Unable to see any Civil 3D data unless the drawing is inserted into a new drawing; occurring with newly created objects that disappear from one day to the next.
To prepare Civil 3D objects for 3D printing, you need to install Autodesk Print Studio. Installation of Autodesk Print Studio is easily accomplished by selecting Print Studio from the 3D Print panel of the Output ribbon or by selecting the Print option from the Application Menu, then selecting 3D Print. A dialog box will appear with the option to install if the program is not currently installed on your computer. The software and its drivers are easily installed by following the prompts throughout this process. Below is a link to an Autodesk Help Video that demonstrates the entire process:
A useful feature in Civil 3D 2017 is the ability to create folders under most major categories or objects from the Prospector tab in the TOOLSPACE.
Object Folders serve as an excellent tool to separate design alternatives, element types, phases, and more. Setting up Object Folders is a relatively simple process, just create a folder, name it, then drag and drop objects.
For example, organizing Surfaces:
Another useful application is the sorting of Alignments:
Recently while working with a client, I learned about a FANTASTIC Civil 3D feature; changing the Reference Alignment directly to a Pipe Structure Label. I confirmed this has worked since 2016.
Louisville, KY 05/01/2017 – Advanced Solutions, Inc. an Autodesk Platinum Partner announced their partnership with AVAIL, an enterprise content and workflow management solution focused on the AEC industry.
Advanced Solutions Design Software partners with 3DR to offer Site Scan™, the complete drone data platform for the AEC industry.
After a recent conversation with a longtime friend and Autodesk University Instructor, David Garrigues, I decided to post his interesting insight and content from one of his previous Autodesk University classes, on FG Corridor Surfaces. The illustration below displays how pasting EG and FG to together to create a composite surface does not produce the expected or desired result. These results are evident only upon creation of an entirely enclosed corridor, like in a Subdivision Layout, Pond, enclosed Berm or a moat.

In the new release of Civil 3D 2017, we gained a few more Pressure Pipe catalogs and a few more parts. Using the SetPressureNetworkCatalog command we can see the complete list
