The Autodesk Civil 3D Alignment Feature altered, and continues to alter, how civil engineers and survey professionals and their organizations employ Civil 3D in production. Autodesk invests heavily in the technology surrounding the many Alignment-based tools in Civil 3D. The many capabilities and properties of the Alignment make the Alignment the core Feature in…Read more
The Framework for Civil 3D naming conventions for Assemblies and Assembly Sets help Civil 3D users make sense of their common civil engineering design Assembly solutions in their daily production work.
We’ve supplied AASHTO compliant roadway assemblies for many releases of AutoCAD Civil 3D all the way back to the 2008 release. These days we supply assemblies for most of…Read more
Certainly our Civil 3D civil engineering and survey projects share a common survey and design language: Keys (Point Keys), Codes (Figure Prefix Names), and therefore typical Survey Query logic.
The Civil 3D Survey Upside Down
We covered some of those Stranger Things last time in Civil 3D Survey Query Essentials post…Read more
Unquestionably the AutoCAD Civil 3D Alignment changes model-based software for civil engineer and survey professionals and their organizations. Autodesk invested heavily in the technology behind and refined extensively the Alignment tools in Civil 3D. The many capabilities of the Alignment make it the core feature in Civil 3D’s somewhat overwhelming arsenal.
What about Surfaces? Aren’t…Read more
The NCS Layer Standards rely on the concept and practice of a standard Pattern (Keys and delimiters) coupled with Major and Minor Keys. Every CAD Layer or Level standard employs this basic concept these days. True, we could just employ the unique numeric IDs the software’s actually use, but these aren’t very user friendly. We walked away for good human reasons.Read more
