Charlotte Water Engineering drawings are developed in and based on 2011 AutoCAD® Civil 3D. At present Charlotte Water Engineering will only accept drawings saved as the 2010 AutoCAD® file type which is used in AutoCAD® 2010 and 2011. 2010 AutoCAD® file types are preferred when possible, and 2007 AutoCAD® file types should only be used as a last resort. 2007 AutoCAD® file types were used in the AutoCAD® 2007, 2008, and 2009 versions.

Engineering firms not using AutoCAD® Civil 3D may experience warnings or errors when using these files.

The Figure Database files (FDB) were developed and intended for use in 2011 AutoCAD® Civil 3D. These files will not open or display any information in standard AutoCAD® or AutoCAD® viewers. The Font (SHX) files have been specifically developed for Charlotte Water Engineering templates. Both of these file types, along with the Civil 3D templates (DWT), should be downloaded and installed by a knowledgeable Civil 3D technician.
