Menus Not Displaying in Civil 3D 2017?

Civil Survey Solutions software uses the in-built Autodesk Autoloader functionality to load menus after software (such as Civil Site Design and Stringer) are installed.  For some users installing the software is not resulting in the Autoloader ‘doing its thing’ and loading in the new menu system.

Autodesk have identified this as a bug and have provided a hotfix to address the problem.  So, if you’ve installed software for Civil 3D 2017 and the menu/ribbon isn’t displaying, you should follow the instructions as per this hot fix:

After you replace the problem file, restart Civil 3D 2017 and the application menus will all display.

HEC-RAS 2D Analysis

In Civil Site Design V17.1, you can now exchange data with HEC-RAS 5.0 or later for undertaking 2D flow analysis.

Civil Site Design can share your existing and design terrain data to HEC-RAS. After flow analysis has been performed in HEC-RAS, Civil Site Design can read the flow information directly from HEC-RAS and display it in Model Viewer.

Analyse flow and flood development over time, in 3D and in context .
