Each new project we start in Civil 3D is an opportunity that we either capitalize on or we waste the chance to make the new project better. In my experience a lot of really awesome and skilled Civil 3D folks punt like the German World Cup team.  It’s way too easy to be champions who go home early.

We All Do This

We use Civil 3D for a while. We undoubtedly now have a standard…

There are a formal sets of dualities built into AutoCAD Civil 3D. Whether we perceive or employ these model-based software pairings for our benefit is another matter altogether. Every Civil 3D user struggles with these dualities to one degree or another. Frankly, it’s even a bit difficult to talk about them in Civil 3D without being a bit confusing. You can end up sounding like…

Every once in a while a new Framework for Civil 3D customer calls and asks why we put the “- JS” at the end of all the Framework Style names. This simple suffix device serves a very significant purpose and help to answer the first most important question about using and customizing AutoCAD Civil 3D…
