The Design State. When we employ Civil 3D Corridors for any form of design the Design State matters. What is that?
When was the last time in a Civil 3D project you only had to employ a single Assembly? Ok. Sometimes even the good get lucky. A single Assembly that works alone seems to be the exception not the rule.
Assemblies seem to run in packs…Read more
Better software tools can certainly automate a lot of the drudgery in civil engineering design and survey tasks. That’s a good thing. That is often reason enough to buy and upgrade your Civil 3D. We are waiting for the Civil 3D 2020.1 Update after all.
Our intention to increase our reported speed to results in Civil 3D can directly get in the path of better results. Speed…Read more
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…Read more
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…Read more
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
