[Video] 4 Questions about Developing Styles in Civil 3D
In Civil 3D, “styles control the appearance of drawing objects, labels, and tables. Different styles can be created to represent objects at different approval stages, or to display the right information for different types of users.”
Developing styles will be the focus of our next Infrastructure Tuesday webinar on April 3rd. In this video, I’m going to give you a little bit of an insight into what we’ll specifically be covering in the webinar.
In addition to some of my general tips & tricks for setting up Civil 3D styles, we’ll answer the following questions:
- How do I navigate the Settings tab to create styles?
- How do I “borrow” styles from one drawing and bring them into another without having to go through the Wizard?
- How do I filter default settings through All Styles?
- How can I take styles and make new ones quickly and easily?
Join me at the Infrastructure Tuesday webinar on April 3rd for the answers!
In the September 5th Infrastructure Tuesday webinar, Aaron Powell discussed three infrequently used tools and features inside Civil 3D you can use to reduce the size of your surfaces in Civil 3D and, consequently, speed up your drawings.
Civil 3D 2019 was released a few months ago and with it came some cool new features. Some of the features of course are specific to Civil 3D and some are part of the AutoCAD 2019 new features.
InfraWorks 360 is big news this month! Below are the new additions to the latest release of InfraWorks 360 as well as some updates and new tools released for Civil 3D 2016. Read on for all the updates.
There have been questions about the backward compatibility of objects and drawings in Civil 3D with the new 2018 release. Here’s a quick chart to show you what is backward-compatible, what isn’t, and what depends.
In Part 2 of the Point Clouds series, Bill Neuhauser will be sharing a quick way of getting what you need from a huge Point Cloud, plus a lot more. Learn how to create what he calls a Hybrid Point Cloud.
Over the last few weeks, Autodesk has released a couple of updates for various software. I also have some really cool videos and articles that show some helpful tips & tricks for Civil 3D. Read on for all the updates this month.
If you’ve been following the Infrastructure Universe updates so far, you’ve seen lots of updates for Civil 3D, InfraWorks, ReCap, and Navisworks. We also want to bring you up to date on Autodesk Vehicle Tracking (AVT).
At the upcoming Infrastructure Tuesday webinar on Sept. 5th, U.S. CAD Senior Technical Specialist Aaron Powell will be sharing expert tips & tricks for working with surfaces in Civil 3D. In this video, he gives a sneak peek of how he was able to reduce an existing surface to a workable size without losing information.
Annotation scaling in AutoCAD allows you to plot annotation at the same height or size regardless of the viewport zoom scale. In this webinar, I give an overview on annotation scaling and looked at the actual tools for annotation commands and how it can reduce the time spent in annotating drawings.
Alignments and profiles are the foundation of most civil engineering projects. Civil 3D users should be comfortable creating both alignments and profiles. In this month’s #InfrastractureTuesday webinar, Tim Long demonstrated how to use alignments and profiles in Civil 3D.
In June 2011, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) selected Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D software for road and high design projects statewide. The agency has announced that all new projects, starting July 1, 2014, shall be designed using AutoCAD Civil 3D. Click here to read more about Caltrans’ plans to move to AutoCAD Civil 3D.
Civil 3D 2018.2 brings updates that may have welcome additions for many users. Autodesk has organized these features into three categories: design efficiency, production efficiency, and collaboration and data exchange. Read on for more info!
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.
External references (xrefs) and data shortcuts (drefs) are two methods of attaching and referencing data from other projects in Civil 3D. In this webinar, I took a look at the advantages and disadvantages of both. Read on to learn more!
Greetings from the Infrastructure Universe! Over the last few weeks, Autodesk has released a few important updates for various programs. I also have some exciting new tools and interesting videos to share with you this month (and a favor to ask)!
