Our Civil Immersion blog turns one year old this week! To celebrate, I’m giving you two Tools for Tuesday. :)
They go together like “soup and sandwich”. In short, they help us quickly organize geometry within our model.
Let me explain….
When it comes to display order on objects, I’m sure we can all agree that Hatch Objects should always be in the back and Text Objects should always be in the front. The problem is that we don’t always create geometry in an order where this happens naturally. As a result, we have to make corrections along the way. (or worse yet, make a ton of fixes at the end) In other words... we don't want this..
Wouldn’t it be great if we could just tell Civil 3D (or any AutoCAD based application) to adjust the visibility of our model such that all of the Hatch is in the Back and all of the Text is in the front? Essentially, we want this instead...
Yes it would be great and we already have two simple commands that will take care of it!
Check out the video below to see how they work.
