Faster, easier, smarter civil design software for AutoCAD Civil3D, AutoCAD, and BricsCAD


Civil Site Design v17 – Sneak Peek

Civil Site Design v17 will be released very soon. This version of the software will be available for versions of AutoCAD and Civil3D 2012 to 2017 and also BricsCAD. Subscription users will be sent an e-mail soon, which includes a new serial key.

Along with minor improvements through-out the software, we have added some new functionality including line marking to Model Viewer. A new lightweight object called a “cut-out” has also been added to Model Viewer. This object allows for the fast insertion of objects such as trees to the visualisation.

Check out some of these new commands in the videos below:

Cross Section plotting – Learning Videos

At the end of last year, we released a new cross section plotting engine for Civil Site Design. New functionality included a modern streamlined interface,  automatic plot updating (as you edit your design), new band control and object tagging functionality, offset filtering controls for surfaces, and text display enhancements (utilising label styles).

To learn more about the new cross section plotting engine and how you can set it up for use on your next project, watch the learning videos below.

Converting ECW to JPG

ECW files are not as yet supported within Model Viewer for draping aerial imagery over a terrain. However, by using the freely available ERDAS ER Viewer, users can quickly and easily convert the ECW image file to a JPG file. The JPG file will be created with an associated JGW file, which stores all coordinate data.

The steps below outline the process for converting an ECW file using ER Viewer.

Download ER Viewer

Step 1: Open the ECW file.


Step 2: Zoom/Pan to image location.


Step 3: Save file as JPG
