August’s Post of the Month

Thanks to the great team of authors at, this place continues to thrive without much help from me. I think all the readers out there appreciate their shared knowledge, and I hope you the reader will continue to add to the conversation by commenting on posts that interest or spark some new ideas for you.

Each month, I offer up a small prize for the post that I think is the post of the month. I tend to like the posts that spark some debate, and love the ones that find ways to make C3D do things it’s not really designed to do. With that in mind, Jonathan’s post on encasing pipes is the August post of the month. Go check it out if you missed it, there’s some great abuse of the software right there.

Do you think you can win the post of the month? We’re always looking for new authors! Leave me a comment here, full name obviously, and let’s talk. You don’t have to write often, you just have to be willing to share your brilliance with the community. September already has some great entrants, keep up the excellent work!

  1. Thanks James! Also thanks to all the other authors that are so willing to share their knoweledge of Civil 3D. Like James has mentioned in the past. “If you want to learn something, teach it.” You’ll be amazed at what kind of ideas and needs that come up by your students and other users.
    Keep sharing your knowledge with others. Also, use your imagination!

    “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” Albert Einstein

    Stayed tuned to Civil 3D for more innovative ideas that all the authors are willing to share.
