Civil 3D 2021...New Features

Autodesk continues to mold Civil 3D into the most innovative, broadly applied, and collaborative civil engineering software solution on the planet.

  • Civil 3D 2021 drawing and object database remain fully compatible with versions 2020, 2019, and 2018. Up, down and sideways compatibility.
  • Several enhancements to Pressue Pipe Networks, making it easier to create and, especially, to edit Pressure Pipe Networks. Pipe runs within a pressure network are now supported.
  • If you design bridges, Autodesk has developed workflows to exchange bridges between Civil 3D and InfraWorks. Design the bridge in InfraWorks, then export for use in Civil 3D. Inside Civil 3D 2021 are tools to project an imported bridge into a Profile View.
  • New Corridor exchange between Civil 3D 2021 and InfraWorks. Importing a Corridor into InfraWorks will now create a Component Road, making it fast to obtain quantities using Component Mapping.

New training course

Use the tools in AEC Industry Collection to streamline your civil workflow

Land development project efficiency increases through the use of AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks 360 as partner applications

This course guides you through a typical workflow for a land development project, using both Civil 3D and InfraWorks, with the goals of reducing early-project design costs and improving communication throughout project lifetime. This course is designed for Civil 3D veterans, experienced users who do not need instruction in the basics of that software, but are newer to InfraWorks and the efficiencies it provides.

Still not convinced that InfraWorks will shorten your civil project-design cycle? Read this report commissioned by Autodesk.


New features in AutoCAD and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018

Many new features beg your attention. Read about it on Tim's Civil 3D blog : AutoCAD 2018 New Features and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 New Features.


Introducing Autodesk Industry Collections

Autodesk has made significant changes to their software offerings. Various suites, such as Infrastructure Design Suite and Building Design Suite have been discontinued and replaced by the AEC Industry Collection. This collection includes AutoCAD Civil 3D, Revit, InfraWorks 360 and AutoCAD as well as other popular titles like Raster Design, AutoCAD Map 3D and Vehicle Tracking. Contact Delta Engineering Systems, or 530.221.2994 for more information.

Important technical upgrade for Civil 3D 

Autodesk has released the Performance Enhancement Tool to address reports of bloated drawings and excruciatingly long AutoCAD Civil 3D drawing load and save times. This problem affects drawings using any version 2013 through 2017. As is Autodesk policy, they only support three versions prior to the current, so the fix described below will cover 2014 through 2017. If you are using 2013, you might consider – should seriously consider – upgrading to a more-recent version. Please see our Support page for details.
