In this release, as well as a design refresh of the ProjectExplorer user interface, we have introduced support for Civil 3D 2020, made major improvements to the validation, review and reporting capabilities for alignments and profiles, introduced a new Profile View for site feature lines, and added support for the creation of dynamic AutoCAD tables using Object Sets.
This release of ProjectExplorer features a cleaner, less cluttered user interface. A new tabbed layout at sub-object level makes it even easier to gain a better understanding of your design at a glance, as well as providing opportunities for future expansion of the product.
Alignment and profile geometry can now be reviewed or reported by station/chainage interval, alignment entity, alignment PI, profile entity, profile PVI, or by critical superelevation station. These data lists are all available within the user interface via several new tabs at sub-object level, and they all react to design changes applied in Civil 3D.
Use viewport highlighting via the CTRL button keyboard shortcut to easily identify the location of selected stations, entities and PIs/PVIs in your viewport. Contextual highlighting for any selected stations, entities or PIs/PVIs is also supported in the dynamic Profile View.
Newly introduced violation tooltip support for Design Check Sets and entity tangency can be used to easily validate that alignments and profiles meet your design objectives.
A new Profile View pane has been introduced for Site Feature Lines.
This allows a dynamically produced profile of any feature line to be reviewed and compared to another design element such as an existing ground surface. A series of associated new feature point elevation editing tools allows constant elevations or grades to be applied to any portion of a selected Feature Line.
Support for the creation and management of fully dynamic AutoCAD tables has been introduced using Object Sets. Tables may be generated at any pre-defined location in model space or paper space, using a pre-configured Table Style to determine the look and feel of the table.
There are two levels of automation to choose from to control the application of updates for any generated AutoCAD tables. Choose the manual option to control when table updates are applied with a single mouse click. Choose the new dynamic option to ensure that tables are updated instantly when any design change is detected in Civil 3D.
