MAYSVILLE, Ky., U.S.A. (Sept. 14, 2011)— Carlson Civil 2012, just released, gives users enhanced 3D visualization, with added support for realistic 3D symbols including trees, people, vehicles and utilities, plus the ability to produce customized, more professional reports among its many additional improvements.
Carlson Civil, the comprehensive, yet easy-to-master civil engineering software solution, provides support in its 2012 release for AutoCAD® 2012 and comes with IntelliCAD® 7.0 built-in. This is as well as working on AutoCAD versions 2000 and up.
“We’ve made numerous improvements to Carlson Civil 2012 in addition to its new 3D aspects,” explains David Carlson, V.P. of Development for Carlson Software. “The new linkage of profile edits back to the sewer network model allows for design revisions from profile view, which was a top request from our users.
“For road work,” he notes, “we added the ability to break out cross section quantities by staging and also the reporting of unsuitable material for end areas.”
These improvements, combined with Carlson Civil’s new and improved Report Formatter, make for more customized and more impressive reports.
Carlson Civil provides the most robust automation and ease-of-use of any civil design solution available today. Offering a wide selection of “power” tools, the CAD-based software enables users to increase their productivity as they create better road, site, and subdivision designs in less time.
Along with Carlson Civil for 2012, Carlson Software is also releasing the 2012 versions of Carlson Survey, Carlson Hydrology, Carlson GIS, Carlson Point Cloud, Carlson Mining, Carlson Takeoff, and Carlson Natural Regrade, each featuring its own industry-specific improvements.
