AutoCAD Civil vs Carlson Intelicad
This topic has not been discussed since the last time. What is better for the surveyor, Civil 3d or Carlson Civil? We do siteplans with proposed vs existing contours, calculate volumes between said contours, and stormwater calculations. It feels like we are dipping into engineering. We also do the boundary work for the site plan. The projects are mostly Amish guys that want an at home business. The county has them going through site planning process for this. Which is the better software? We are currently using Carlson Survey OEM. I feel like it is not enough to do some of the volumes and stormwater calculations. I am also having issues creating proposed contours. I currently manipulate the contours individually by hand. This takes a long time. The stormwater calculations are done by my boss by hand. I know there is a better way. We are at a point we need to think about either switching to civil 3d or Carlson civil. Do we need to switch or will Carlson Survey handle what we need to do?
