Archie Dodge, and IMAGINiT Civil Specialist, reviews the most common reasons and methods to employ XREFs and DREFs in Civil 3D.
See the IMAGINiT YouTube Channel.

This short video covers the essentials of the reasons and methodologies for the Separation of Powers in Civil 3D.
In other words, why separate drawings for Civil 3D Features is a mission critical practice in Civil 3D.
Some great production tips on XREF clipping, Civil 3D Labels of XREFs, and other production annotation method and practice in here.

Hint: IREFs of DWFs of those completed XREFs plot and print even quicker for larger projects. Your welcome.

 

 Civil 3D Layers Best Practices

Civil 3D Layers Best Practices

7/11/2021

 

Kyle Groves, a Technical Specialist at ATG, delivers an instructional walkthrough about AutoCAD Layer functionality in Civil 3D.
From the ATG YouTube Channel.

Comments

The first 38 minutes of this video is a good instructional review of AutoCAD Layer basics and Civil 3D Layer mechanics in Civil 3D Styles and Settings.
Funny. Almost upfront Kyle states that Styles are more powerful than Layers in Civil 3D then proceeds to talk about and employ the AutoCAD Layer Manager time and time again.
It is easy to almost never employ the AutoCAD Layer Manager in the production use of Civil 3D. Say what?
For reasons unknown, Kyle dodges some really important essential tools like Layer States.

Simply put: Great Civil 3D Style Tools coupled with managed Layers States create more freedom to work better and faster in Civil 3D.
What do you know? The Framework for Civil 3D Spreadsheet tools produce Layer Standards spreadsheets that work with the CTC tools.
