Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS for Map3D 2020

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

In this first video, we will show you how you can create rich feature data for use in creating a map for analysis and display for planning or other purposes. Data can be curated from your own ArcGIS Online account, or you can use publicly available data from others and the ESRI Living Atlas.

Here are some things AVA can help you with:

Keeping your AutoCAD Drawings Clean

It is a common scenario:

It is 3:00 on a Friday afternoon, submittal day for a project you and your firm has been working on for the last few weeks.  You are making last minute changes to ensure delivering a quality product, but your drawings are slow to open and sluggish to respond.  Your plots are taking far too long to complete and you're pushing the limits for time as they need to be checked, signed and sealed. Why is this taking so long?

Simple Feature Route Analysis with Map 3D

In the video linked below, I will show you how to do a simple analysis of a proposed water main route crossing through several parcels in AutoCad Map 3D with features brought into a drawing through an FDO connection.


Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2017 - What's New?

Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2017 has just been released, and there are a host of new features to expand your productivity and enhance your project workflows. I'll list the main features in this post.


Keeping up with Your Software Updates

Little software issues here and there, they all annoy us: 

"Why is my software crashing when I zoom in on this image?"

"I wish there were a way I could manipulate this object easier!"

"Why isn't this report giving me what I expect it should?"

Transform Coordinate Systems with Map 3D Tools inside Civil 3D

Have you have ever started a drawing in a particular coordinate system, only to find out a request has been made to transform it into a different one?  How do you do it?

This process will explain how to do it using Map 3D query tools from within Civil 3d.  This procedure will not work on Civil 3D objects. However, the original drawing can be brought into the new drawing as a Block insert, moved, rotated and scaled to fit the graphics of the new drawing, and exploded bringing the Civil 3D objects into their new locations.
