You may already know that CTB and STBs are types of plot styles. But what you may not know is that each drawing created is either CTB-based or STB-based—you can't have a drawing that is both. In this video, I took a quick look at the difference between them.
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!
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...
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...
In the October 10th Infrastructure Tuesday webinar, Nick Harper discussed four ways that you can coordinate data between Revit and Civil 3D. Read on to learn how you can share your project data in a meaningful way.
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.
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...
