Tags Civil 3D 2021, Update, Upgrade, Jump Kit, Templates Only, AddOn, Expression Set, pressure pipe network

Autodesk released a bunch of new Autodesk Infrastructure product Updates, Extensions, and tools over the last 60 days most in advance or around the virtual AU 2020 event. These included the Autodesk Civil 3D 2021.2 Update. Remember to be on the lookout for promised Autodesk Construction Cloud integration products promised to be released later this month.

The Framework for Civil 3D Release 8 existing 2021.1 builds ran fine in this Civil 3D 2021 Update. We identified a few fixes and some important issues that we could improve for the Framework for Civil 3D 2021.2.

Framework for Civil 3D Label Style Expression Set AddOns

We recently released the first of many Label Style Expression Set AddOns for Civil 3D Surface Contours.
See the Civil 3D Contour Labels Unleashed post for overview videos.
See the Civil 3D Contour Label Style AddOns Released post for more details.

Framework for Civil 3D 2021.2 Products

We can and do make Civil 3D Upgrades and Updates easier.
See the Batch Save and Those Painless Civil 3D Upgrades post.

The new Framework for Civil 3D 2021.2 products officially hit the street this week.
The latest Jump Kit Release 8 for Civil 3D 2021.2 Updates have support for the latest Civil 3D tools and features in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2021.2 Update.
These include support that integrates well with the new Project Explorer for Civil 3D product.

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

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

We call that…

The Innovation Beyond the Code

We all appreciate code that enables and saves us from tedious work. Code alone is not enough. Skilled people and viable content tools work together. Content like the Framework for Civil 3D allows the code to produce acceptable and/or exceptional results for every Civil 3D user.

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 all civil engineers and survey professionals get paid for.

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

Framework for Civil 3D 2021.2 Update

The new Framework for Civil 3D 2021.2 Update products are now available in two flavors for Framework Release 8. Both Release 8 flavors are now available for the latest Update release of Autodesk Civil 3D 2021.2.
