Project Silverstar for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 is a technology preview that provides cloud-based optimization for vertical road alignments. Project Silverstar uses a new numerical cloud algorithm that uses modern mathematical optimization techniques to find optimal profiles for given horizontal alignments.

Based on user feedback, the latest update includes the following corrections:

  • Offset values are now set for offset profiles if the profile name contains non-ANSI characters.
  • The default min-slope value is now set at 0.3%.
  • A tooltip is displayed if the min-slope value is greater than 2%.
  • The position of the About button is now correct while resizing the wizard.

I am beginning to sound like a broken record.

 

Based on user feedback, the latest update includes the following corrections:

  • Server-side improvements with respect to the solving time
  • More accurate volumes when using offsets (using fixed sample line distances and simple assemblies on the server side)
  • Updated User Manual
  • Updated Tutorial 2 Sample Drawing

Thanks to everyone for the feedback provided. Keep it coming.
