Today, many resellers attended a webcast that described what will be available for us to refer to, and what is in the box (Civil 3D 2007), that can be used to learn, teach, and guide.
One segment of the webcast presented by Anthony Governanti, Technical Marketing Manager for Autodesk, was the "Wicked Cool Stuff" according to him.
The following is his list (in no particular order):
Text masking! Available in all labels!
Expressions – add calculations to any label
Reference text (that can use...)
General Note (object)
DWF Preview for Project Data
Grading Feature Line tools (3D polyline tools and more)
Grading that works!
---Inside corner cleanup
---Projection to surface
Graphical Corridor Editing
---National CAD Standards (NCS) based
---Extended to include Civil 3D specific objects
---Includes styles to replicate LDT output
Too much to list!
Although, much of this information has been discussed here and elsewhere, it was certainly very useful for me to see Anthony's highlight reel.
PS. I want to thank Anthony for his OK to use his list.
