Pay the piper and get back on subscription!  If you boss won't pay the price then everytime you FE tell him that was fixed..... with a service pack for 2011......  :smileywink:

I didn't realize dragging a grading region grip or adding a transition was stupid. Now I know what's been my problem all along!

I apologize for high-jacking this thread. Please speak to the grading stability in the following thread.

Was that intended to be snark Neil, or are you trying to be insulting?

To Answer PDX271 "

"How long ago was the benckmark test?"

 

It may have been 2 to 3 yrs ago, Both GEOPAK and InRoads far outscored C3D... Interestingly as far as you think C3D has come in those 3  yrs, the last Benchmark where they competed by themselves there score was virtually the same.

 

If you search hard enough on the web you can find this information

 

Bill...Been busy,  sorry I missed you at the MNDOT Survey Conference up here iat breezy Point... Im sure you would have liked to see my Civil select series 3 preview... Incidently, Microstation SS3 was released yesterday, I know you all were looking forward to working with your 2012 C3D drawings in a stable platform (Microstation)

 

All the best

No offense intended but I take exception to your comment about grading. Apparently they work well for some but not others. I don't think it is due to stupidity on the part of the users. Gradings still have problems.

Is this deja vu? Starting to remind me of Eagle point a few years ago!  Mike the light at the end of the tunnel is actually the light on the front of the C3D locomotive!

 

Mike even if worst case Bentley is able to hold on to the remaining DOT market we still have just about everything else in the Government field! Circle the wagons Mike! In a couple weeks we move the bar up again with 2013! Competition is good, fair competition is better! 

 

How fast can you design an intersection?

 

Still havn't answer my "how many weeks/months of training is necessary!", how many local colleges teach Geopak....  so many foolish questions we have!

Intersection using new civil cells... about 15 seconds... send me you email Ill send you a video.

 

Maybe you want to talk parking lots... or storm basins... site design in general, and hey surveyors up keep telling me C3D is not handling us survey feet correctly.. (Sinc can you comment ?)...

 

And Bill your leaving out all the major engineering firms in the country using our software on every major infrastructure project... what software was really used for Zoo Park ?

Nice marketing... Funny no road designs in the "Lead the way marketing video"

 

Will this mean yet another file format change for C3D? MicroStation SS3 uses the same V8 format put in place 12 years ago.
