Newly released, Carlson Civil 2017 provides enhanced Civil features and support for AutoCAD® 2017 and the upgraded IntelliCAD®8.2. Carlson Civil is a complete civil engineering software featuring ‘Fair Price. Full CAD. Free Support!’

Joining past focus on 3D features and enhanced collaboration options are a new Cut/Fill Movement Analysis command, which allows users to compare two surfaces and determine the optimized cut and fill for the site and provides reports by the distance moved, allowing users to analyze which equipment to use, such as dozers for shorter distances, shovel and trucks for longer distances.

Another top enhancement in Carlson Civil 2017 is the ability to create a curb ramp out of 3D polylines – the program adjusts the polylines to fit in the ramp to your specifications. Other top features that are in all Carlson 2017 releases include the Carlson Community for sharing files with other Carlson users; the new “Supersonic” 3D Viewer for loading surfaces that provides excellent graphic presentations; an improved Report Formatter; and a new command for importing MSWord documents and dynamically link them to drawings.
