Our preference of graphic symbols/blocks may become problematic in our Civil 3D customization. Managed systematically blocks can make your Civil 3D Standards more flexible and adaptive. These simple AutoCAD things can have a significant impact in our project work. Case in point - If I change all the block representations in a project drawing by refining the blocks, your all too familiar work can…Read more
The end-of-year week always seems to be chock full of work. I do try to tie up all the loose ends and miscellaneous fixes for our products and for clients to start the next year with a higher level of better.
A powerful and complete set of tools and resources like the Framework for Civil 3D contains lots of detail and nuance. All of that detail is required to deliver on…Read more

The Civil 3D Subassembly Composer allows us to construct our own customized Subassemblies for use in our Corridor Assemblies. Autodesk has released a number of really useful PKT files over the last few releases of Civil 3D. Sadly, some folks don’t bother to test and employ them. Others do.Read more
Last time we explored some basic iPOD (Intelligent Publish on Demand) workflow mechanics to help us deal with the annotation of Corridor models. We previewed that in a video to show the Civil 3D mechanics of how we can create Corridor Station…Read more
