The art of production and publication Civil 3D Standards is all about the construction and maintenance of managed, known, and current States. There is no singularity in Civil 3D Standards although such standards can feel like a time-sucking, black hole. After all, we are talking about sets of collections of variable properties.…Read more
Are we are talking about the latest software changes and improvements to Civil 3D? There is a recent Autodesk Civil 3D 2023.2.2 Update that includes some useful performance improvements and better Autodesk Cloud behaviors with the Autodesk Desktop Connector 126.96.36.1992 Update. Today we are not here to discuss that type of feature.
We are here to talk about…Read more
Intentionally, I employ the US Constitution’s analogy of the Separation of Powers to talk about how civil engineers and surveyors need to systematically manage to divide and conquer resources inside and outside Civil 3D. The perspective allows us to employ the software successfully in production.
The Principals of Separation are, as they say, self-evident. The practical…Read more
The Reference Template Tool in Civil 3D employs provides us a different approach to the consistent delivery of effective, production Civil 3D Templates and Known Good Style collection resources. The Reference Template (TREF) Tool allows us to assemble Civil 3D resource targets, partially manage them, and deliver standardized resource…Read more
The practice of Civil 3D Style Maintenance and Improvement and Style Import requires the examination of the tools inside the software and the multiple methods we can employ together to assemble and validate Style Collections into well-integrated Civil 3D Template Targets. We want to know how to combine and improve collected Style Tools to create…Read more
