Eagle Point Software Corporation to Offer Compatible Solutions to AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 Software

DUBUQUE, Iowa, April 20, 2010 – Eagle Point Software Corporation today announced it will offer compatible solutions to Autodesk’s AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 software for the building design, infrastructure, and construction industries.

"We are excited to be able to quickly support the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 release in our portfolio of add-on products that include Pinnacle Series, Data Reduction, and Surveyors' Companion,” explains Steve Biver, Civil Product Line Manager at Eagle Point. "These products take advantage of the new features of AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011, such as 64-bit support. Our add-on products help ensure successful implementations and better use of Autodesk's software, while giving our clients a competitive advantage."

The Eagle Point Pinnacle Series® add-on technology dramatically improves an organization’s ability to implement AutoCAD Civil 3D and adopt new Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows. Using links to execute the right commands, the surveying, grading, roadway design, pipe layout, and plan set preparation workflows guide users to complete work faster while consistently following the organization’s standards and best practices.

Data Reduction utilizes direct links with several supported data collectors and data collector formats to download raw instrument and coordinate data. Whether the user is downloading directly from a collector or importing a file from a PC, Data Reduction places AutoCAD Civil 3D COGO points and automated linework into the drawing.

A set of tools that streamline the survey workflow, Surveyors' Companion leverages proven surveying technology to enable organizations to comfortably and productively move to AutoCAD Civil 3D software. Surveyors' Companion interacts with native point, parcel, surface, alignment, and profile data.

"We are glad to have an Autodesk Developer Network partner like Eagle Point Software announce the release of its portfolio of companion products for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011," explains Jim Quanci, Director of the Autodesk Developer Network. "Eagle Point's expertise in the Civil Engineering markets has allowed them to leverage the new functionality in our 2011 version and enhance it with tools that help our clients take advantage of BIM."

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 software, the building information modeling (BIM) solution for civil engineering, helps teams deliver higher-quality transportation, land development, and environmental projects faster. Its model-based approach helps keep project information coordinated while delivering higher-quality documentation and visualizations. AutoCAD Civil 3D helps users gain the competitive advantage of BIM to deliver more innovative project solutions.  Key new features include:

  • Scalability and performance improvements, as well as an optimized 64-bit version of Civil 3D
  • Tools to better manage the creation and editing of corridors
  • Enhanced superelevation functionality that provides a dynamic link to the alignment and flexible editing options
