One of the Autodesk memes about AutoCAD Civil 3D is there are always a bunch of ways to get anything done. Variety is the spice of life. AutoCAD Civil 3D Point display is no exception. These varied methods to get to Point display resolutions are powerful. They can be overwhelming. That point may cause us disquiet or dismay. We can keep things the same and make ourselves more work or change our way…

Are Points are one of those “I love to hate them” beasties in AutoCAD Civil 3D? I say it often and loudly that the performance of Civil 3D COGO points sucks. Best to employ them thoughtfully. On the other hand, Civil 3D Survey points can rock your socks off. There are a whole bunch of videos that show that here.

Does it appear in Civil…

A recent Framework for Civil 3D customer posed a fascinating question this week.

“You’re the Civil 3D wizard.
What are a couple of things that Civil 3D does that people completely miss?”

Perhaps flattery works.

A Sweaty Summer School for Civil 3D

Here’s a written summary of my more than you ever wanted to know answer…

AutoCAD Civil 3D is stuffed like a platter of Football Playoff Day nachos with an overwhelming number of ways and tools to manipulate our civil engineering and survey data. I’ve said it before. In Civil 3D it pays to ask the question:

“What Do You Watch?
It’s All About that Data Behind.”

Happy New Year! Get that mojo workin’. To get more from what we have we must think outside…

The Framework for AutoCAD Civil 3D includes an entire rasher of fully-integrated Point Group resources. A couple of thousand Survey Codes that work in the real world surely help too. This is evolutionary innovation.
If you employ Civil 3D Survey to produce production deliverables, you need these. Sadly it seems this has been a challenge for many folks in Civil 3D Land. Civil…
