Mundane Civil 3D Tasks to Automate with Dynamo for Civil 3D
Collapse Expand


The possibility to make anything can be overwhelming. Sometimes you just need a picture, a plan, or a push in the right direction. If you don’t know where to start in Dynamo for Civil 3D software, but you’re eager to know what can and cannot be easily automated, then this class is for you. In this class, we’ll walk through the specific steps of creating at least three scripts in Dynamo for Civil 3D. These scripts will automate some of the mundane tasks you do in each of your designs. From placing a legend on multiple sheets, changing text to all upper case, turning on and off layers, adjusting line types of your design based on the type of plan sheet you are creating, or inserting trees at a specific interval along an alignment—Dynamo can do it! At the end of this class, you’ll understand the basics, and you’ll have a few time-saving tools to use within your own projects, and the knowledge of how they were created.
