I thought there was a mobil viewer for IW models, is it hidden in the 360 mobile app or something?

"As of yet..."

So does that mean an Android app will be available in the foreseeable future?

I imagine they'll be working on this to the detriment of bug fixes in Civil 3D...:smileyfrustrated:

Actually, the pursuit of DOT's is the thing in the way of other stuff.

Its sad because instead of fixing the core issues with C3d that make production difficult, they instead try to find new customers who supposedly will be ok with the product as is.

Until they address these things, C3D will be a shadow trying to solidify:

1) Share items via external database instead of fragile xref or heavy, chatty and odd data reference objects.

2) Make data detachment fail gracefully. Callouts must stay as they were until parent data link is re-established.

3) Treat pipes as based on alignments and profiles like roads. Chopping up pipes at PI's/PVI's is not civil engineering, and never was.

4) Realize that what designers need most is a published schema of various real civil objects, so editing interfaces can be re-used accross Autodesk products. Instead every team wants to re-invent the road, pipe, structure...Do not make things so fancy they cannot be described by a schema and shared between products. Forget pipe rules if necessary at start.

 

They get those fixed, and the private development world business will eclipse DOT seats like, well the sun does to the moon.

 

I personally feel Autodesk does not have the vision to solve these issues before other parties do. Pursuing DOT's and not fixing certain bugs and things you would think any vendor would jump on, is unfortunate for both sides IMO. The business leaders at Autodesk seem to be overwhelmed by their own claim to BIM and do not realize the foundation needs to be fixed.

I suppose new customers = $$$$$$$

Civil 3D and BIM should never appear in a sentence together unless separated by "is not"....:smileywink:

You noticed the BIM descrepency too? :smileyhappy:

Its not just new customers that create income, its keeping existing.

Autodesk must be holding their breath on this BIM issue.

I'm not far from specializing my alignment program so it makes what I consider BIM qualifying objects.

You don't have to make things super connected and smart, just have the ability to show in 3d, decent editing interface, and properties/behavior civil engineers would want.

I hear people say every agency is different and country, it does not matter. We all use alignments and profiles to describe things, and the stuff I have now would cover any design situation I know of in the US, except things involving spirals.

I need to group stuff better and allow updating of callouts though. Updating is not just making things dynamic, its making checking tools to help the user catch non-dynamic stuff or things that use wrong formulas. You fool a designer and they go back to hand drafting on the computer - uh, wonder how many firms do that given the C3D platform. A whole lot.
