A blog about Civil 3D method and practice, Civil 3D Templates, Civil 3D Styles, Civil 3D Management, and Civil 3D customization

 

Folks who follow this blog and check out or employ the Framework for Civil 3D, quickly recognize that I am a strong advocate for the employment of Survey tools in their Civil 3D production process. No doubt this can be a significant challenge. There are a lot of moving parts and resources to develop in well-built and effective Survey in Civil 3D processes. These days in Civil 3D…

An update to the CAD Layer Standards for any organization is normally not an exciting prospect. We can change that. One of the principal goals of the Framework for Civil 3D is to make Civil 3D standards nuance and detail as easy as possible to pull off.

This is no small order when the everyday civil engineering and survey project works extends across a huge…
