The OpenDesign Alliance expands its Autodesk compatibility by adding support for Civil 3D. The new C3Ddirect library creates, displays, and edits Civil 3D custom objects; it's compatible with releases 2007 and 2008. Due to ship by year's end, but announced today, during Autodesk University week.
The organization of Autodesk competitors already has similar libraries for handing DWG, ADT, and MicroStation DGN. Hmm.... ADT and Civil 3D today; MDT, etc "tomorrow"?
