Not so long ago I did a post and video called Civil 3D Survey Got Better. That included a brief section that employed the concept and use of a standard Survey Queries to optimize survey production tasks in Civil 3D. The goal there was to construct a quick and dynamic surface from nascent and unedited figures.
Editable Digital Deliverable production for other CAD apps from AutoCAD Civil 3D is less of a pain today than in the past. However, it’s sad to say that all is not as it should be in Civil 3D Land. I suppose whether you believe the current behavior of the menu pick Export command (EXPORTC3DDRAWING) is buggy or a benefit depends on how you do things and what you are dealing with.…Read more
I’m an avid proponent of the use of AutoCAD Civil 3D Survey Dbs. If I need to track and annotate location in its many forms, I use them. We have multiple in-depth video series our Members can watch and learn about how to do that in your own projects. Productive stuff like how to get Survey data related to Alignments.
I’ve said before our old…Read more
Autodesk first introduced Survey Queries in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013. They improved them some in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 by adding export and import functionality. These days you can employ standardized Survey Queries shared among multiple Survey Dbs.
Me, I’m admittedly a long-time Data Geek. Because I am that I’ve become a CAD, BIM, and…Read more
