Hello everybody … As I mentioned on my last post we have lots of new functionalities regarding Assemblies and Subassemblies on Civil 3D 2013.
Renaming groups and subassemblies is really an important task, because they facilitate all our target mapping inside the Corridor Properties. It's always been a lot of work and it consumed a lot of time getting into the Assembly properties and renaming all of them one by one. Civil 3D 2013 gives us the ability to name groups and rename subassemblies and the moment that we are inserting them using Assembly Group Name Prompt and Subassembly Name Prompt.
You can access this option under CreateSubAssemblyTool command (Setting tab -> Subassembly -> Commands -> right click on CreateSubassemblyTool -> Subassembly Options).
If this property is ON, each time a new assembly group is created, the Assembly Group Name Dialog Box is displayed giving you the option to keep the same name or rename it at this point.
Subassembly Name Prompt
If this property is ON, each time a new subassembly is created, the Subassembly Name Dialog Box is displayed. Now, you have the option to rename the subassembly at the same time that you are creating your assembly.
…Stay tuned for more good things to come!!!
