AutoCAD® Civil 3D® Survey Fix 2013 Update

Hello everyone!

I know that many of you have been eagerly (and patiently) awaiting an updated version of my survey fix tool. Sorry it took so long, but here it is! 🙂

AutoCAD® 2013 has moved on to the .NET framework 4.0, which means this project needed to be recompiled under the new framework. Autodesk have also spent some time re-engineering their products, and have spread many of the required references to a new file. This means that when developing you’ll be mainly juggling references to the files AcMgd.dll, AcDbMgd.dll, and now the new file AcCoreMgd.dll, which I have had to make reference to in this project.

Here’s the new version of the survey fix:


Don’t forget the command is cunningly named “SURVEYFIX”, so just pop that into the command line to run the tool.

If you want a more detailed explanation of this tool, read my previous article which introduces it to you.

These things have a tendency to need the odd crease ironed out, so if you have any problems let me know, and I’ll see what I can do.

That’s all for now,


P.S., as always I’d like to encourage you to subscribe if you haven’t already. And if you’re feeling particularly helpful, tell a friend about my website… I’m determined to break 500 subscribers before the year is out! 🙂

  1. I’m sorry Will, but I’m using Civil 3D® 2013 and AutoCAD_Project_SurveyFix.dll isn’t loading. No error message or any response when I use netload, but then I get “Unknown command SURVEYFIX” when I try to run it.

    I used to use your old version using VBA, which has saved me on many occasions, but am struggling with this upgrade.

  2. Ignore my last comment!
    I fixed it, I had to install the .NET framework 4.0 seperately, which was not obvious but now your tool works brilliantly. I look forward to using the improved interface, and would like to take this opertunity to say that in my opinion this tool is one of the most powerful tools I’ve ever come across. Well done.

  3. Hi Will

    Thanks for this update.

    A colleague has downloaded this update for Civil 3D® 2013 but wouldn’t work. He’s got .NET Framework 4.5.1 installed.

    It does however work on C3D 2011 on the same machine.

    Any advice on this.
