AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 Service Pack 1 is now available for download! This Service Pack includes all previous hotfixes for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013. It also includes the fixes included in AutoCAD 2013 Service Pack 1.1 and AutoCAD Map 3D 2013 Service Pack 1.
Thank you Autodesk! I have not installed it yet, but I'm looking forward to this fix -> "In drawings with a custom UCS, switching from the model tab to the layout tab will no longer reset model tab to isometric."
Service Pack 1 for AutoCAD 2013 and AutoCAD LT 2013, was pulled from distribution quickly after its release. It it now available for download again, rebranded as Service Pack 1.1. As always, be sure to download the correct version for your system (32-bit or 64-bit) and read the readme file
Update 2 for Civil 3D 2011 was released on June 30, 2011. You can find the download page here, along with the various language README files, which include a list of items addressed.
I was hoping this update fixed one particular bug, the one that causes the Prospector and Settings tab to go away after you run the ._PREVIEW command - but it does not. This is still an issue even after installing the update.
One thing to note: You must apply Update 1 before you can apply Update 2.
Lastly, to keep things interesting for us, after Update 2 is applied, the software will report that is is currently on "Version 3".
AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 Update 1 has been released. You can find the 32-bit and 64-bit downloads here. Over 40 Civil 3D issues have been addressed with this update and it includes the latest updates for AutoCAD and AutoCAD Map also.
In certain situations, you can install SP2 for Land Desktop 2008, and the program will report that SP2 is installed, but in fact it is not really installed. I have confirmed this with Autodesk support. However, the exact circumstances regarding how this occurred has not been determined.
So how can you check to see if SP2 has really been applied? According to Autodesk support, you can test for SP2 by looking at the version of this file: C:\Program Files\AutoCAD Civil 3D Land Desktop Companion 2008\AeccAlnSvrLoader.dll. (Your path may vary)
