Making the move to AutoCAD Civil 3D or just getting to grips with all the new features that Autodesk regularly rolls out, can be challenging.
DLT partner, IMAGINiT Technologies, sees them every day as they work on countless projects across the country. Getting the most out of Civil 3D and realizing its productivity and efficiency benefits requires a new approach to software.
Keep yourself out of trouble by avoiding these top three user fails for AutoCAD Civil 3D.
AutoCAD Civil 3D is about to get another round of enhancements. If you’re using Civil 3D 2018, be the first to learn what’s new in this upcoming webinar on September 20th, 2017 at 12.00 PM ET.
Join the Civil 3D product team as they share a preview of what’s coming in the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018.1 Update.
You’ll learn about some of the major efficiency improvements to common workflows including:
Autodesk University (AU) is a great event for anyone looking to explore new innovations in digital design or brush up on their software skills. But not all public sector organizations have the budget to send their CAD teams to AU. No problem! AU has assembled a catalog of on-demand sessions that you can watch for free. You can also download the presentations, workbooks, and transcripts to keep by your side as you explore what you’ve learned.
Just installed Civil 3D 2017? Maybe just downloaded Civil 3D 2017 v1? Well never fear….2018 is here!! That was somewhat sarcastic, but I do some see much needed improvements to AutoCAD 2018 and its vertical products such as Civil 3D. You saw throughout the year with most Autodesk products that you get more periodic updates. Civil 3D 2017 v1 was a great update and I see this trend continuing.
This article looks at some of the top new features within AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 and may help you make your decision to download and install today.
For infrastructure and transportation civil engineers and designers, the new releases incorporate feedback from users and stress better economics, practicality, resiliency and attractiveness in the conception, design and construction of road, highway, bridge, land, and other infrastructure projects.
Why your Agency Needs to Ditch Windows Explorer and Disk Drives for Design and Engineering Data Management
If you’re like most designers, engineers, or CAD managers, you probably rely on Windows Explorer and mapped network drives to manage and store project files. For instance, you may have one drive for design data, another for admin, another for permits, and so on. While it’s been the way you’ve done things for years, this habit of breaking your project up into pieces is a problematic approach that can result in misplaced data, poor version control, or deleted data due to incorrect file access control.
As you may know Autodesk Industry Collections became available to government agencies as of February 1. This date also coincided with the retirement of perpetual licenses for most of its products, including AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Inventor, Revit, and more. But what’s so great about these new collections and how do they differ from the old Autodesk Suites?
First let’s explain what a collection is.
CAD and GIS data have traditionally existed in two separate domains. Yet, the explosion of GIS data is leading these two worlds to merge. According to P&S Market Research, the GIS market is expected to increase from $7,612.9 million in 2014 to reach $14,623.8 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 11.4%.
Last fall saw some major updates to Autodesk’s flagship civil engineering software - InfraWorks 360 and AutoCAD Civil 3D.
To give users an overview of what’s new, the Autodesk product team have come together for “The Dan and Dave Show” once more. What features will be added or updated? Why were these changes chosen over others? The on-demand video below includes answers to these questions and more from the guys who call the shots when it comes to the development of InfraWorks 360 and Civil 3D.
