Civil 3D 2013–Raising Awarness

It is that time of the year where Autodesk releases the next version of Civil 3D. Here is some information regarding the new product for 2013.

The good news if you have a Design Suite is that it now includes Raster Design. There are some other products included now, but I’m less excited about those. Until Infrastructure Modeler has interoperability with Civil 3D it is pointless with small shops like mine.

There are also Cloud Units available with the Suites. Somehow I think this is going to be short term product, just because of the cheese name of the product.

Top new features!

Survey Query Functionality

Enables you to search for information from the survey. Why not have this for everything? Seems a bit short sighted to just have it for Survey Data. Why didn’t Autodesk put the time and money in getting Civil 3D objects to be viewable by Map? That way we could use existing functionality to look for all types of Civil 3D objects.

General Improvements

The improved Surface Boundary Definition allows you to create a hide boundary with another surface from a corridor boundary.

I didn't list out the new features of Infrastructure Modeler. There is now an IMX export that takes alignment and surface information from AIM into Civil 3D, and corridor information back to AIM.

I will try to blog about it this week.

I'm pretty sure a roadway is more then it's 2D horizontal position in space. There is pavement, asphalt, PCC, base, subgrade, subbase, street lights, yellow stripes, double yellow stripes, traffic markings, handicap ramps, railings, MBGR, over excavation, etc...

I didn't record out the new functions of Facilities Modeler. There is now an IMX upload that requires positioning and exterior details from AIM into Municipal 3D, and arena details returning to AIM.
