[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!

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.
So you need to reference objects from another drawing in your Civil 3D project; do you use external references or data shortcuts? When do you choose one over the other? In this video, get a sneak peek at the most common questions Civil 3D users have about xrefs and drefs that Ron Couillard will answer during the December 5th Infrastructure Tuesday webinar.
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.
