NEW! Project Management Document

Newly added to the bottom of the Civil 3D Service Pack 3 page is a document (over 80 pages) titled:

"Project Management in Autodesk Civil 3D 2007".

This is a very comprehensive document prepared specifically for Service Pack 3. The introduction states:

"The content will appear in an updated form in the online User’s Guide for Autodesk Civil 3D 2008."

Sections include:
Transition from Land Desktop
Using External References
Managing Data Using Data Shortcuts
Managing Data Using Vault
Vault Best Practices
Migrating Old Autodesk Civil 3D Projects
Detaching a Drawing from a Project

This is a large and VERY helpful document.

In your opinion do individual sections of this document stand-alone or does each section build on earlier content? I am the only user of Civil 3D in a firm with four engineers, three of which concentrate mostly on structural. I doubt that I will ever use vault but will certainly use shortcuts again. I am hoping that I do not need to wade through the other material to get what I need.

There are absolutely segments that can be considered self-contained packets of information, separate from the rest.
