Recently Cadapult announced the publication of its new edition:
Digging Deeper Into AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011
416 pages organized in 7 chapters and a CD that includes the exercises developed in each section, under the leadership of Rick Ellis. In short, a great acquisition for anyone who wants to learn Civil 3D well and increase their repertoire of reference documents.
A great book, which adds to the list of manuals of AutoDesk that this company has been developing in the field of Geospatial, specifically AutoCAD Map 3D, Land Desktop and Civil 3D.
It would be a waste of this post, if I do not take advantage to promote a series of free tutorials that Cadapult has available on their page. Most are brief tips that are born from the courses they teach and that while they serve to demonstrate the quality of their services, they complement the collective knowledge that now implies to say how we did it to learn more.
Of the best, the tips to improve the performance of Civil 3D, among which mention the purging of unused styles, the optimization of labeling styles and the use of Clip boundaries On surfaces.
Here is a short list, although it is broader in each section. It is in English, for the purposes of this article I am showing the list translated into Spanish, so that they go there and see it with their own eyes.
