July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the historic landing of the Lunar Module Eagle on the surface of the moon.
Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin stepped out of that lander just a few hours later to be the first men to walk on the the moon. Astronaut Michael Collins orbited high above, monitoring their progress in the Command and Service Module Columbia which acted as their home for the 8 day mission.
The need to share information in other formats is a necessity to our normal design workflows. In this video, Seiler Design Solutions will show you how to export Civil 3D objects to a Google Earth .KMZ or .KML file and view them in Google Earth.
This is applicable to civil engineers, planners, surveyors and designers fo visualizing Civil 3D drawings in Google Earth for sharing with others, visualization or other planning purposes.
At one time or another you may have opened a Civil 3D drawing sent to you and noticed, while viewing details of a surface in the Prospector tab of the Toolspace, what looks like a little camera icon next to the Definition section. What does that little icon mean?
That icon stands for a surface snapshot, and in this article, I hope to help explain what a surface snapshot is and how it is used.
With the latest version of AutoCAD 2020, a new Block pallette gives new functionality in organizing, loading and placing blocks in your drawing.
However, when opening drawings containing a large number of blocks, there is a definite slowdown while the drawing is organized to catalog these new blocks. To alleviate some of the delays, Autodesk has issued a Hotfix for AutoCAD 2020.
