Autodesk released the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019.3 Update. This third, and perhaps the final, Update for Civil 3D 2019 basically includes major fixes to Data Shortcuts, the Subassembly Composer (SAC), the Traverse Editor, and many other related fix it updates for Civil 3D 2019. A detailed listing from the readme is included below.
The AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019.3 Update is available via the Autodesk Desktop App or via download from the Autodesk subscription site. As usual, the 2019.3 update install requires access to the install original Civil 3D 2019 product install resources.
MoreCompetency will release updated new Framework for Civil 3D for 2019.3 product builds for our Release 8 and Release 7 versions. These will include some additional treats to help you beat the summer heat and deliver more consistent, adaptive, and robust Civil 3D deliverables in record time.
Jump Kit customers should check the appropriate download pages for these Civil 3D 2019.3 product updates. Based on preliminary testing and review, all previous releases of Framework for Civil 3D 2019 resources appear to update without issues to 2019.3.
Faster Project Upgrades
Classic manual open and save, automated scripted updates, and the newer Batch Save Utility upgrade methods all work to update existing resources and project files into the Civil 3D 2019.3 build.
The Batch Save Utility is a faster, less resource intensive, and more managed way to update project drawings and resources when Civil 3D Updates are released. The standalone Batch Save Utility version is available to AutoCAD Civil 3D subscription customers via download from the site.
Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019.3 Update
The AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019.3 Update can be applied to AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019 and to instances of AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019 that have had the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019.1 Update or the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019.2 Update applied.
The Update requires the installation of the AutoCAD 2019.1.2 Update and will install that prerequisite if it is not present.
Autodesk Subassembly Composer 2019
The Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.3 Update also includes an updated release of Autodesk Subassembly Composer 2019.
- Installing the Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.3 Update will automatically install the updated release of Autodesk Subassembly Composer 2019.
- If Autodesk Subassembly Composer 2019 already exists on your computer, it will be automatically uninstalled prior to installing the updated release.
It is recommended to use the updated release of Autodesk Subassembly Composer 2019 with Autodesk Civil 3D 2019.3.
Civil 3D 2019.3 Update Fixes
Autodesk Subassembly Composer
- Improved performance when opening rail subassembly PKT files that use cant.
- Fixed an issue in which the superelevation of subassemblies created with the Subassembly Composer failed to be incorporated into a corridor.
- Fixed an issue that caused the outer corners of corridors to not clean up correctly where there were tangent-tangent intersections in the baseline.
- Added the ability to generate slope stake reports for data referenced corridors.
- Fixed an issue in which a data referenced corridor was not reported as being out of date after the associated data referenced alignment was deleted.
- Improved performance when synchronizing data shortcut references.
- Fixed an issue that prevented creating corridor data shortcut references.
- Fixed an issue in which data referenced alignments were created as the wrong alignment type when creating data referenced corridors that had dependent non-centerline alignments.
- Fixed an issue in which nested alignment data shortcut references appeared to be broken after data shortcuts were deleted.
- Fixed an issue in which nested data referenced alignments and corridors reported being out of date.
- Added a warning to instances when the source of a corridor data shortcut reference needs to be rebuilt.
- Fixed an issue in which pipes lost their connections to structures when synchronizing data referenced pipe networks after locking layer 0.
- Fixed an issue where in some environments, applying customization files caused Civil 3D to close unexpectedly on startup.
- Updated a zlib component to correct a vulnerability issue.
- Corrected an annotation issue along parcel segments created from alignments.
- Fixed an issue that caused alignments to be added to sites when they were imported from a LandXML file.
- Improved stability when performing a mapcheck analysis on a parcel with curved edges.
- Fixed an issue in which pipes and structures used the units specified in the pipe network feature settings instead of the units specified in the pipe and structure feature settings.
- Fixed an issue in which a pipe centerline that was referenced into a drawing using an xref was displayed using the color of the xref layer.
- Fixed an issue in which the point data in a .csv file parsed incorrectly during the point import process when the data contained user defined properties.
- Fixed an issue that caused properties specified on the Query Builder tab of the Point Group Properties dialog box to change after attaching an xref.
- Fixed a graphical issue that could occur near the cursor when creating points.
- Fixed an issue in which saving a drawing that has crossing objects in a profile view reported an error on the command line.
- Fixed a pay item formula volume calculation issue in QTO Manager.
- Fixed an issue where the volume of a volume surface shown in a surface elevation legend table did not match the volume shown in the surface properties.
- Fixed an issue where the volume of a volume surface shown in a surface elevation legend table was incorrect when the elevation analysis contained a range with a negative elevation value.
- Fixed an issue in which survey figure data imported incompletely.
- Fixed an issue where accessing survey figure properties in model space from within a locked layout viewport would cause the viewport scale to change.
- Fixed an issue in which the syntax for an angle was not accepted as a valid input format in the Traverse Editor. For example, 3..12°34'56'' would be reported as invalid.
- Fixed an issue in which an angle with a degree symbol was treated as a bearing instead of a turned angle.
- Fixed an issue in which docking or undocking the Traverse Editor would open the Unsaved Changes dialog box.
- Improved functionality of the Traverse Editor by retaining the calculated distance from point to point when saving a balanced TRV2 file.
- Improved the numerical precision in the TRV2 file to match the Traverse Editor and Drawing Settings.
- Removed trailing zeros and added numerical delimiters for clarity when displaying traverse adjustment results.
- Fixed scaling issues in the Traverse Editor user interface when using 4K displays.
- Fixed a precision issue when closure summaries were calculated using a vector from the point of closure to the last calculated point in the adjusted traverse.
- Added scale factor and rotation angle values to the report for a Grant Line adjustment.
