Let’s have a Happy New Year with Civil 3D. Should we wrap up the calendar year 2023 and unwrap a collection of the Top Ten Civil 3D Production Tips? Why not. Everyone loves a top ten list. I used the production word here not the productivity one even though both do apply in this context.
This post has a decided Civil 3D management and implementation bias…Read more
There are many things that make all kinds of sense in Autodesk Civil 3D 2023. Maybe you noticed? Some other things – not so much. If we employ the software for a few releases, the familiar AutoCAD and Civil 3D interface mechanics become sensical. These days Autodesk is careful not to change the core daily mechanics too quickly. That tends to make Civil 3D end users unhappy. Autodesk…Read more
Late last week Autodesk released the Autodesk Civil 3D 2023.1 Update. The Civil 3D 2023.1 Update states that the update is primarily focused on enhancements to the integration of Civil 3D, Autodesk Docs, and Collaboration for Civil 3D.
If we want to work or work in Civil 3D in the Autodesk Clouds, the Update 1 for Civil…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
Autodesk Civil 3D is a virtual feast of fundamental capabilities for civil engineers and surveyors. We can easily debate whether the resultant Civil 3D complexity is the result of the considerable depth of function built into the software or whether the sheer number of potential Civil 3D workflows is an obstacle to users all by itself.
We could also argue that such attention is unwarranted.…Read more
