AutoCAD Civil 3D Training

I am currently attending AutoCAD Civil 3D Fundamentals training at Mid-West CAD, located in Lee's Summit, Missouri. Several years ago I took Revit Architecture training there and was very pleased, so I was excited to go back. I teach AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Revit, and CREO Parametric, but have yet to journey into the civil space. I recently had to find a new part-time instructor to teach the Civil Drafting course that we offer at Hutchinson Community College. I am excited about the new instructor, and I am sure he is going to do a great job. However, I want to make sure that I can step in if he ever needs a substitute.

 AutoCAD Civil 3D is such a different creature than the other applications I have used. After 20 years of using CAD software, I can pick up most drawing applications and figure out how to get started. We are already halfway through the first day of training, and I have yet to draw a single line! There are so many settings to keep track of, and we are working with imported GIS data so far. I find this fascinating, but I am used to starting with drawing tools so I am learning to adapt.

 Are there any new Civil 3D users out there? Any advice for me?

  2. What's up now? I think you had a great time. By the way, MachineBuilder allows you to design and order directly from your browser and try Free cloud-CAD for details. Thanks for the head up!
