Infrastructure Universe Mini-Update: Civil 3D 2018 Backward Compatibility
There have been questions about the backward compatibility of objects and drawings in Civil 3D with the new 2018 release. To make it easy, I’ve created a quick chart here to help you with understanding what is backward-compatible, what is not, and what depends. Fill out the short form below to get a copy of this chart!

When designing a corridor in Civil 3D, you have likely had projects end up with a complex corridor model with many regions, each with its own assembly. If you’ve spent time wishing for a way to simplify this process, you’ve been looking for conditional subassemblies.
The grading tools in Civil 3D are used to design finished ground surfaces. If you’re a Civil 3D user, you should be familiar and comfortable with the tools for grading objects and corridors. If you’re not, that’s okay. James Lord, one of our Solutions Consultants, focused on grading in Civil 3D in this month’s #InfrastractureTuesday webinar.
If you’re a civil designer that receives drawings from clients or consultants who only use AutoCAD, you may be wondering how to pull quantities like plain AutoCAD objects in Civil 3D. Learn how to use the Quantity Takeoff Manager in Civil 3D to help you do this.
We get hundreds of problematic files that come through our tech support center and a ton of emails from clients complaining about slow files and other strange issues. Here are a few simple steps you can take to help keep your files running clean and fast.

In Civil 3D 2018, if you go to the Toolbox tab and expand Miscellaneous Utilities, you will see the category for Surfaces. Under that, you will see Quick Cross Section. Ron Couillard explains how to use the quick cross-section tool to get a fast look at your Civil 3D surfaces.
Greetings from the Infrastructure Universe! This month, I have a whole bunch of recent Autodesk software updates to share. I also have several must-watch videos for you to work better in Civil 3D. Read on for all the updates.
The newly released Autodesk® Revit® 2017 brings more stability and uptime with improvements to over 100 functions in the program. Revit is made for BIM and, in the 2017 release, features more efficient processes to connect architectural design, MEP and structural engineering. Below is a collection of resources to help you discover what is possible in Revit 2017.
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.
Have you noticed that when you create a new storm system in Autodesk Civil 3D 2015 or 2016 that the darn sumps are all set to 2.0, even when your rules specifiy them to be 0.0? Bill Neuhauser explains how to change this default value in Civil 3D. Learn more:
Revit 2019 is finally here! Check out my conversation with CADLearning’s Building Content Manager Jason Boehning about some of our favorite new features and what they’ll mean for Revit users.
At the Autodesk One Team Conference, held in Las Vegas in March 2018, U.S. CAD received a 2018 Autodesk Platinum Club award in the “Net Subscription Growth – USA” category.
You may have heard that with the 2017 release of Revit, Autodesk replaced the Revit vertical offerings (Architecture, MEP and Structure) with Revit (sometimes called “one-box”). What does this mean for you? Revit now contains the capabilities of all three verticals in one application. So, if you were previously using Revit Architecture, for example, you can now do everything you could do before (and more!) in Revit.
