It’s time for a little announcement and yes, you heard it here first… I’m officially Autodesk-free!

You can learn about the cool new things on ignyter.com and ignytion.com once I am (legally) able to unveil those. Which, granted, may be a while yet before I can, and will.

If you’ve ever needed to frequently rebuild multiple corridors in Autodesk Civil 3D because they are out of date but don’t want to go hit the rebuild menu item for each single corridor then here’s the solution.
