What the heck is an Alignment-based Point Group? What? You’ve never had to document locations on Plan and Profile sheets? There lots of locations (points) we need to label and or symbolize relative to those Autodesk Civil 3D View Frames slapped down along an Alignment. View-based Point Styles and Point Label Styles can help a lot with the automation of our project…Read more
We continue to explore the powerful relationships between the Civil 3D Alignment and the many mission critical Design Control Manager roles in Civil 3D in this on-going series of posts we name the Book of Alignments.
There are at least a dozen design control management roles for the Alignment in Civil 3D.
A substantial number of…Read more
Does it help us to explore the end of things to discover a path to a better beginning?
Questions like this are worth consideration in the circular and iterative process world of Autodesk Civil 3D.
In this Book of Alignments series of posts, we talk about the Alignment as a Design Control Manager in Autodesk Civil 3D. There are at least a dozen management…Read more
Inside Autodesk Civil 3D there are intimate, hierarchical relationships between an Alignment, its child Profiles, child Offset Alignments, their slope-controlled Profiles, Curb Return Alignments and their Connected Alignment and Profile cousins, and Intersections. Sooner or later, we discover that…Read more
Any exhaustive discussion about the large topic of the Alignment in Autodesk Civil 3D is a serial and long-term effort. Even the familiar fundamentals of civil engineering Horizontal Control are nuanced for this one of many roles for the Civil 3D Design Control Manager. We certainly need to align our thinking with the Civil 3D functional and workflow…Read more
