Civil Engineers: Look for Enhanced 3D Options in Carlson Civil & Hydrology 2105

MAYSVILLE, Kentucky, U.S.A. (July 2014)—  The 3D Viewer in the newly released Carlson Civil 2015 allows users to apply textures, animation, surface updates, even record movies and import SketchUp objects. And, with the updated 3D Flyover in Civil 2015, any surface edits made in CAD are automatically updated in the 3D view.

A highlight of Carlson Hydrology 2015 is the new command in Detention Pond Design, which brings together all the functions to model pre- and post-development conditions and enables users to run multiple rain events at the same time.

Carlson Civil and Hydrology are comprehensive, yet easy-to-master civil engineering software solutions. Both provide support for AutoCAD® 2015 and also work on AutoCAD versions 2007 and up.  All Carlson 2015 office software comes with the improved IntelliCAD® 8.0 built-in, which offers a CAD platform for no extra expense.

“Besides the focus on 3D features, the new Carlson Civil 2015 release delivers many customer-requested features. The routines to draw profile and cross section sheets especially have many upgrades,” explains David Carlson, V.P. of Development for Carlson Software. “Another notable, time-saving addition in both Civil and Hydrology is the ability to recall the toolbar status from previous versions so that users can quickly migrate their toolbar layout,” he adds.

In addition to Carlson Hydrology’s new rain runoff ability in Detention Pond Design, the newest version provides added support for checking unlimited pipe networks for collision conflict and improved Sewer Network Design with a preview option.

Carlson Civil provides the most robust automation and ease-of-use of any civil design solution available today, and it does dynamic updating without a single custom object. Carlson Hydrology allows full 3D road and lot design that feeds directly into flow calculations and drainage design. Offering a wide selection of “power” tools, these CAD-based software solutions enable users to increase their productivity as they create better road, site, and subdivision designs in less time.

Along with Carlson Civil and Hydrology for 2015, Carlson Software is also releasing the 2015 versions of Carlson Survey and Carlson GIS, which together with Civil and Hydrology make up the Carlson Civil Suite. Carlson Point Cloud, Carlson Mining, Carlson Construction, Carlson Natural Regrade, plus Carlson GeoTech, Carlson CADnet, Carlson Trench, and Carlson Construction (these latter make up the Takeoff Suite) all featuring their own industry-specific improvements, have also been released.
