New Civil 3D Reporting and Productivity Tools

October 26, 2015

Autodesk Subscription

The AutoCAD® Civil 3D 2016 Transportation Extension, a Civil 3D Subscription entitlement, is now ready for customers to download through their Autodesk account. This extension provides a compelling reason to engage with your Civil 3D customers about getting current through Subscription.

The Transportation Extension offers specific reporting and productivity tools to address the unique needs of civil engineers working on road and highway projects. The reports are built for the specific purpose of calculating model output, and they display results based on multiple model elements and user controls.

The new productivity tools include greater file conversion capability, a new parcel properties manager, the capability to identify surface high and low points, and quick surface cross section analysis, which can help accelerate the preliminary design process.

Read Dave Simeone’s blog for further details on the Transportation Extension.
