Explore when you should use external references vs when to use data references when working in Civil 3D.
Using the Design Center to recreate drawing assets.
Covers the topic of inserting a drawing into another drawing in a drawing recovery process.
Covers the topic of the Civil 3D Layer States Manager, a tool we can use to save the current state of our layer properties.
Recreating Problem Drawings Part 1, Purging and Auditing drawings to clean up unused elements and to repair issues.
Learn how to handle custom CUI files while maintaining default AutoCAD profiles and CUI files by creating custom profiles and workspaces.
Learn how to create a personal profile which will then be modified so that we can maintain personal variables, LISP routines and keyboard shortcuts.
Fields are a very powerful way to keep annotation information up-to-date.
To quickly clean these vertices up, we first need to convert the 3D Polyline to either a Feature line or 2D Polyline, object types which supports true arcs.
Finding this intersection between two surfaces is simple to do, but unless you have needed this task in the past it may not be as straight forward as you would think.
Civil 3D objects can be labeled directly through an external reference, many times eliminating the need for a data shortcut within your drawings.
If the only change needed between Civil 3D styles are layers or properties, it may be more advantageous to create one style.
