A couple weeks ago, I had what some would call the perfect storm; a major deadline, crashing grading drawings, and managerial pressure to get it fixed yesterday. Trouble was, regardless of the series of commands I threw at the troublesome drawings, the errors remained, and the drawings continued to crash. In fact, there was a time in the troubleshooting process that I questioned if the AUDIT command actually did anything, or if it was simply a random number generator. Sometimes the number of errors went down, sometimes it went up, apparently the AUDIT command had become a mood indicator for Civil 3D. Long story short, this problem had The CAD Geek stumped (it happens from time-to-time).
Pressures mounting, I called some friends from both Autodesk and my reseller Avatech. I really have to give it to the folks at Avatech and Autodesk Subscription Support. Their combined insight and expertise made this a support ticket with a happy ending. Just how did we end up solving this problem?
