What's New?Carlson’s latest release of Civil and Hydrology brings intuitive UI upgrades that provide a more dynamic work experience along with advanced new features including improved surface model and pipe network design.The upgraded TIN creation and editing utilities are now much more dynamic in their operation. Users can easily make edits with the upgraded Triangulation Surface Manager, track those changes, and apply them when new data is entered. With improved entity linking, points and breaklines automatically update the TIN when modified manually or from Field to Finish. Triangulation Utilities such as Crop, Cut, Smooth, Simplify, Clean, and the new Carlson Surface Object are designed to work on large surfaces such as those from Point Clouds. Site Design tools such as the new Draw Template Polylines for creating curbs and the updated Edit-Assign Polyline Elevations greatly improve the efficiency of designing and creating a 3D model. Dynamic Labels for 3D points, slopes, and polyline vertexes make editing a plan much quicker and easier.
- Added ability for user-defined custom fields to add to pipe, structure and inlet libraries
- Enhanced Collision Conflicts Check with an added method to check 3D polylines with assigned pipe data
- Added optional 3D symbols for structures for drawing model in 3D
- Added option to label only structures with assigned ID’s intended to help clear up utility network plans
These are in addition to other recent improvements: redesigned and enhanced sewer spreadsheet editor for working in profile view and added support in sewer network for multiple pipes between structures and for separate inlet locations, speed and ease design work for sewer or drainage networks.
Carlson Hydrology is tightly integrated with HydroCAD. This collaboration brings together the extraordinary ease of use that Carlson is known for, its 25+ years of experience mastering the civil/survey CAD environment, with the 25+ years of experience of HydroCAD in the unique, rapidly changing and highly regulated storm water modeling profession.
