Jump On Civil 3D Blog

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

 

Days before the 4th of July holiday weekend, a non-customer emailed me to ask whether it was ok for him to employ the resources structure employed in the Framework for Civil 3D for his internal company standards for Civil 3D.
