Shift in EECast Schedule

Since Jason is teaching Core Concepts this week in the mornings, and the EECast is scheduled to start at 11 AM our time (Central), there would seem to be a bit of conflict with him discussing point clouds during the EECast this week. Never fear dear readers, we have a plan! In a bold move (ok, in just a scheduling move,) I’m covering What’s New with Data Shortcuts in 2009.

In a quick hour, we’ll review the changes to using Data Shortcuts in C3D 2009. We’ll look at the Project Template, the Working Folder, the Shortcuts folder and the mechanics of using Data Shortcuts as part of your actual project. Additionally, we’ll look at the new Data Shortcuts Editor to repath your in-place shortcuts to new information as it’s available. Take a shortcut to 2009 with this nuts and bolts EECast.

See you then!

Of course, currently Vault has its place, especially in larger engineering firms. Civil3D 2009 has changed the way to work with Data Shortcuts that has really made it a competitor in the data management arena.
