Civil 3D 2020.2 Is Out!
Just a few days ago, Civil 3D 2020.2 was released by Autodesk. For this post, I do not have a lot of little features to write about. In fact, this may be one of my shortest ever regarding new features. So, with that said, this update release for Civil 3D focuses on the following two things:
- Collaboration for Civil with BIM 360
- Roadway Design Standards Update
For the first one, projects will be able to be shared and viewed up in the cloud in BIM 360. This will include workflows for Data Shortcuts as well.
For the Roadway Design Standards update, Civil 3D will now have AASHTO 2018 standards in it, where previously, the 2011 standards were the most current version.
So, like I said, that’s about it for the features, but keep in mind that there are fixes that come with this update as well.
Check out the full documentation and details for this update from Autodesk.

There are many tools and functions inside AutoCAD Civil 3D that many users have either never used or have never realized were even there! With a small learning curve, these are tools you can easily master now.
Greetings from the Infrastructure Universe! I have some really cool videos and tips for AutoCAD, Civil 3D, and more this month. There are also some recent updates from Autodesk. Read on for all of this month’s news.
We are pleased to announce a new format for our popular conference series, the BIM Workshops, based on feedback from users like you! Check out what these new changes entail.
In this blog post, I will take you through a typical workflow of some preliminary design work in roadways, grading, and underground utilities. This example workflow will show you how to take advantage of tools—like Autodesk Recap Pro, Autodesk Infraworks, and of course, AutoCAD Civil 3D—that are available to you in the AEC Collection.
Don’t panic; all the 2018 versions of software have been released! As my boss told me, “Patience, Padawon.” I was eagerly trying to download the new release, refreshing every minute last Thursday (I do this for you guys ☺). Read on for all the updates.
Each month in the Little Known CAD Commands That Rock series, I highlight some underused commands that I think have some pretty cool uses. Read on for part 6 of this series.
We’ve partnred with 3D Robotics (3DR), North America’s largest enterprise drone company, to provide building and design teams with access to Site Scan, an enterprise package designed for surveying, scanning, and inspections.
The grading tools in Civil 3D are used to design finished ground surfaces. If you’re a Civil 3D user, you should be familiar and comfortable with the tools for grading objects and corridors. If you’re not, that’s okay. James Lord, one of our Solutions Consultants, focused on grading in Civil 3D in this month’s #InfrastractureTuesday webinar.
