[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!

I recently ran into an issue with a client when attempting to edit a pipe network in Storm and Sanitary Analysis. We noticed that Storm and Sanitary Analysis will open, but no data will be brought in from Civil 3D. Check out these videos for a demonstration of this issue and a resolution for the problem.
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.

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.
Recently, a client asked a few questions regarding the use of reference templates in Civil 3D. While he liked the overall idea of the process, he raised some interesting questions about what working with reference templates would mean. Here are some of the answers to questions you may have never thought to ask, researched and verified by me.
I recently received questions about the Plan and Production tools and whether those have the ability to generate tiled sheets for projects that do not fall along an alignment. The short answer is YES, Civil 3D has had it since the 2004 release.
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.
