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

 

We must work within the current AutoCAD and Civil 3D limitations no matter what we wish for. This has been a serious Civil 3D adoption issue for way too many folks over the years.
Why doesn’t Civil 3D work like what I expect it should?

If you like, you can call my previous post a rant or a HSSPHI (How to Steal Something…

Last time we talked about the Neglected Features in Civil 3D. If we are going to learn to employ Intersections and Survey Dbs successfully for Better Information Management Execution (BIME), we are going to smash face first into the AutoCAD Civil 3D Design Control Manager- aka the Alignment. No…

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 introduces the capability of slope-controlled Offset Profile children based on their Offset Alignment parents. The new Civil 3D 2018 function also supports automatic slope transitions between regions within the Offset Profile from the new Offset Parameters tab in the Offset Profile box. People want to know…

“Do Offset Profiles work with the Superelevation…  Read more

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…

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…
