A few additions to Surface settings may just make the lives of you and your co-workers a bit easier in Civil 3D 2010. Read more after the jump.
Rebuild Automatic by Default
This one may may cause a bit of debate, but whether you think it’s a good idea or not, you can now set up Civil 3D so that new surfaces are set to Rebuild Automatic by default. The setting is found by right-clicking the Surface collection of the Settings tab and selecting Edit Feature Settings. Under the new Surface Defaults tree, you’ll find a single setting entitled Default Rebuild – automatic which you simply set to Yes or No.

New Weeding, Supplementing, etc. Defaults
You can now preset a series of defaults related to weeding, supplementing and other factors associated with adding breaklines and contour data to a surface. These settings are found by accessing Command Settings under Surfaces and modifying the settings for AddSurfaceBreaklines and AddSurfaceContours. Here you’ll find a new Add Data Options tree with additional settings.
