A blog about Civil 3D method and practice, Civil 3D Templates, Civil 3D Styles, Civil 3D Management, and Civil 3D customization

 

There is no doubt that the increased complexity of Civil 3D Point Display Resolution has been a good news and bad news problem since the initial release. In a tongue and cheek fashion I like to tell people that Autodesk lied to us from the get go. They named things in the Civil 3D Ribbons to make us believe the objects we are dealing with are something like the old school CAD objects…

AutoCAD Civil 3D can be the software surveyors love to hate. Maybe that should read hate to love? Unquestionably, Autodesk immediately messed with the established survey CAD workflows. In truth, they even messed with the core essential meanings of many familiar things like Point, Figure, and Alignment.

Historically, Autodesk also probably took way too long to sort out the…

Shall we continue to explore the interpreted nature of point data in AutoCAD Civil 3D? In the last post we talked about the Point Display Override Strategy. That’s where many civil engineers and surveyors end up after initially struggling with AutoCAD Civil 3D point display issues for a bit.

If we employ

In our previous post on Point Display in Civil 3D we talked about the fundamental interpreted nature of point data in Civil 3D. We discovered it can and usually does take a while for the practical realities of the deeper forms of point display resolution and management to sink in.
Civil 3D delivers the means to accomplish sophisticated point display resolutions.…
