On a recent support case, I came to realize that although Civil 3D 2017 uses the 2013 drawing format, the AEC objects (Points, Surfaces, Alignment, Profiles, Corridors, Pipes, Etc...) have been updated, causing them to not be recognized by the previous versions.
One of the most common and frustrating issues our support team deals with is trying to get everyone in an organization on the same level "Revit" playing field. If you utilize the worksharing features of Revit, Revit Architecture, or Revit MEP, then you're probably familiar with this issue.
Everyone in the worksharing group has to use the same version or build number of Revit, or face the consequences of data corruption and design errors. One of the most common support inquiries we get for Revit is, “My update won’t apply because of the following error message...”

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:

For months, all anyone has talked about is R2... And for months, I've had no idea what they meant by R2. Was it a new droid in the upcoming version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Is it the new R2D2?

During a recent AutoCAD Civil 3D Survey Class, we came across an issue when trying to customize the appearance of point labels within the Description Keys Configuration.
The Description Key ignores any value assigned to the "Label Fixed Rotation" field.
