Drawing file size and speed is important to all of us. With larger projects, it can be difficult to manage file size. In this class, we will look at ways to manage file organization so you can maintain smaller drawings that are more efficient. We will talk about best practices and general guidelines for things like: when should you use 2 corridor drawings for an alignment, or how many parts is too many for one utility drawing. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D.
