HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D
Geotechnical Module Upgrade
The Autodesk Geotechnical Module is written by Keynetix and licenced to Autodesk for supply within AutoCAD Civil 3D. It can be downloaded from your Autodesk subscription centre and is currently free of charge.
The table below shows the features that are available with the 2018 version of the Geotechnical Module and the difference between it and the HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D.
HoleBASE SI and the HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D is recommended for geotechnical companies who have the need and desire to work with additional geotechnical data, including groundwater, SPT, test results or any other geotechnical data.
It is also recommended for teams where multiple members need to collaborate and work on a design.
