People often ask what makes the Framework for Civil 3D special and different. Everyone wants an answer that speaks to their current need. Everything depends on the state of their Civil 3D usage both personal and corporate. Yes, there are indeed corporate Civil 3D skills.
If you are a Civil 3D newbie or are starting a new civil engineering practice, you must…Read more
Civil 3D 2020 and the new Autodesk Civil 3D 2021 set forth on a much-publicized march to better forms of Design Collaboration for Civil 3D in the Cloud. Design Collaboration for Civil 3D sounds good. It Is supposed to sound good. By in large, it is good. Yet, this positive Cloud Collaboration effort makes us a little itchy in the back of our hindbrains.

At the beating heart of civil engineering model-based design is the core concept that an iteratively built model and the managed data behind that the model depends on will produce the published results we will require in the deliverables. It is vital to note and never skip over the fact that there are rules, systems, and structures necessary to…Read more
Data References (DREFs) in Autodesk Civil 3D are all about published Managed Models built inside our civil engineering and survey projects. These models effectively can help us achieve better Civil 3D production results with less hassle. We employ DREFs to share a model, or as I call it …the Civil 3D data behind, from a drawing to other drawings…Read more
It is probably fair to say that I’m often more face down in Civil 3D Object Model nuances than a lot of daily Civil 3D users. That makes sense. My personal work depends on that. I build, support and help people implement Civil 3D production environments with the best in-depth collections of Civil 3D Styles, Civil 3D Templates, and other vital Civil 3D resources available on the…Read more
