What's New?Carlson’s latest release of Civil and Hydrology brings intuitive UI upgrades that provide a more dynamic work experience along with advanced new features including improved surface model and pipe network design.The upgraded TIN creation and editing utilities are now much more dynamic in their operation. Users can easily make edits with the upgraded Triangulation Surface Manager, track those changes, and apply them when new data is entered. With improved entity linking, points and breaklines automatically update the TIN when modified manually or from Field to Finish. Triangulation Utilities such as Crop, Cut, Smooth, Simplify, Clean, and the new Carlson Surface Object are designed to work on large surfaces such as those from Point Clouds. Site Design tools such as the new Draw Template Polylines for creating curbs and the updated Edit-Assign Polyline Elevations greatly improve the efficiency of designing and creating a 3D model. Dynamic Labels for 3D points, slopes, and polyline vertexes make editing a plan much quicker and easier.
Joining past focus on 3D features and enhanced collaboration options are a new Cut/Fill Movement Analysis command, which allows users to compare two surfaces and determine the optimized cut and fill for the site and provides reports by the distance moved, allowing users to analyze which equipment to use, such as dozers for shorter distances, shovel and trucks for longer distances.
Another top enhancement in Carlson Civil is the ability to create a curb ramp out of 3D polylines – the program adjusts the polylines to fit in the ramp to your specifications. Other top features that are in all Carlson releases include the Carlson Community for sharing files with other Carlson users; the new "Supersonic" 3D Viewer for loading surfaces that provides excellent graphic presentations; an improved Report Formatter; and a new command for importing MSWord documents and dynamically link them to drawings.
Work with Carlson Civil on AutoCAD (versions 2010 to current) or with the built-in IntelliCAD 8.2. With Carlson Civil, you'll get true 3D, easy-to-use 3D, plus, with the updated 3D Flyover, any surface edits made in CAD are automatically updated in the 3D view.
- Road NETwork -- Build all roads, intersections and cul-de-sacs in 2D and 3D with a single click of the “PROCESS” button
- Site NETwork -- Elevate your estimating accuracy with this intuitive layer-based surface generator and earthwork calculator
- Lot NETwork -- Quickly define an entire subdivision of lots based on an outer boundary, interior ROWs or Centerlines, and a simple set of user-defined "rules" then pick "PROCESS" and the lots appear, defined and labeled
Carlson Civil is one component of the Carlson Civil Suite and is designed especially for civil engineers and CAD technicians who need power and flexibility to make “short work” of even the most challenging design projects. At its foundation, Carlson Civil contains sophisticated and integrated command sets that are easy to learn, cost-effective and even fun to use!
