Are you a CAD manager who is responsible for maintaining and managing numerous software applications, one of which is AutoCAD Civil 3D software—even though you might not consider yourself an AutoCAD Civil 3D software power user? AutoCAD Civil 3D software is much more than just AutoCAD software for civil/survey users. It has many traits and features that not only make it powerful, but can also bring unique needs and challenges to the CAD manager. The great news is that these challenges are not hard to overcome once you understand the reasons behind them. In this class we will discuss managing templates, styles, and settings, which can be the biggest obstacle to success with AutoCAD Civil 3D. The class will also explore data compatibility and translation, output options, and different approaches to training. Don’t miss this chance to learn ways to more effectively manage AutoCAD Civil 3D software within your CAD system.
Parametric design tools aren’t just for programs like Inventor software, Revit software, or AutoCAD Civil 3D software; there is also a set of parametric drawing tools that you can use to create dynamic relationships and constraints between objects in AutoCAD software. The parametric drawing tools will revolutionize the way that you draw and edit objects in AutoCAD software. This class will introduce you to parametric drawing in AutoCAD software by using both geometric and dimensional constraints to add intelligence to your objects. You will learn how using Auto Constrain and Inferred Constraints can help you quickly add constraints and change your process from drafting to modeling. If you’ve ever wanted geometry in your drawing to update based on changes that you’ve made to other objects, or if you’ve wanted to type a new value into a dimension and have the object update based on this new value, this class is for you.
