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
Here is something serious to consider or maybe that is something to consider seriously? Here’s an intriguing notion about Civil 3D Templates, Civil 3D Styles, and other Civil 3D resources development concerns what we might want to call The Is It Worth it in Civil 3D Paradox.
One side of the Civil 3D development coin says…Read more
Alignments in Autodesk Civil 3D have Types. Whoopie. No Biggie. If we get the Type wrong when we create the Alignment, we can change the Type? Errr. Well sort of and it depends. This is Civil 3D. Some Civil 3D Feature Properties and Parent and Child relationship properties only can be built on creation. Some may be destroyed by a manual change of Alignment Type.

NOT is the third chord (the…Read more
Here is an important fact that may surprise you: Most of our civil engineering and survey customers already had their own set of Civil 3D Templates and Civil 3D Styles when they purchased the Framework for Autodesk Civil 3D. These folks recognize the simple fact that reinventing and maintaining the Civil 3D torture wheel is a significant waste of…Read more
