Layer Spreadsheet Tools for AutoCAD Update

Tags Layer Standards, layer state, spreadsheet, tools, CAD Standards, NCS, AddOn, video

There we go. We did it again. We released new Layer Standards Speadsheet Tool AddOns for all our Release 7 Framework for Civil 3D customers. Ok. The tool also technically also works for all of our Release 6 Framework products too. We simply cannot resist helping out our customers when they ask.

Layer Standards Spreadsheet Tool AddOn

Customers asked for it so we added Linetype assignments and script generation of Linetype Layer States to Release 7. You can Work with linetypes set up one way and Publish with linetypes assigned in another way with a couple of clicks. One more thing you don’t have to hassle with inside of AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Did you know? Both STB and CTB publishing standards are supported in Release 7.

You need to upgrade to Release 7. Don’t delay.
The Framework gets better and better. Release 7 is way better. This list is scary. Nah. We won’t pressure you. We don’t force you. We must persuade you with more competence. We actually make upgrades as painless as possible even for work in progress. We supply the how to upgrade documentation.

The Framework is affordable. The Framework works. Yes. It’s in there.
