View these Videos where we have increased productivity in Civil 3D


Tools for grading:

Boreholes AVI this video shows how to place boreholes in plan, in profile and create a subsurface!

Reactor AVI Reactors on grading plans

Subdivion grading AVI DynaLOT does subdivsion grading in half the time

Multiple AreaVolume AVI Many Areas calculates Volumes by Areas each with its own topsoil and pre-grade depth. Strip, Rough Grade and Cut/Fill surfaces are created

Pond Stage Storage AVI create stage storage volume table from a pond surface in Civil 3D using Many Areas 

Service Connections AVi  shows how you can draw service connections, driveways and optionally label distance from manhole to sanitary service connection by selecting the mains and the lot lines

Label Grades AVI Label all grades on all lot lines

data prep and how to avoid the sawtooth effect AVI create a FL from a 2d pline, automatically selecting the cogo points along the pline and then densifying the arcs with an interval based on the radius.

Add Surface Labels AVI this video shows how to place surface labels at lot endpoints and along Feature Lines.

Convert Surface Labels to Points AVI this video shows how to take the elevation and roatation of surface labels and convert them to AECC Cogo Points

Tools for Roads:
Trim Section View Offsets AVI this video shows how to Trim a section View to an even offset beyond the last slope stake, this is possible only in C3D 2014

Modify Section View Elevations AVI this video shows how to Modify section Views to an even Elevation above and below the section, this is possible only in C3D 2014

Utilities to profiles watch this AVI where I plot all utilities that cross an alignment to profile with an ellipse drawn, and lable the station, invert, pipe description and depth of cover

Utilities to sections and profiles watch this AVI where I plot 3d plines with pipe sizes on sections and profile, show clearance between pipes and 3d plines in plan, New routine to place an aecc point at CL for each section on plan view, section view and profile and finally moving the cogo point in the section view and having it update in plan and profile

Utility Locations watch this AVI where i create a solid showing the deviation along an existing underground pipe that has a pipe size and maximum horizontal and verticall distance from the locates

 Profile Design AVI Profile Tools quickly and interactively draws design profile

 Profiles in Sync AVI   Keep 2 profiles in sync, especially important at intersections!

Airpot approach AVI Plot high low points from sections to profile and plan

Pipeline 3D stationing AVI shows how we can offset an og profile and modify the horizontal stationing based on the slope of the profile. this is required for pipelines to show the true length of the pipes

Sections to Surface AVI this video shows how to edit sections and create a subsurface!

Relate a pline to a alignment AVI Add station offset of radius Point to Table

Tools for PIPES:

Pipe Editor VI Pipe Editor allows you to easily modify your pipe sizes, inverts, slopes and sumps

Pipes to Excel AVI Pipe Tools edits pipes in Civil 3D or import/export to Excel

Safety Platforms

automated drop structures using 1 pipe size smaller

Label directions in profile band and plan view with construction north

View AVi showing how you can create and export catchment areas and pipes into an XPSWMM file than import back into civil 3D

Pipe Depth at PL Show Pipe depth at property line

Pipe Depth reportcreate a report showing the length of pipe in different depth zones

HydraFlow AVI Hydaflow Tools exports drainage areas to Hydraflow and imports the design data back to Civil 3D

Tools for HEC-RAS:
Export to Hec-Ras AVi   River Tools brings data from Civil 3D to HEC-RAS and back!

Import HEC Design dataAVI Import from HEC-RAS: Water Surface Extents; Velocities; Banks; Boundaries, in-effective areas, Channel CL and 2D and 3D Sections.

Tools for Surveyors:
 Use survey data to complete drafting AVI   creating finished survey plans

Migrate from LDD AVI Create Civil 3D prototype  drawing from LDD description keys and cogo block library in 1 pick., than draw 3d plines

Tools for Mining:

Create Underground Surfaces this video show the process to create a tunnel with surfaces and sections and volumes

Tools for Contractors:

2d to 3d dwgs Easily convert dwgs for grader control

Multiple AreaVolume AVI calculate Volumes by Areas each with its own topsoil and pre-grade depth. Strip, Rough Grade and Cut/Fill surfaces are created
Survey Tools AVI Survey tools, including routines to create linework, point groups and export Civil 3D objects to a data collector
