Designers’ Companion for Civil 3D

Eagle Point Designers' Companion
Designers’ Companion™ reduces the number of steps and simplifies your workflow for common civil engineering design tasks within AutoCAD® Civil 3D®. Guided by a straightforward interface, Designers’ Companion offers AutoCAD Civil 3D users efficient tools to rapidly lay out subdivision streets, lots, highways, parking lots, detention ponds and subsurface terrain. By leveraging the dynamic, iterative power of the Civil 3D model earlier in the design process, project alternatives can be quickly modified and finalized sooner.

For many design projects, the sophisticated and robust options AutoCAD Civil 3D provides are not always needed. By condensing the number of inputs and streamlining the interface, less time is spent worrying about which commands to run next, allowing more time to be spent on design.

Features & Benefits

  • Dramatically reduce the steps and simplify the command flow needed to initially create roadway corridors, combining the necessary inputs (alignments, profiles, assemblies, targets, etc.) into a single routine.
  • Quickly lay out subdivisions according to your local agency standards complete with alignments (centerline and right of way), centerline profile, and dynamic lots that move and update when your street changes.
  • Grade site details utilizing simple slope projections that produce 3-D Feature Lines linked to proposed surface models, bypassing the need for Grading Groups.
  • Generate subsurface terrain models using soil boring measurements and advanced modeling techniques that resolve daylighting conflicts between surfaces.
  • Draft inlet, manhole and pipe symbology into profile views for simple pipe representation when a full pipe network isn’t warranted.
  • Plus 15 other tools to help size and create detention ponds, grade parking lots, lay out utilities and generate reports to assist in many other design tasks.

Surveyors’ Companion for Civil 3D

Eagle Point Surveyors' Companion
Surveyors’ Companion™ allows you to comfortably and productively move to AutoCAD® Civil 3D® with simplified COGO routines and user interface. It’s integrated within Civil 3D and interacts with native point, parcel, surface, alignment and profile data.

Multiple routines (both dialog and command line based) are included to input raw alignment, lot and field traverse information directly into your drawings, bypassing the requirement of using an external survey database. Robust point placement routines are also available to quickly locate COGO points that can be uploaded to the field for staking.

Features & Benefits

  • Straightforward commands cut through AutoCAD Civil 3D’s sophisticated interface and provide simple surveying routines for surveyors moving from Land Desktop, Carlson or Eagle Point Software.
  • Intuitive interface and flexible options allow you to input and query survey information directly within the AutoCAD Civil 3D drawing, bypassing the Survey Database.
  • Input traverse information faster with efficient dialog box and command line interfaces.
  • Simplify staking point file creation by locating design stakes from just alignment and profile data (no corridor needed).
  • Use streamlined reporting features to prepare, view and print legal descriptions, coordinate lists, stakeout reports inverse information and area reports.
