Our search for better and more intelligent deliverables from Civil 3D requires that we thoroughly understand more than a few important Civil 3D Features. Intelligent Publish on Demand demands that we possess the Civil 3D skills to employ the Features and tools in innovative ways. These two things can be mutually exclusive.Read more
To know is not necessarily the same…
AutoCAD Civil 3D alignments play a central role in the production of better deliverables in less time and with less effort. We have to think about alignments differently in Civil 3D. Autodesk certainly did.
I call the overall concept - Intelligent Publish on Demand or iPOD. The pivotal productivity role for alignments is true whether those…Read more
The concept of a Managed Dynamic Model is important in AutoCAD Civil 3D. The Civil 3D Dynamic Model (lots of civil engineering and survey data all interconnected and related to one another) is very useful and pretty cool. By now we’ve learned that the Dynamic Model can become a bit of a horror if we don’t manage it.
We all want better deliverables. We want them faster and with less cost of production. We may want and/or need our digital deliverables to go to raw AutoCAD, a GIS, or even Microstation (gasp). Can we get it those results from AutoCAD Civil 3D? Sure.

We’ve been talking about Alignments in AutoCAD Civil 3D as Design Control Manager (DCM) objects. Alignments are a bucket of buckets collector. Alignments are indeed a Management interface tool allowing us lots of access to the interfaces and tools of managed control. Certainly part of DCM functionality is Annotative what with View Frames and what not. Read more
