[Known Issue] Civil 3D Performance Degradation
Some Civil 3D users have been experiencing major performance degradation issues causing files to take 5 minutes or more to open. Users that have noticed this issue have reported that plotting is slow and the Purge command is taking up to a minute for the dialog box to open and sometimes an hour for the purge itself to complete.
Autodesk has published a solution for this issue on the Autodesk Knowledge Network. Anecdotally, some users who were dealing with performance degradation issues in Civil 3D have experienced up to 80% improvement after following the update instructions. It’s important to note that not all Civil 3D users are experiencing problems.

In Civil 3D, styles “control the appearance of drawing objects, labels, and tables.” In this video, I lay out 4 common questions about developing styles in Civil 3D that I’ll address at the April 3rd Infrastructure Tuesday webinar.
Autodesk 2017 is here and with it comes many new features and tools for infrastructure professionals. The infrastructure industry is growing and changing rapidly; discover what these changes mean for you.
You’ve heard it, seen it, and probably have even flown one: drones are all the buzz now in the building and construction industries. Commercial drones are poised to be an efficient solution to one of the industry’s most challenging issues: waste.
Even though LiDAR has been around for decades, it’s not uncommon to encounter firms that aren’t using point clouds at all, especially in civil infrastructure design and construction. In the August Infrastructure Tuesday webinar, Nick Harper dove into some of the key new features and updates from Autodesk this year for point cloud processing, specifically for civil infrastructure.
Greetings from the Infrastructure Universe! In addition to some recent updates to note, I also have some awesome resources for InfraWorks and Civil 3D for you. Read on for all the updates and make sure you watch the videos.
If you’re using reality capture today or starting to explore the technology, you may have discovered that in order to make sense of data you collect, there is a little bit of work to do between actually capturing the data and using it in your Civil 3D drawings. Here’s a quick overview of the workflow you can follow to take your point cloud data to Civil 3D.
Construction projects have historically been complex, time-consuming, and resource-intensive. That’s where drones can help. Here are 3 key benefits to using drones on your next construction project.
