Topics include civil engineering industry insight featuring Autodesk civil engineering software, including AutoCAD and Civil 3D.
When a point gets created in Civil 3D a point style and point label style get assigned to the point. This can be directly to the point through default styles/ description keys, or through point groups
Creating custom labels to calculate needed structure values.
“Do we upgrade now, or wait?” While there’s no single correct answer to that question, it is worth considering a few items that may impact your decision making on the topic.
We often get the question "How do you check clearances between civil 3D Pipe elements?" In this article, we explore 3 options to solve the issue.
Forcing Civil 3D labels to inside (below) or outside (above) with a setting.

One of the many feature enhancements that Autodesk focused on with the release of Civil 3D 2022 was pressure pipe networks. Now, pressure pipe networks can be updated with Project Explorer.
Instead of manually trying to recreate documentation of infrastructure components and locations, you can leverage technology to create intelligent 3D models.
Pressure networks can contain multiple branches in a single network, called pipe runs in Civil 3D, and this update introduces enhancements to editing parts contained in a pipe run.
The overall workflow is simplified by removing the secondary dialogs for selecting the object targets and incorporating that process into a single primary dialog and adding additional features.
It may seem like it should be a simple fix and that Part Builder or Civil 3D should automatically re-order the list appropriately, however, it will require a manual edit to make it happen.
The Civil 3D 2022.1 update is required to make the property cells available in the parts list. The values can be input when adding a pipe size or by editing an existing pipe size.
