Infrastructure Tuesday: Alignments and Profiles
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.
Alignments and profiles are used in civil infrastructure projects to lay out roads, railways, runways, trails, and more. In these situations, alignments often represent the center line of a road, a curb return, the edge of a travel way, etc. while profiles are lengthwise vertical representations of an alignment.

Question: How do object enablers work in Navisworks?
Expert Solution from Heidi Boutwell, CADLearning’s Infrastructure Content Manager: Autodesk uses object enablers in all of its platforms, including Navisworks. Object enablers ensure that model objects are displayed properly.
How often do you encounter confusion or difficulties when passing your Civil 3D design to a Revit user (or vice versa)? If this is a frequent problem, you’re not alone. Civil 3D and Revit don’t always get along well, but, with the right workflow, you can maximize your efficiency and make work easier for yourself and everyone you work with.
