The Civil 3D 2021 Release 8 Framework Products

Tags Civil 3D 2021, Jump Kit, Templates Only, Upgrade, Update, NCS 6.0, AIA, Quux Software

The new Framework for Civil 3D 2021 products officially hit the street today. Hooray! The latest Jump Kit Release 8 for Civil 3D 2021 includes huge new libraries of well-crafted, integrated, and managed Civil 3D content resources. Why do that? That does not seem to be the most important question today.

The daily, practical Civil 3D working project issues for many civil engineers and surveyors is this - What can you accomplish with those content tool resources once you have them?

The increased Freedom to Work in Civil 3D is the fundamental goal behind all the Framework for Civil 3D products.

I like to call it…

The Innovation Beyond the Code

We all appreciate good code that enables and saves us from tedious work. Code alone is not enough. Skilled people and viable content tools work together and allow the code to produce acceptable and/or exceptional results.

Great content tool resources for Civil 3D do matter. The creation, edit, and maintenance of all that not-so-silly stuff is what steals our days and gets in the way of better data gathering, analysis, design optimization, and the professional deliverable results we all get paid for.

“Engineers and Surveyors need to perform their professional work, not customize software"

Tools Make the Work
Better Tools Make the Work Easier

The new Framework for Civil 3D 2021 products are now available in two flavors for Framework Release 8. Both flavors are now available for the latest Update release of Autodesk Civil 3D 2021.

Jump Kit 8 2020 customers who purchased the Jump Kit Release 8 2020 product between April 15, 2020 and Jun 25, 2020 may now download the latest new Framework for Civil 3D 2021 Jump Kit Release 8 product from the respective product download pages.

Many Release 8 2021 improvements also support Jump Kit 8 2020 via the recently released free Release 8 Keys and Figures AddOn from the respective product download pages.

The new supplied Description Key Set XML resources require the use of the free downloadable Quux Software Description Key Set Import and Export Tools.
A hearty thank you to Quux Software for their code support, help, and attention to detail.

Consider this a much-warranted shout out for the Quux Software SINCPAC software tools. Many Framework customers employ and recommend the SINCPAC tools.
