Hi there… It is that time of the year again. With each release Autodesk always gives us a way to facilitate our life. In Civil 3D 2013 we have a lots of new functionality regarding Assemblies and Subassemblies.
I am sure that you inserted a subassembly in the wrong side probably in more than one occasion. Well, now we have Auto-Detect!
The Auto-Detect Side command setting enables AutoCAD Civil 3D to apply the side parameter of the subassembly to which a new subassembly is attached. You can access this option under CreateSubAssemblyTool command (Setting tab -> Subassembly -> Commands -> right click on CreateSubassemblyTool -> Subassembly Options). When this option is set to ON, the existing subassembly side overrides the side that is specified for the Current Side option.
Stay tuned for more good things to come!!!
