improvements over the COGO Editor that was included in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016 Productivity

Transit, Crandall, and Grant Line adjustment methods. Update COGO points and traverse
geometry within the drawing.

projects. All of this content was created in Autodesk Subassembly Composer and can be edited
and expanded to meet your individual or organizational needs. Not that there are separate
metric and imperial libraries and detailed Help that you can access to learn about the behavior
of each subassembly.
