Civil 3D 2017 What’s New: Feature Lines as Corridor Baseline

May 16, 2016 By Leo Lavayen Leave a comment

Feature Lines have always carried the X,Y (like an Alignment) and the Z (similar to a Profile). I'm glad to finally see this AWESOME update in Civil 3D 2017, giving users the ability to create a Corridor from a Feature Line.

Civil 3D 2017 What’s New: Corridor Clean Up

May 13, 2016 By Leo Lavayen Leave a comment

This is what we have been waiting for since the first release of Corridors... The ability for Corridors to turn tight corners without bumping into itself.  We addressed this behavior and possible workarounds this in an earlier blog post, Casual Corridors.

Civil 3D 2017 What’s New: Siteless Feature Lines

May 11, 2016 By Leo Lavayen Leave a comment

Since the release of Civil 3D Feature Lines, their interaction has plagued us.  We discussed this very issue in a previous 2014 blog article, Grading Gone Wrong.

 

 Autodesk took the hint and added in the use of Feature Line styles to control the Split point resolution within the Sites > Feature Lines > Properties…

Building Intersections with Overlapping Alignments in Civil 3D

December 14, 2015 By Leo Lavayen Leave a comment

When multiple alignments are present at an intersection, Civil 3D will recognize ALL of the alignments and create funky corridors.

It is not a typical scenario to have multiple alignments stacked up in the same location. However, there are some reasons for overlaps, such as:

Transforming Infrastructure with BIM!

October 02, 2015 By April Raque Leave a comment

BIM for Infrastructure is now!

This is your chance to learn how to take advantage of BIM within Infrastructure throughout design, engineering, and construction. As an ever increasing number of infrastructure projects use Building Information Modeling (BIM), many in the industry are realizing they need to embrace BIM to compete and win new work. A range of appealing benefits accompany projects that use a BIM-based approach: less rework, fewer errors, enhanced collaboration, and useful design data.

Florida Local User Group

FLUG is the Florida Local Users Group, which still poses the question, "What is FLUG?"

The Florida Local Users Group strives to provide a common Forum where Individuals of the Bentley and Autodesk communities, such as Local Community Users, CADD Technicians & Developers and Third-Party Vendors & Developers can come together to share ideas, building knowledge of the Industry Changes, Software Development & Support and Effective Training. FLUG runs both a spring and a fall conference each year to keep their members up-to-date on the local policies, like FDOT updates, as well as the latest in software and innovative industry related technology. The fall 2014 conference is taking place next week, from November 12-14th in Tampa, Florida.

Advanced Solutions is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of FLUG Fall 2014 and will have the privilege to present two in-depth classes at the conference. Attendees will extend their networks and learn about the latest Autodesk software, including innovative cloud-based solutions for engineers and architects. This year Autodesk and Advanced Solutions have partnered with FLUG to expand the offering of workshops and classes to be featured during the conference.
