I can’t believe it’s that time of the year. It really seemed like it was a few weeks ago when we were doing this last year. I am talking about a series of blog posts introducing new features and changes to Civil 3D 2013.
Besides some changes credited to the core AutoCAD functionality which you may read on some other blogs specialized in AutoCAD, although a few things such as the change in DWG format from 2010 to 2013, will be mentioned on Bieng Civil. More about AutoCAD Map 3D will also be published at Being Civil. In any case, here are a few key points you will be reading about in the next several weeks that will cover Civil portion of the changes.
- Linework generation for Civil 3D objects (backed by popular demand). All the feedback you have been providing us finally paid off.
- Improved performance (faster opening, processing, REGEN and rebuilding, especially corridors-more on that, BTW)
- Drive Along tool with ability to change path and add viewports.
- Rail alignments, assemblies and Cant design. New tools added to Civil 3D.
- Survey queries and adding queries to the Surfaces
- Volumes Dashboards and enhanced Surface tools
- Simplified Corridor Workflow and other Corridor enhancements
- Subassembly composer additions
- Assembly editing improvements
- Improved cross sections with multiple corridors
- Pressure Pipes and other things related to it are the big item this year.
And many more..
There are many goodies coming from that and I’m sure you will be reading about it here, at Being Civil.
FYI: Starting with future releases of AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software, Autodesk will no longer be providing support for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® Land Desktop Companion 2009 software. For more information see this and this.
Please stay tuned for more.
