Geotechnical Module Add On for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013

Geotechnical module for AutoCAD Civil3D 2013

Users of AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 who are looking for a way to import their geotechnical data into the program will be happy to note that Autodesk has launched a new Geotechnical Module add on as a free download from their subscription center. The add on was created by Keynetix and licensed to Autodesk. The features (straight from the blog post) are:

  • Importing and connecting to geotechnical data, both AGS and CSV formats
  • Creating and managing Boreholes in both plan and model space
  • Creating and managing sub strata surfaces
  • Producing dynamic profiles and projecting log strips on to them Geotechnical hatch and style management

You are still on your own for the interpretation, but since the surfaces are created from your data, it gives you a good starting point for that process. [Source: From The Ground Up Blog. Image: From The Ground Up Blog]
