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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 Productivity Pack Released

November 22, 2013

Key Features of this Productivity Pack

Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2014 Productivity Pack 1 consists of the following features:

  1. AutoCAD® Civil 3D® Export Drawing – This new utility allows users to export an AutoCAD® Civil 3D® drawing to either Autodesk® AutoCAD® .DWG or MicroStation® .DGN. Users can control the drawing(s) and layout(s) that may be exported as well as how xrefs will be handled.
    a.  AutoCAD Civil 3D model and annotation elements will be converted into basic entities and saved in either .DWG or .DGN format files.
    b.  AutoCAD Layouts can be exported as AutoCAD .DWG format files.
    c.  Users can also opt to export a model space view as well as a selection of layouts to AutoCAD .DWG format files.
  2. Ability to display gravity pipe network parts as true sections (with a sliced appearance) in AutoCAD Civil 3D sections.
  3. Ability to include pressure pipe networks in Autodesk® Vault.
  4. Inclusion of the AutoCAD “Set Location” command in the AutoCAD Civil 3D Toolbox. Note that this command exists natively in AutoCAD Civil 3D but is not exposed in the ribbon. We have added this Toolbox command as a convenience to AutoCAD Civil 3D customers.

The productivity tools for Civil 3D 2014 was published May 14, 2013.  Some of you might not have known this, that is why I am posting this.

The utilities included in this is as follows:

Cartogramma Utility for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2014

The Cartogramma Utility for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2014 is a graphical representation of earth works in designed area. Locations and quantities of cut and fill areas are precisely determined.

AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2014 Extension for Civil View

The AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2014 Extension for Civil View is intended to be used in conjunction with the existing Export to Civil View for 3ds Max Design option in AutoCAD Civil 3D and provides the ability to add Civil 3D alignment, profile and pipe network data to your Civil View model in Autodesk 3ds Max Design.

AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2014 Import/Export Extension for GENIO

The AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2014 Import/Export Extension for GENIO streamlines the migration of data from Bentley® MXROAD® software to AutoCAD Civil 3D software. It also enables customers to use AutoCAD Civil 3D on projects that require Bentley MXROAD format deliverables and/or the use GENIO or binary "modelfile" format as data sources.

Microdrainage WinDes Utility for Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2014

The Microdrainage WinDes Utility for Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2014 provides the ability for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® Pipe Networks to be renamed and exported to SWS/FWS format for analysis within WinDes System 1 and then imported to update the pipe network in AutoCAD® Civil 3D® to create a 3D model of drainage network as well as product plans, sections and pipe and structure schedules.

Autodesk® Shared Reference Point 2014

The Autodesk® Shared Reference Point 2014 provides functionality to export known points and elevation from AutoCAD Civil 3D to an external file, in which Revit can import and setup a ‘Shared Coordinate System’. This enables the collaboration of exported RVT, DWG and NWC files back to AutoCAD Civil 3D and to coordinate models in Autodesk Navisworks.
