That means you can produce project work in one official and compliant Layer Standard - maybe the NCS 6.0 and still produce deliverables in perhaps another Layer Standard like the NCS 6.0 AIA standard.Read more
Sounds crazy… We know.
It’s all about the hidden potential…
The Reference Template Tool in Civil 3D 2018+ employs a new and different approach to the consistent delivery of known good Style resources. The tool allows us to assemble targets, partially manage them, and deliver Style collection resources (targets) by reference.
Use of the Reference Template Tool increases initial drawing open time but…Read more
The Classic Template Style Collection Methods are the most common template maintenance methodologies used to produce a target of collected Style resources. Many people consider a Civil 3D Template target to be their known good and their Style management end goal. This perspective produces some unrealistic expectations.
Style Import and the practice of Civil 3D Style Maintenance and Improvement requires the examination of the tools inside the software and the multiple methods we can employ together to assemble and validate Style collections into well-integrated Civil 3D template targets. We want to know how to combine and improve collected Style Tools to create Civil 3D user production and/or publication…Read more
