We will wrap up the calendar year 2022 and unwrap a collection of the Top 5 Best Civil 3D Production Tips? Why not. Everyone loves a top five list. I use the production word here not the productivity one even though both do apply in this context.
This post may have a Civil 3D management and implementation bias over a classic set…Read more
Are we are talking about the latest software changes and improvements to Civil 3D? There is a recent Autodesk Civil 3D 2023.2.2 Update that includes some useful performance improvements and better Autodesk Cloud behaviors with the Autodesk Desktop Connector 184.108.40.2062 Update. Today we are not here to discuss that type of feature.
We are here to talk about…Read more
How many times in Autodesk Civil 3D do we get a complex civil engineering design or survey dataset right the first time? Almost never. This reality is a most important fact about Civil 3D. To employ Civil 3D constructively in a real-world project-based production environment, we need to plan to fail forward.
What the heck does that mean?
Sounds like…Read more
Many, if not most, of our Civil 3D Projects will involve multiple forms of Reference Replacement. Many of us employ the classic External References (XREF) basemap strategy in our plan set publication.
There are two common scenarios here. The Survey dept must update the existing annotation for the proposed project’s Parcel map. Survey can…Read more
Autodesk continues to improve and change Civil 3D behaviors from one Civil 3D Update to another and from one Civil 3D Release Upgrade to another. Out here in Civil 3D Land we must learn to adapt to those changes or continue to perform our civil engineering and survey work in older versions of the software. Most folks tend to.
Are we proactive…Read more
