Civil 3D night Thursday, 2/19/2015 – Bellingham AutoCAD User Group

Managing AutoCAD Civil 3D Data with Data Shortcuts and External References

BAUG welcomes back Rick Ellis of CADapult Software Solutions. Rick will show us how to efficiently manage your data in AutoCAD Civil 3D, while at the same time improving performance and workflows. We will be shown the step-by-step processes of creating and working with data shortcuts, as well as discuss the concepts and options that you have in AutoCAD Civil 3D for breaking projects apart into smaller, more manageable, pieces while keeping the data linked together and dynamic. Rick will also cover using external references in AutoCAD Civil 3D to efficiently manage data that is not available through data shortcuts.You also will learn to use data shortcuts together with external references to improve your workflow and allow multiple people to work on a project at the same time while all of the projects data stays linked and up to date.
