Happy New Year AutoCAD Civil 3D Help

Most years I spend the post-AU month of December at work on planned improvements to the Framework for AutoCAD Civil 3D. This year is no exception. More about that next time. I trust you recognize that this does not mean that any of us can afford to have…

A Business as Usual Attitude

Far from it. If this last couple of months tells us anything, it screams that the pace of change in Civil 3D Land is quicker. More will come at us from more directions. There’s more to learn about more things. Autodesk released updates to Vehicle Tracking, ReCap, and a second AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018.2 Update in just December. There will be another Infraworks 2018 update out any day now. See the link below to the Infraworks website section for the recent video about that.

The Framework Tool wizards weren’t sitting around either.

Get Ready to Get Ready

I didn’t expect December to be quite so busy with cadpilot.com website Civil 3D Help and Training updates. That wasn’t the case at all. We wrapped up a couple of important blog post series and a lot more. Here’s the December 2017 summary which reads like the table of contents to a pretty thick and up to date book of AutoCAD Civil 3D Help.
