We know everything about the mechanics of Surface creation in AutoCAD Civil 3D. Don’t we?
Civil 3D works. Toss in the Points. Pump in the Breaklines. Manufacture a Boundary. Create the Data Shortcut and we’re good to go. You know. It’s the same old Cha Cha Cha.
“Bob? Did you just make us more work?”
A customer asked if I had an end to end walk-through…Read more
Service Pack 3 for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 was released by Autodesk in early June. Sorry. I’ve been kinda like the White Rabbit with the advent of Release 6.
The new SP3 for Civil 3D 2015 fixes some really annoying Export to AutoCAD (or should we say Dumb down to ACAD?) errors. There were some basic surface manipulation problems that occurred in 2015…Read more
This merry month I performed a rash of training and support for AutoCAD Civil 3D Survey and Surface creation. A recurring theme seems to be
“I know how to do this, but Civil 3D doesn’t do what I expect it to do.”
This wouldn’t be all that weird if the users were new to Civil 3D. We all know by now that AutoCAD Civil 3D isn’t your daddy’s CAD software.
In most cases…Read more
If you must employ both Autodesk and Bentley civil engineering software some more help has arrived. In late October Autodesk released the Autodesk Civil Engineering Data Translator (CEDT) to AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 subscription customers via the Autodesk Subscription Center.
Do We thank the Converts
One supposes we have one or more Autodesk State DOT customers to…Read more
Let’s face it - Surfaces play a huge role in civil engineering and survey work. When I train people in AutoCAD Civil 3D surfaces I almost always get a question that runs something like this,
Is there any way for us to see what changes we’ve made to a Civil 3D Surface?
Quality control is everyone’s problem. Both Survey and Design folks ask this. Whatever you gather in the…Read more
