Every open a Civil 3d drawing and begin creating an object and notice that the layer that you need to place an object like a FG surface is missing? What tools do you have? Check out a little tip after the jump.
I am in the middle of importing the EG surface from a data reference into the grading drawing. I’ve selected create surface Reference – but the Surface Layer is showing as Layer 0. Oops – the draftsman purged the layer or maybe this is an older drawing.
I guess I could exit, jump to Design Center and drag the layer, or I can click new and create it from the CAD Standards Manual, if I can find it.
Hey, Drawing1.dwg actually has a use! Be sure the set your QNew to your Civil 3d template and leave it open! Civil 3d is MDI-aware.
