Civil Site Design v24 has been released featuring many new and improved features to coincide with the Autodesk 2024 release.
Here is an overview of what’s in this release.
A Civil Site Design Toolspace has been developed from which users can design and edit & manage the roads and modelling content within their projects. The dockable palette will give users the benefit of contextually being able to access the majority of civil site design functionality via the Toolspace which would normally be found in multiple ribbon tabs.
Found in the Toolspace, users can now create Civil Site Design surfaces from 2D objects in the drawing. This feature is great for designers in receipt of 2d survey data – where no 3D information is present. Creating Civil Site Design COGO points from your 2d data, Civil Site Design immediately builds a surface and enables users to being designing faster.
The template editor has undergone a visual refresh with some additional options to now change the display and manage the sharing of templates. Found under the file pulldown, the template packing provides teams with the ability to exchange selections of templates and store them for specific local authorities or stakeholders.
Model Viewer now includes some terrain analysis features which will shade your Civil site Design and Civil 3D surface elevations and highlight road slope and crossfall ranges.
A selection of Catchment analysis tools has also been added where users can now analyse and display ponding, catchments and low points within any surface in civil site design, outputting the analysis back to the drawing.
