It’s a new month, a change of season, and for some the apparent loss of reason. Time to transform from the Bake to the Freeze in my part of Civil 3D Land.
Sir? Bake and Freeze? Aren’t those drinking games?
Nah. It’s just my calendar reciting the same old cyclical tale. There’s proof in the lunar or lunatic details or lack thereof.
Some do howl at the moon because Civil…Read more
We shouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel to employ Civil 3D point data successfully. After more than ten releases of Civil 3D that would be dumb. The Pareto Principal, that famous 80 20 Rule, applies to our civil engineering and survey data. I argue, and most civil and survey folk would agree, that 20% of what we gather and create drives a large part of our project…Read more
We all know about bad assumptions. You believe something is totally obvious. You proceed to talk about a subject that way. People in the crowd nod their heads in affirmation.

There is no doubt that the increased complexity of Civil 3D Point Display Resolution has been a good news and bad news problem since the initial release. In a tongue and cheek fashion I like to tell people that Autodesk lied to us from the get go. They named things in the Civil 3D Ribbons to make us believe the objects we are dealing with are something like the old school CAD objects…Read more
