I'm missing workspaces. I open the AutoCAD Civil3D 2013 shortcut, but the only workspaces available to me are the Drafting & Annotation, Basic 3D, 3D Modeling and AutoCAD Classic.
Unfortunately, none of these allow me to create surfaces, alignments or profiles. The Create Design panel just doesn't exist in these workspaces.
Is there any way to get the correct workspaces? Or add the features I need into the workspaces available to me?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sounds like maybe your CUIX is hosed, the WS might have been deleted?
Have you went into the CUI command to see?
Maybe you could reset or restore you CUIX file.
I tried the "Reset CUIX" command and it did wipe out my workspace customizations (back to the default settings), but it did not give me a Civil 3D workspace.
I have also looked for the tools that should be available in the Civil 3D workspace, but they aren't in the customize workspace dialog.
Open AutoCAD. Go to Options command. Profile tab, select <<C3D Imperial>> and press Set Current.
If that doesn't help, run a Repair Installation.
Okay, so we found a solution:
Under Options - Files - Customization Files - Main Customization File
Browse to Autodesk/C3D 2013/enu/Support/C3D.cuix to select that cuix file as the main customization.
This will give access to the Civil 3D workspace.
Just found this thread searching because I did a reset of the <<C3D_Imperial>> profile in 2013 c3d (Infrastructure design suite) no separate vanilla cad install in play here and it got rid of my Civil 3D workspace as an option in "workspace switching" under that profile.
The file path in my case had been reset to C:\Users\brubble\appdata\roaming\autodesk\c3d 2013\enu\support\acad
Browsing to Autodesk/C3D 2013/enu/Support/C3D.cuix as suggested fixed it and repopulates the path to
Momentarily got the "The Ribbon does not have any tabs or panels currently" message but selecting the Civil 3d workspace restored the ribbon.
