AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018, New Features :
Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 contains the following new features and enhancements.
Design Efficiency Updates
Create feature lines that are relative to surfaces. For more information, see About Relative Feature Lines.
Create profiles for offset alignments that are relative to the alignment-baseline. For more information, see About Creating Offset Profiles.
Create an alignment that transitions between two intersecting alignments and creates a profile that transitions between their profiles. For more information, see About Creating Connected Alignments.
Use a dynamic, extracted feature line as a baseline in the same corridor. For more information, see To Add Baselines to a Corridor and About Using Multiple Dynamic Baselines in a Corridor.
Resolve corridor bowties in variable width corridors and in fixed width corridors that contain curves. For more information, see About Corner Cleanup for Corridors.
Production Efficiency Updates
Move section views between section view groups and update the sheet layout. When updating the section view sheet layout, resized or inserted section views are respected. For more information, see To Move Section Views to a Different Section View Group.
Manage section view annotation by adding it within or crossing the section view drafting buffers. Annotation and drafting elements that you add within or crossing the section view drafting buffers will be bound to the section views and will move along with the section views. For more information, see About Section View Drafting Buffers.
Create plan/plan and profile/profile sheets by including multiple plan or profile views on a single sheet. New drawing templates have been provided that have their viewports already configured for these sheet layout types, which you can select when laying out the view frames. For more information, see Changes to AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 Drawing Templates and To Create View Frames for Plan/Profile Sheets.
Collaboration and Data Exchange Updates
Export AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 objects with the enhanced Civil View functionality for working with Autodesk 3ds Max. With this release, alignments, profiles, and pipe networks can now be exported. For more information, see About the AutoCAD Civil 3D Object Types that Can Be Exported to Civil View for 3ds Max.
Access commands for working with Autodesk InfraWorks and launch InfraWorks from the new Autodesk InfraWorks ribbon tab in AutoCAD Civil 3D.
