In C3D-R2012 -programs I used


Imports Autodesk.Civil.Land.DatabaseServices

Imports Autodesk.Civil.Land.DatabaseServices.Styles

Imports Autodesk.Civil.PipeNetwork.DatabaseServices

Imports Autodesk.Civil.PipeNetwork.DatabaseServices.Styles


Now (in C3D-R2013) I get the error-message:

'Autodesk.Civil.Land.DatabaseServices' doesn't contain any public member or cannot be found. Make sure the namespace or the type is defined and contains at least one public member. Make sure the imported element name doesn't use any aliases.


How do I have to change this in R2013 ?

In Civil 3D 2013 .NET API, namespaces have been simplified. Please refer this blog post -


So, you just need to remove the "Land", "PipeNetwork" etc. -


Imports Autodesk.Civil.DatabaseServices

Imports Autodesk.Civil.DatabaseServices.Styles


Hope this helps.
