Corridor Transitions It's official, in the Civil 3D 2023.2 update, you can effortlessly transition from one condition to another — and you can re-use the transition throughout your project. You can transition any subassembly input parameter; whether you need to create driveways, bus bays, or a daylight slope transition, the workflow is simple and flexible. Using fewer assemblies, regions, and targets in a corridor model results in a simpler corridor that is faster to rebuild.
You can finally connect a pressure pipe to a gravity structure so they can interact and model piping systems in real-world scenarios. This helps with the modeling of accurate forcemains and annotate them with a single label that shows properties for both the gravity structure and the connected pressure pipe. Furthermore, you no longer need to lock the placement of appurtenances along a pipe run to an unmoved PI point thanks to editing enhancements made to Fittings and Appurtenances.
Subassembly Composer – Versioning and Code Standardization The 2023 update simplifies tracking and managing versions of a subassembly, making it easy to see which version is being used in a drawing, and validating it. In Subassembly Composer, the definition of point, link, and shape codes — which was time consuming and prone to typos —has been improved to enhance efficiency for the subassembly creators and ensuring the use of standard codes. Standard codes can be included in a shareable library. Importing a library into a PKT allows you to select the standard codes from a list – and new find/replace functionality allows you to quickly update nonstandard codes.
Performance Enhancements Thanks to some major performance enhancements, he 2023 release is significantly faster than previous versions. The Civil 3D 2023.2 also provides options to handle drawing Civil 3D object labels more efficiently, which speeds up drawing regeneration and pan and zoom operations.
Geotechnical Modeler Extension In 2023 Civil 3D you can now import custom CSV files and GINT CSV files. Custom field mapping is straightforward, and you can preview data as you configure the mappings, which you can export from the tool and use on other projects with similar data formats.
With the Dynamic Differential surface tool, you can take existing ground surfaces into account when you build stratum surfaces, which increases detail and realism of the subsurface stratum surfaces to mimic real-world conditions. The tool also considers the provided borehole data and matches the overall depths and elevations.
Property Set and Catchment Support in Project Explore Project Explorer and Grading Optimization have been made available to all Civil 3D subscribers with Civil 3D 2023. The Project Explorer 2023.2 update adds even more value with support for catchment objects and the ability to view, edit, and report on property set data.
