Lots of people in Civil 3D Land are truly committed to Feature Line based grading design in Autodesk Civil 3D. Nothing is wrong with that. The Grading Design by Feature Line Heuristic is well understood and employed by most civil engineering and survey professionals. Civil 3D is loaded with useful practical Ribbon tools to help us get ‘er done.…

Our daily production work in Autodesk Civil 3D is all about what changes today in our current Civil 3D project. Let me put it this way…
“Civil 3D is all about the Project, Baby.”

We work in individual Civil 3D working drawings all the time. It is way too easy to lose sight of the shared-data, project-based perspective that is mission critical to our…
