Eagle Point Software Corporation announces it will offer compatible solutions to Autodesk’s AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 software for the building design, infrastructure, and construction industries.
The company says its new Eagle Point Pinnacle Series add-on technology can improve an organization’s ability to implement AutoCAD Civil 3D and adopt new Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows. Using links to execute the right commands, the surveying, grading, roadway design, pipe layout, and plan set preparation workflows guide users while consistently following the organization’s standards and best practices.
Eagle Point’s Data Reduction feature utilizes direct links with several supported data collectors and data collector formats to download raw instrument and coordinate data. Whether the user is downloading directly from a collector or importing a file from a PC, Data Reduction places AutoCAD Civil 3D COGO points and automated linework into the drawing.
A set of tools that streamline the survey workflow, Surveyors’ Companion leverages proven surveying technology to enable organizations to comfortably and productively move to AutoCAD Civil 3D software. Surveyors’ Companion interacts with native point, parcel, surface, alignment, and profile data.
“We are glad to have an Autodesk Developer Network partner like Eagle Point Software announce the release of its portfolio of companion products for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011,” says Jim Quanci, Director of the Autodesk Developer Network. “Eagle Point’s expertise in the Civil Engineering markets has allowed them to leverage the new functionality in our 2011 version and enhance it with tools that help our clients take advantage of BIM.”
Other new features include:
- Scalability and performance improvements, as well as an optimized 64-bit version of Civil 3D
- Tools to better manage the creation and editing of corridors
- Enhanced superelevation functionality that provides a dynamic link to the alignment and flexible editing options
