If you are lazy like myself you don’t want to spend time setting up a Civil 3D Template in Visual Studio Express, you just want to download a file and get started. Well here is a Civil 3D 2013 Template for VB.NET that may save you some time. The only think you may have to do is make sure all of the references are resolved. The resolved location should be C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 or where ever you installed Civil 3D.
