In this post I want to show you that exchanging data between Civil 3D and Carlson Survey is relatively easy. I made two posts today about transferring data using LandXML. Additionally, in this blog post at Carlson Connection you will find that working with Civil 3D data in Carlson/IntelliCAD is not such an impossible chore. Carlson Survey for example has a command to convert a Civil 3D or Land Desktop surface to a Carlson TIN file.
A quick presentation of transferring points and a surface model from Carlson Survey to Civil 3D using LandXML.
Note: In the last part of the video the presenter edits an existing surface style making it look harder that it actually is. A style to display contours is already defined in Civil 3D’s drawing template you simply change the style from a drop-down list in the surface properties instead of digging into the guts of an existing style to change settings.
Finding the right computer specs that will run AutoCAD Civil 3D the fastest without overspending on stuff that does not matter.
Trying to decide what hardware to put into your new computer to run AutoCAD Civil 3D? This takes some research of your own and relying on what other people say. You may still walk away wondering if you picked the right components. Here is what I have compiled from a variety of sources to help you cut down the time it takes to research your hardware list.
