Due to the fact that these are formatted as SQLITE files, you can imagine that a simple text editor will not do the trick.
In this video, absolute and relative rotations are covered as we go through the uses and application of various settings for linetypes that include text.
Autodesk has, since, very well expanded on a capability they previous had at a lesser extent by developing BIM 360.
When exporting an Autodesk Civil 3D drawing, the process has been generally straight-forward with some well-placed results in Model Space. That caveat adds some steps to an otherwise simple procedure.
Having been a long time coming, Pressure Pipe Networks and associated behaviors have been updated for Civil 3D 2021.
In many states, data is available for large areas in the form of IMG files (essentially a DEM file but differing data format).
When you're working with large datasets in Civil 3D it can affect your performance. Using Data Clips can help with this. Learn how.
Let’s look at a variable or setting in the linetype file that controls the behavior the orientation of the text.
When working on surfaces in Civil 3D, creating a boundary to limit the area used it straightforward.
Many times, the concern or question comes about where a user wants to know the differences between smoothing the surface versus smoothing the contours within Civil 3D.
During surface creation and modeling within Autodesk Civil 3D, breaklines can sometimes cross each other, possibly preventing the correct surface representation.
Using a simple surface, we break down how use generate catchment areas and export that geometry to drape to our surface for visual analysis and presentation.
See the new capabilities of the Autodesk Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Collection for Infrastructure professionals.
As both Autodesk and ESRI have, over the last few years, moved towards building a form of partnership for how GIS-related data is accessed and shared, both platforms have seen a few tools implemented
Modifying the current UCS by this method removed a bit of typing needed for the time-tested methods found in the UCS command.
The usual dialog box has given way to a palette which combines a few abilities, including multiple insert (MINSERT).
From my first use of it, the revamped AutoCAD command ‘purge’ has already proven valuable.
If you have ever wanted to delete a layer but come to find out that there are Civil 3D styles or some random object in the drawing, such as a block that uses it?
Here we will discuss how to manually input stationing, parameters, and critical data along an alignment that may have errant results or to simply start from scratch.
When working on Rail design in Civil 3D, you may (or may not) have realized there is a toolset directly aimed at that purpose.
