The best kind of Christmas presents are the things that bring both joy to your life and to your daily work. When you can deliver that blessing to your friends, customers, and even people you don’t know, that can be a wonderful thing. Nothing is comparable to the Good News - the reason for the season. Some smaller things can be great news too. You catch the drift.

A lot of people started off their custom Civil 3D Style and Civil 3D Template development adventure from the somewhat dubiously named Autodesk example Civil 3D ncs templates. Historically and technically, the layer key system employed in these examples was never NCS compliant in the first place. The Autodesk template examples certainly are far from being compliant with the latest NCS 6.0 Standards for an entire host of reasons.

The Framework for Civil 3D does better than that.

The AIA’s version of the NCS is designed for utility systems inside large building projects. It is and was not targeted at local, city, county, or regional infrastructure utility systems. Hence some folks in Civil 3D Land prefer to employ the Layer key system employed in the Framework for Civil 3D or one of the other supplied NCS variants that we include.

Even in large building projects, the use of the Open Civil Layer Keys does reduce the civil and survey to architectural discipline confusion.

Lots of other folks don’t care about the nuance.
Some people fancy the familiar for obvious and important reasons.

A New Flavor of the Framework for Civil 3D

Based on customer requests, we’ve released a new set of Style Tool resources for the Framework for Civil 3D products that by default employ the AIA large project key system for the AIA utilities many people are familiar with. If you employ any flavor of the Framework for Civil 3D Release 8 you get all of our famous Adaptive Layer Standards and tools in Jump Kit.

Yes. We even include DOD, GSA, AIA NCS compliant Layer resources for all the many official NCS Disciplines with the Framework for Civil 3D Adaptive Layer Standards.

Today it’s even easier than ever to integrate your Map 3D, Revit, Revit Structural, and Plant 3D layered output to AutoCAD dwg and/or DGN with the supplied Layer Standards resources included in the Framework for Civil 3D.

The Civil 3D Business Challenge

We must address the need to find a better path to systematically manage the customization, collaboration, and interoperability of Civil 3D.

The Framework for Civil 3D is designed, built, and continuously improved primarily to address these ever-present, mission critical, and often expensive issues.

Release 8 AIA Framework for Civil 3D 2020.2

The latest Release 8 AIA of the Framework for Civil 3D 2020.2 delivers better production to civil engineers and surveyors from Autodesk Civil 3D 2020.2. The supplied Civil 3D Style tools and other supplied resources will even work earlier releases of Civil 3D.

The Framework for Civil 3D is an Adaptive Managed System for all the many resources required to create and maintain a Civil 3D production environment. The new Release 8 AIA Framework for Civil 3D is flexible, consistent, and robust.

The Framework for Civil 3D 2020 Release 8 AIA products include all resources delivered in the NCS AIA large building project layer system.
