Configure GeoSuite for AutoCAD/Civil3D 15.2

Trimble Novapoint GeoSuite Toolbox supports AutoCAD/Civil3D 2017, but for the moment this is not supported by the installation program. (up to version 15.2.2)

To use these Autodesk products in GeoSuite Toolbox You have to perform a manual configuration.

Before we start - check the properties for the shortcut You will use to start AutoCAD/Civil3D. Look for the path and filename to start AutoCAD/Civil3D - compare the picture below…

After installation of GeoSuite Toolbox - perform tha manual configuration by following these steps:

  1. Open GeoSuite Toolbox and choose Settings→Configuration file
  2. Look for section [SYSTEM]
  3. There is a number of parameters that should be set for use of AutoCAD/Civil3D
  4. Set the parameters shown below to corresponding values of Your AutoCAD/Civil3D installation:
