Zombie Civil 3D General_Legal_Description_For_Parcels Report Rises Again

As most of you surveyors who use Civil 3D already know, the Genera_Legal_Description_For_Parcels report writer has been pretty much broken for quite a long time.  In this short blog post, I will show you how to bring it back from the dead to help you get a start on writing legals for Civil 3D parcel objects  

These procedures have been tested on Civil 3D 2020 on Windows 10 with Internet Explorer installed.  This will not work in Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Firefox, only in IE

Trimble SiteVision - Visualize Your 3D Model Data

Imagine if you could visualize your 3D design data in the real world, even though it only exists as a design model. Trimble® recently introduced SiteVision™ which is a user-friendly outdoor augmented reality system that brings your 3D design data to life so you can visualize, explore and understand the impact of your design in the real world.

SiteVision combines hardware and software in an integrated, lightweight handheld or pole-mounted solution.

Webinar Recording Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS Online for Civil 3D 2020.1

This video is a recording of Seiler Design Solutions monthly webinar series titled "Using the Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS Online in Civil 3D 2020.1" which was broadcast on Friday, October 25, 2019.

In this webinar, Seiler Design Solutions will demonstrate the organization, curation and use of GIS data utilizing the Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS Online. This data can be imported into your Civil 3D design as true civil objects.  Data from the completed project can be published back to ArcGIS Online to make our finished design information available to other projects or maps.

Upload Civil Objects to ArcGIS Online with the Autodesk Connector in Civil 3D 2020.1

Seiler Design Solutions presents the fourth in a series of videos featuring the Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS Online and how the data can be used in Autodesk Products.

In this video, we will show you how you can connect to and upload data from Civil 3D to ArcGIS Online, copying standard Civil 3D object properties to the online GIS layers. This data can be used by GIS Professionals in their maps and analyses and can be accessed by other design professionals for future design work.
