AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 Fundamentals AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 ® www.SDCpublications.com Better Textbooks. Lower Prices. SDC PUBLICATIONS Fundamentals ® Visit the following websites to learn more about this book: Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org) 2–1 Chapter 2 Project Management In this chapter you learn about the various project structures that can be used inside of an AutoCAD® Civil 3D® project. Then you create a new project and learn how to move between different projects. Using data shortcuts, you practice creating references to AEC objects to share design data, which ensures that you always have the most up-to-date design data in the current model. This chapter contains the following topics: • AutoCAD Civil 3D Projects • Sharing Data • Using Data Shortcuts for Project Management 2–2 Project Management © 2014, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge® 2–3 2.1 AutoCAD Civil 3D Projects There are multiple ways of organizing AutoCAD Civil 3D project drawings. Three of the most common approaches are as follows: Single-Design Drawing Projects Since AutoCAD Civil 3D surfaces, alignments, and other AEC objects can be entirely drawing-based, you can have a single drawing file act as the repository for all design data. Realistically, this might only be feasible with the smallest projects and/or those worked on by only one person. The only external data would be survey databases, and possibly drawings containing plotting layouts that XREF the single design drawing. Multiple Drawings Sharing Data using Shortcuts This approach permits multiple survey and design drawings that share data. For example, a surface could exist in one drawing and an alignment in another. A third could contain a surface profile based on the alignment and terrain model, and all could be kept in sync with each other using Data Shortcuts. This approach is usually preferable to the single-drawing approach, because it permits more than one user to work on the project at the same time (in the different design drawings) and keeps the drawings at a more manageable size. Using data shortcuts is essential in larger projects to ensure that the regeneration time for drawings is at an acceptable speed. This approach does not create any external project data other than survey databases and XML data files that are used to share data between drawings. Once an object has been referenced into the drawing and the drawing has been saved, the object is saved in the drawing. Therefore, it only needs access to the source drawing for validation and synchronization purposes if the source object changes. This makes it easy to share drawings with others because it ensures that the referenced objects are displayed even if the source drawings are not available. Learning Objective • List the three different ways in which AutoCAD Civil 3D project drawings can be organized. AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 Fundamentals 2–4 © 2014, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge® Shortcuts tend to be efficient for projects with a small number of drawings and project team members. Since the XML data files that connect drawings must be managed manually, keeping a large number of drawings and/or people in sync with shortcuts can be cumbersome. It is highly recommended that you establish procedures to ensure that data is not unintentionally deleted or changed. You will also want to document these procedures very carefully. Multiple Drawings Sharing Data with Autodesk Vault The Autodesk® Vault program is a data and document management system (ADMS). It is used in conjunction with other Autodesk® applications in different industries. When working with the Autodesk Vault program, all project drawings, survey databases, and references are managed and stored inside an SQL-managed database. Autodesk Vault consists of user-level access permissions, drawing check-in/out, project templates, automated backups, data versioning, etc. These benefits are offset by the additional time required to manage and administer the database, and in some cases purchasing additional hardware and software. If you work on large projects with multiple design drawings or have many team members (more than 10), you might find that the Autodesk® Vault is the best way to keep those projects organized. Project Management © 2014, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge® 2–5 2.2 Sharing Data In the AutoCAD Civil 3D workflow, you can use two methods of project collaboration to share AutoCAD Civil 3D design data: Data Shortcuts and Vault references. Autodesk Vault and Data Shortcuts can be used to share design data between drawing files in the same project, such as alignment definitions, profiles, surfaces, pipe networks, and View Frames. They do not permit the sharing of profile views, assemblies, corridors, sample line groups, or other AutoCAD Civil 3D objects. Drawing sets using shortcuts typically use XREFs and reference other line work and annotations between drawings. Whether using Vault Shortcuts or Data Shortcuts, the process is similar. The example in Figure 2–1 shows the sharing of data in a project collaboration environment. The data is divided into three distinctive levels. Using either Data Shortcuts or Autodesk Vault, these levels can be accessed and contributed to, on a local or remote server or across a WAN. Figure 2–1 Learning Objective • List the ways in which teams can collaborate with each other and share design information within the AutoCAD Civil 3D software. AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 Fundamentals 2–6 © 2014, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge® 2.3 Using Data Shortcuts for Project Management Data Shortcuts can be used to share design data between drawing files through the use of XML files. Using Data Shortcuts is similar to using the Autodesk Vault software, but does not provide the protection of your data or the tracking of versions the way the Autodesk Vault software does. Data Shortcuts are managed using the Prospector tab in the Toolspace in the Data Shortcuts collection or in the Manage tab>Data Shortcuts panel, as shown in Figure 2–2. The shortcuts are stored in XML files within one or more working folders that you create. They can use the same folder structure as the Autodesk Vault software. This method simplifies the transition to using the Autodesk Vault software at a future time. Figure 2–2 Autodesk Certified Professional Objectives Topic: • Managing and Sharing Data Objectives: • Create a data sharing setup Learning Objective • Share design information with other members of the design team using data shortcuts. Project Management © 2014, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge® 2–7 Whether using the Autodesk Vault software or Data Shortcuts, the intelligent AutoCAD Civil 3D object design data can be consumed and used on different levels. However, this referenced data only can be edited in the drawing that contains the original object. As referenced data can be assigned a different style than those in the source