WisDOT's Thoughts

I first saw a reference to this document at Louisa Holland's Blog "Civil 3D for Beginners" (Thank You Lou). I found it very interesting and thought that others might think so as well.

This 4 page report summarizes WisDOT's selection of AutoCAD Civil 3D as their design software replacement for the future.

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 Documents

I ran across these today on the Autodesk website Civil 3D product pages. These are the first of many new bits of information that are becoming available.

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 Product Brochure (6 pages)

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 Questions and Answers (13 pages)

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 New Features Workshop

Hey just found tons of 2009 documents (lots to read here e.g. Getting Started Guide, User Guide, Tutorials, and my personal favorite, Best Practices Guide, etc.).

I hope this will help those of you that have been curious.

AU Needs U!

It is that time of year again. The 16th Autodesk University (AU) will be held again this year at the Venetian Resort Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada in November.

Currently, the event staff are accepting proposals from potential presentors. Anyone who wishes to submit a proposal to present a class for Autodesk University 2008 can do so by clicking on the title of this post.

AU is an outstanding event to learn, network, and to help advance our collective industries. If you feel that you have technical abilities combined with communication skills you should definitely consider submitting one or more proposals. Most presenters that I have talked to mention how very rewarding presenting at AU is.

The collective knowledge in our industry is growing in leaps and bounds. The number of civil engineering companies looking for AutoCAD Civil 3D knowledge is probably growing faster. The need for instructors willing to share that knowledge is substantial. Please take a moment to consider it.

Proposal Guidelines and Resources can be found here.

The deadline to submit is April 27 2008.
