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.
Whether you work in civil engineering, facilities management, or on infrastructure and construction projects, you understand the drivers and benefits of BIM. Yet despite this, there’s a very real chance that you’re not currently embracing BIM.
Why is that?
The much beloved Autodesk Land Desktop civil engineering solution was discontinued almost 10 years ago and replaced by Civil 3D, but that’s not to say it went away entirely.
However, Land Desktop is no longer supported by Autodesk (i.e. no technical assistance if things go wrong, hot fixes, or service packs). Additionally, civil engineering software, in the form of Civil 3D, has evolved drastically since 2008, adding more features, functionality and product integrations.
Autodesk recently announced AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015, and this years release introduces a wide array of small but significant features that you will undoubtedly find yourself using on a daily basis. More specifically, these improvements are seen through the addition of numerous corridor modeling, profiling, labeling, and export/output improvements.
From grading to storm and sanitary sewer design, AutoCAD Civil 3D Surfaces serve as a foundation for nearly all aspects of a typical civil engineering project. Given the far reaching impact of AutoCAD Civil 3D Surfaces, it's important to keep your data as lean as possible as not to negatively effect your projects performance. There are several ways to accomplish this including the best practice of limiting the total number of surfaces contained within any one drawing.
