New and improved choices of Civil 3D Style Tools can and do significantly affect our daily production work in Autodesk Civil 3D. The Framework for Civil 3D products deliver those improved results and the significant rewards that we receive when we thoughtfully employ those Style Tools in a managed Civil 3D production environment and project.
Let me repeat one of my favorite plays on words and Civil 3D notable quote-ables…
Civil 3D doesn’t require a project. Civil 3D is the project.
No surprise. It turns out that how we project our assumptions onto Autodesk Civil 3D matters. The Autodesk Civil 3D software is important, but frankly that code is not the most significant production problem we must face to profitably employ the software.
We cannot do much about that code except whine…and you should. I do.
We can do something about those aforementioned Civil 3D Style Tools - The large sets of Civil 3D content resources we employ every day to help us and Civil 3D produce the deliverable production results our work requires.
The Spot Label Style Expression Set Advanced Rewards
In the previous Civil 3D Spot Label Style AddOns Basic Rewards post and videos we focus on the Spot Label Style AddOns basic features and benefits from mostly a Site Plan deliverable perspective. We answered some basic questions about Intelligent Publish On Demand (iPOD) and the basic benefits and rewards of a new powerful set of Style Tools that we call a Label Style Expression Set.
Let me repeat myself.
Funny thing - Without a suitable collection of Label Style resources for Civil 3D, what we can actually accomplish with Civil 3D often gets lost in the daily production shuffle and the habitual way we do things now.
In more technical terms, our functional blindness can become a serious problem.
The principals and goals of every Framework Label Style Expression Set are all about delivering Intelligent Publish On Demand (iPOD) quicker to more people with less hassle.
The Spot Label Style Expression Set Overwiew
This video quickly covers what resources are in included in the Spot Label Style Expression Set.
The Civil 3D DWF Publication Reprise post and videos focus on the powers of managed DWF publication to aid in the personal and corporate development of Intelligent Publish on Demand method, practice, and the personal and corporate skill sets.
We do have to experientially learn the essential iPOD processes and tools inside Civil 3D to reap the rewards.
Let’s employ a classic Civil 3D roadway corridor model to explore some of the more advanced features and benefits of the latest Spot Label Style Expression Set.
Spot Label Style Expression Set Advanced Rewards
Honestly, we just scratched the surface of the powers of Height of Expressions and Reference Surface Expressions when coupled with dynamic variable and/or fixed truncation to solve Corridor Surface annotation challenges.
You have to like the Label Style Expression Set ability to clearly show automatic Height adjusted labels with different levels of Elevation truncation to improve readability and label identification.
Dynamic Label annotation from the Expression Set can provide almost instant access to the depth of design Corridor detail for multiple volume Surfaces.
In design time situations, we get the benefit of more immediate, consistent, and adaptive feedback.
We get the capability to deliver better QAQC data to ourselves and others when we employ Intelligent Publish on Demand methodology coupled with the speed of DWF publication.