drawing, you can separate the design phase (where drawing presentation is not critical) from the drafting phase (where drawing presentation is paramount). Therefore, after the styles have been applied at the drafting phase, any changes to the design have minimal visual impact on the completed drawings. Changing the name of a drawing file that provides Data Shortcuts or the shortcut XML file itself invalidates the shortcut. Although the Data Shortcuts Editor outside the AutoCAD Civil 3D software permits re-pathing if a source drawing moves, shortcuts might not resolve if the source drawing practice has changed. Update Notification If the shortcut objects are modified and the source drawing is saved, any drawings that reference those objects are updated when opened. If the drawings consuming the data referenced in the shortcuts were open at the time of the edit, a message displays to warn you of the changes, as shown in Figure 2–3. Figure 2–3 The following modifier icons help you to determine the state of many AutoCAD Civil 3D objects. The object is referenced by another object. In the Settings tab this also indicates that a style is in use in the current drawing. The object is being referenced from another drawing file (such as through a shortcut or Autodesk Vault reference). The object is out of date and needs to be rebuilt, or is violating specified design constraints. A project object (such as a point or surface) has been modified since it was included in the current drawing. You have modified a project object in your current drawing and those modifications have not yet been updated to the project. AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 Fundamentals 2–8 © 2014, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge® Figure 2–4 shows how the modifier icons are used with an AutoCAD Civil 3D object as it displays in the Prospector tab. Figure 2–4 To update the shortcut data, select Synchronize in the balloon message or right-click on the object in the Prospector and select Synchronize. Removing and Promoting Shortcuts Shortcut data can be removed from the Shortcut tree in the Prospector by right-clicking on it and selecting Remove, but this does not remove the data from the drawing. To do so, right-click on the object in the Prospector and select Delete. This removes the shortcut data from the current list, so that the item is not included if a Data Shortcut XML file is exported from the current drawing. You can also promote shortcuts, which converts the referenced shortcut into a local copy without any further connection to the original. You can promote objects by right-clicking on them in the Prospector and selecting Promote. eTransmit Data References Projects that use Data Shortcuts can be packaged and sent to reviewers, clients, and other consultants using the AutoCAD eTransmit command. With the eTransmit command, all of the related dependent files (such as XML files, XREFs, and text fonts) are automatically included in the package. This reduces the possibility of errors and ensures that the recipient can use the files you send them. A report file can be included in the package explaining what must be done with drawing-dependent files (e.g., XML, XREFs) so that they are usable with the included files. The Create Transmittal dialog box is shown in Figure 2–5. Project Management © 2014, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge® 2–9 Figure 2–5 Data Shortcut Workflow 1. In the Prospector tab, right-click on Data Shortcuts and select Set the Working Folder… 2. In the Prospector tab, right-click on Data Shortcuts and select New Data Shortcuts Folder… to create a new project folder for all of your drawings. 3. Create or import the data that you want to share in the source drawing and save it in the current working folder under the correct project folder. 4. In the Prospector tab, right-click on Data Shortcuts and select Associate Project to Current Drawing. 5. In the Prospector tab, right-click on Data Shortcuts and select Create Data Shortcuts. 6. Select all of the items that you want to share, such as surfaces, alignments, or profiles, and click . 7. Save the source drawing (and close as required). 8. Open, create, and save the drawing to receive the shortcut data. Expand the Data Shortcuts collection and the relevant object trees (Surfaces, Alignments, Pipe Networks, or View Frame Groups). 9. Highlight an item to be referenced, right-click and select Create Reference… Repeat for all of the objects as required. You are prompted for the styles and other settings that are required to display the object in the current drawing. AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 Fundamentals 2–10 © 2014, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge® 10.You might also want to add an XREF to the source drawing if there is additional AutoCAD® line work that you want to display in the downstream drawing. 11.The AutoCAD Civil 3D tools for Data Shortcuts are located in the Manage tab (as shown in Figure 2–6), and in the Prospector tab. Figure 2–6 Workflow Details • Set Working Folder: Sets a new working folder as the location in which to store the Data Shortcut project. The default working folder for Data Shortcut projects is C:\Civil 3D Projects. The default working folder is also used for Autodesk Vault projects and local (non-Vault) Survey projects. If you work with the Autodesk Vault software, local Survey, and Data Shortcut projects, you should have separate working folders for each project type for ease of management. • New Shortcuts Folder: Creates a new folder for storing a set of related project drawings and Data Shortcuts. • Create Data Shortcuts: Creates Data Shortcuts from the active drawing. Data Shortcuts are stored in the Shortcuts folder for the active project and used to create data references to source objects in other drawings. Each Data Shortcut is stored in a separate XML file. Advantages of Data Shortcuts • Data Shortcuts provide a simple mechanism for sharing object data, without the added system administration needs of the Autodesk Vault software. • Data Shortcuts offer access to an object's intelligent data while ensuring that this referenced data can only be changed in the source drawing. • Referenced objects can have styles and labels that differ from the source drawing. Project Management © 2014, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge® 2–11 • When you open a drawing containing revised referenced data, the referenced objects are updated automatically. • During a drawing session, if the referenced data has been revised, you are notified in the Communication Center and in the Prospector tab in Toolspace. Limitations of Data Shortcuts • Data Shortcuts cannot provide data versioning. • Data Shortcuts do not provide security or data integrity controls. • Unlike the Autodesk Vault software, Data Shortcuts do not provide a secure mechanism for sharing point data or survey data. • Maintaining links between references and their source objects requires fairly stable names. However, most broken references can easily be repaired using the tools in the AutoCAD Civil 3D software.
