It is a cyclical thing…Maybe an Advent of Spring thing. The partners are companies and organizations that we will have to: collaborate with; work with on new projects; and basically, learn…Read more
We’ve discussed the topic of Data References (DREF) in Autodesk Civil 3D and the important Object Model challenges we simply have to deal with in our Civil 3D projects. This DREF chatter spawns a bunch of questions about Civil 3D Surfaces, Surface DREFs, and how to make them work better and faster. The existing and design surface discussion takes a few words and…Read more
Whether or not you choose to employ Civil 3D Styleless Data References in your projects is a business decision that deserves careful consideration. There are Civil 3D technical, stability, and project performance reasons to take the time to do so. The NoStyles workflow mechanics are mindlessly simple to execute for the most part. The man-hour investment to perform…Read more
There are some interesting and recurring questions that are worth thinking about regarding the content of Civil 3D Data Reference (DREF) containers and project stability and performance in Civil 3D.
You should employ, No Styles templates for DREF containers.Read more
These are drawings that only contain Standard Styles built only by the Civil 3D virus/code.…
Maybe you noticed? There is a big difference between your Civil 3D model building drawings and your Civil 3D publication drawings. Are there are some other types and stages of Civil 3D drawings in between these two? Civil 3D Drawings have states or even phases. If we have phases in projects, then our critical path will probably include drawings that change type…Read more
