Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 SP2!!!

Hello everyone... In a continuing effort to provide high quality products, Autodesk has released Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2015 Service Pack 2 via Autodesk Application Manager, which fixes or addresses a variety of issues discovered by Autodesk's internal testing team and by customers using the Customer Error Reporting Utility.

Civil 3D and InfraWorks 360 Project!

Hi everybody... Well not everything can be about sharing tips, tricks and some very important news and workarounds... This time I would like to share a project that I am working on...
It is all done with Data from the Miami Dade County GIS website...
For management purposes of my model I changed some of the Application Options, like the 3D Graphics and the Model Generation to be set like this from the defaults...
But if you plan to do snapshots of you model, here is a side by side picture with different Application Option settings...
Simple changes like this will make a big difference on your snapshots... here is what I did to get the best quality...
You can also share your model and collaborate with others by creating a 3D scenario. 
A scenario is a presentation package featuring all or part of a model.  Create a scenario and share it in the cloud. Viewers stream scenarios to the InfraWorks 360 web viewer or the InfraWorks 360 iPad app.
Discuss online models, proposals and scenarios using Design Feed, make notes to yourself or share them with others.
I am happy to share my model with you, so feel free to let me know what you think...
You have been invited to view the 3D scenario SW 157th Ave, Miami - Scenario, created by Tatiana Machado using Autodesk InfraWorks 360.  
Autodesk InfraWorks 360 the best tool for collaboration... Have fun creating your models and Happy Holidays to all!!!

Autodesk InfraWorks 2015 Model Builder Security Hotfix

Hello everybody... Important hotfix for Autodesk InfraWorks 360 2015...
The search capability of InfraWorks Model Builder (preview) has stopped working. Please use the instructions on this page for Autodesk InfraWorks 2015 and Autodesk InfraWorks 360 to address this issue.
The fix applies to the July 2014 release (2015.2), where Model Builder (preview) displays an SSL error, or the geolocator stops working. If you have more than one release of Autodesk InfraWorks 2015 (i.e. any Beta version) installed on the same computer, the patch should be applied to each install directories.
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Close InfraWorks.
2. Open the directory where the Autodesk InfraWorks is installed (usually c:\Program Files\Autodesk\InfraWorks 360).
3. Rename “ssleay32.dll” and “libeay32.dll” to “ssleay32_OLD.dll” and “libeay32_OLD.dll”.
4. Save the Autodesk_InfraWorks_2015 OpenSSL_ModelBuilderHotFix.zip file, and extract the files from it. A directory named “Autodesk_InfraWorks_2015 OpenSSL_ModelBuilderHotFix” will be created.
5. Finally, copy the 2 files (“ssleay32.dll” and “libeay32.dll”) from under the extracted directory to the installation directory - these replace the ones you renamed earlier.
