Civil 3D 2024 – Import Styles

SHARE

There are many styles in Civil 3D. It is a painstaking process to set all of them up, and this is usually done by a BIM/CAD Manager. There are typically 3 places you need to use to set up standards. One is the Drawing Standards.

There is a lot that you can set up here. Coordinates, Object Layers, Abbreviations and Ambient Settings.

Edit Feature Settings. This is across the Civil 3D “feature” – e.g. general, point, surface, etc. – you need to set the style for.

This is where you control the style at the most granular level.

You can leverage the standards available for your country by installing a country kit. After that you must fine tune your template to suit your company.

What if you have an existing drawing but you need to adjust the drawing to use the standards and styles available in another drawing? In that case, transfer the standards. You will find that on the Manage tab.

This is a great help, but it is not a replacement for the convenience of being able to start from a template. Use a template if you can, then import styles as you need.
