Do you check out the available white papers for Civil 3D? They’re quite often full of very useful, detailed information. The last one I read was Using Autodesk Civil 3D for Hydrologic and Hydraulic Tasks, and I give it out to all my classes now.
If you’re a fan of the white papers, then you’ll like this news – there are now two new ones available on the Civil 3D Website – one on raster imagery, and another on enhanced Land XML support and functionality. Here’s a brief synopsis of each one:
Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 LandXML Support
LandXML interoperability is the preferred method of sharing civil engineering and survey data between users, software applications, and government agencies around the world. Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 provides the highest level of support for the entire LandXML-1.1 data model. This white paper details the new and expanded LandXML import/export functionality of Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 software, as well as changes from previous versions of Civil 3D.
