblings of leftist political pundits comes to mind.Read more
Changing our perspective takes real work. Understandably that’s something most of us often seem to…
People do ask,
“How do I learn Civil 3D?”
Everyone who’s used any civil design software before is positive they know the fundamentals of surface builds and construction. I can just about guarantee that after you use AutoCAD Civil 3D for a while your viewpoint of that assumed truth will be rebuilt (grin). Surface design is usually not what people mean by the question.
