This important video is an introduction to the fundamental principals, practices, and differences of the Map 3D data connections available in Civil 3D.
Jerry covers the essential How tos, workflows, and mechanics for the three mission critical forms of Map 3D data connections (Object Data, FDO, and DDE)
and what we might accomplish with them in simple tree survey examples.

A solid, substantive, and really fast review of all the Map 3D data essentials avialable in Civil 3D and/or the AutoCAD Map 3D Toolset.

Simple Map Attach and Queries remain one of the best, practical, and automated ways to move AutoCAD drawing objects from one drawing to another in a Civil 3D project.
For example - maybe we want to store Grading Optimization AutoCAD primitive objects separately and then deliver them into multiple scenario drawings easily.
