One of the hallmarks of the Framework for Civil 3D is our on-going dedication to make Civil 3D easier to use and simultaneously make Civil 3D simpler to customize. This is no small task. The Framework for Civil 3D is available for multiple releases of Civil 3D and in multiple NCS Standards flavors as well.
Obviously, our hallmarks are not those tallowed Congressional earmarks…Read more
What the heck is an Alignment-based Point Group? What? You’ve never had to document locations on Plan and Profile sheets? There lots of locations (points) we need to label and or symbolize relative to those Autodesk Civil 3D View Frames slapped down along an Alignment. View-based Point Styles and Point Label Styles can help a lot with the automation of our project…Read more
Any exhaustive discussion about the large topic of the Alignment in Autodesk Civil 3D is a serial and long-term effort. Even the familiar fundamentals of civil engineering Horizontal Control are nuanced for this one of many roles for the Civil 3D Design Control Manager. We certainly need to align our thinking with the Civil 3D functional and workflow…Read more
I enjoy finding examples and folks who creatively learn to employ the Power of Not to production work in Autodesk Civil 3D. Huh? What the hay does the Power of Not mean? I trust that you do understand the difference between the Boolean logic of AND and OR in expressions. Eheh.

The autopilot works 95%+ of the time. Our brains spend a good deal of invisible time behind the scenes working on those building those structures…
