Civil 3D users will find great value in the CIM Project Suite™. With tools for grading, sheet production, corridors, pipe networks and surveying, users of all levels will benefit.
Designed for the savvy Civil 3D corridor user, this tool addresses corridor management. Users can select multiple corridors, baselines and regions, and in one click, remove all surface, width, and/or slope targets. This tool will help users quickly reconstruct their corridor regions without the need for tedious target removal or completing deleting the corridor or region.
Created for all Civil 3D users, this tool provides a much-needed data-conversion method in Civil 3D. It generates an alignment and layout profile from a feature line. Used by surveyors to stakeout site feature lines such as curb, or designers needing data conversions without the need for redrawing, this tool is highly valuable in all Civil 3D workflows.
Built for all Civil 3D pipe network users, this tool allows the swapping of multiple parts, both structures and pipes, for alternatives. Users can select parts in plan, profile view, or by pipe network name. Parts will be swapped similar to the native Swap Parts command, but allows it to be performed on multiple parts at a time.
Built for the survey Civil 3D user, this tool takes the tedium out of working with survey databases. It will simultaneously delete selected survey points and survey figures from drawings and survey databases. Users will find this a big time saver when deleting unwanted data generated through linework processing, or other common missteps in working with survey databases.
Data Wizard creates project-specific legends and quantity takeoffs of both AutoCAD and Civil 3D objects. It will scan one or more drawings for all point, line and/or area-type objects, and create a dynamic AutoCAD table, including text and symbology that’s typically shown.
Objects can include blocks, cogo & survey, points, multileaders, hatches, lines, 2D & 3D polylines, survey figures, feature lines, parcel segments, and alignments. Legend and quantify takeoff settings can be saved in different templates for quick and easy execution by end users.
Automatically label your sheets and drawings with both Civil 3D and AutoCAD annotation. Choose anchor objects through property filters, then insert hundreds of labels at once on surfaces, lines and curves, alignments, mtext, leaders, blocks, and more.
This tool works on multiple drawings and layouts at the same time. Users have detailed control of label insertion, including offsets, rotation, scaling, styles, and more. AutoCAD label text can be populated with custom text, or AutoCAD fields can be inserted to generate dynamic links to anchor objects. Save labeling “scenarios” for quick repeat on other projects or drawings. Label Genie will accomplish what typically takes hours or days of work in a fraction of the time.
Sheet Generator will create plan and/or profile sheets, similar to the native Viewframes toolset, but allows dynamic updating of sheets. Users will be able to create “viewshapes” in model space, then edit them and “push” changes to sheets. Viewport size and position, profile views, north arrow, sheet numbering, Matchline text and more, are all dynamically linked to model space “viewshapes.”
Create site grading models that are dynamic and stable at the same time. Define “parent” feature lines through native methods, then create grading families to both generate and update “child” feature lines. “Parent” lines can be anything, but might include gutter lines, pond tops, or right-of-way lines in subdivisions. Plug in distance, slope, and daylight parameters to create back/top of curb, pond benches, or side and back of lot feature lines.
When “parent” lines change, refresh grading families to automatically update “child” lines. Breaklines are automatically added to surfaces. Layer and style assignment is automated through user settings. Truly effective site grading in Civil 3D has arrived with Auto Grader!
The Corridor Mapper will allow for corridor targets to be automatically assigned by mapping layers to subassemblies. Users can define a “mapping” for a given for a given corridor, then simply create target objects on those layers and the corridor will automatically assign those targets to the appropriate subassemblies.
This tool completely replaces the native Target Mapping dialog box with a much more dynamic and powerful option.
The Corridor Merger will combine multiple corridors into one. All corridor baseline and region definitions will merge into one corridor, including assemblies, station limits, frequency, targets, and overrides. Users have options to create surfaces based on previously defined surface definitions.
This tool allows a single corridor to be split into two corridors. All original corridor properties, including targets, frequencies, surfaces, and more, will remain intact, saving a lot of time. The user can select which regions and baselines will belong to which corridor.
Users have additional options to rename the new corridors, as well as the baseline and region names.
Generate detailed earthwork definitions by creating earthwork sets, and provide an existing and proposed surfaces, as well as polylines or feature lines to represent varying subgrade depths across the site, and Earthwork Processor will do the rest, including generating a dynamic subgrade surface, accounting for topsoil stripping, and resulting in cuts and fills per region.
When designs change, simply refresh the earthwork set and everything will be updated automatically. Results can be labeled, shaded, inserted in AutoCAD tables, and exported to a spreadsheet file.
Built for all Civil 3D pipe network users, this tool facilitates network design inside Civil 3D drawings with a spreadsheet editor. Users can design entire pipe runs by editing slopes and invert drops, interpolating slopes between parts and applying rules. Users can design upstream, downstream, or both.
Load pipe networks in an in-app spreadsheet or export to a spreadsheet file. Edit parameters and perform analyses in the spreadsheet, then push changes back to the pipe network. Create customized manhole schedules, pipe depth reports, and detailed QTO, all through one intuitive interface.
Tabling and labeling of important pipe network structure or pipe part data, such as grate or casting, can be a tedious process. Users must manually enter these values in each part’s properties dialog box. This tool provides an interface to push user-defined values for grate, cover, frame, and material to multiple structures in a single command. This makes creation of manhole schedules much faster. Pipes can now have their reference surface, reference alignment, and description modified with the latest update.
Layer and styles management in Civil 3D can be a tedious process. This tool will allow the tracking of layers referenced in Civil 3D styles. This is a great benefit for performing template (.dwt) maintenance and updating, as well as for keeping project drawings clean and organized. Upon choosing a given layer, the tool will show all styles that use that layer.
The user can then choose to swap out that layer for another (with one or more styles), or to edit a style’s layers right within the tool. The user can then purge styles if there are no other references, and/or delete layers if there are no other references.
Convert survey point files from one code list to another, allowing field work in one code list, and CAD processing in another. Through a simple spreadsheet “translation file” that spells out the code conversions, the tool will read the conversions and apply them to one or more point files. Line work codes, as well as prefixes and suffixes in coding, are all accounted for.
