Discussing New Features in AutoCAD 2018 with KaDe King and David Cohn
In their “AutoCAD 2018 New Features” Skype chat, CADLearning’s Senior Content Manager David Cohn, and U.S. CAD’s Senior Technical Specialist KaDe King, shared their favorite new updates to the AutoCAD 2018 release.
Okay, well this is David Cohn with 4D Technologies. I want to welcome you to this webcast. I’m here with KaDe King. KaDe King works with U.S. CAD. She’s based in Utah, and I work with 4D Technologies. As I said, I’m actually based in Bellingham, Washington. I’ve been using AutoCAD since version 1.4. the first version I actually saw was version 1.2. I’ve seen a lot of changes in AutoCAD over the years. We’re here to talk to you today about the updates in AutoCAD 2018, and I’ll stop talking for a second so KaDe can say hello and introduce herself.
Hi, this is KaDe King. I’m with U.S. CAD. This is actually my thirtieth anniversary of using AutoCAD this year. I started in AutoCAD 2.5, so it’s a big anniversary for me. 2018, it all kind of goes together.
BIM is rapidly becoming more and more prevalent in the AEC industry. As this growth occurs, implementing 3D laser scanning can help designers and engineers process more information and create smoother workflows for a project.
In Civil 3D, the basic building blocks for every project are surfaces. Surfaces are extremely important to the success of your project, and knowing how to create and edit them efficiently can help achieve your project goals faster.
Civil 3D is obviously built on AutoCAD and has Map 3D in it as well. It appears that the Map 3D side gets ignored as most users figure that if they are not doing anything with GIS, they can’t use any of these commands. In this post, I will discuss three of what I consider to be the most useful Map Commands in Civil 3D.
At the upcoming Infrastructure Tuesday webinar on July 11th, U.S. CAD Solutions Consultant Ron Couillard will be giving a first-hand look at what’s new in Civil 3D 2018. In this video, Ron gives a sneak peak at one of the new features he’ll be discussing in the webinar.
At first glance, I thought AutoCAD 2019 seemed light on new features. But then I heard about One AutoCAD. Check out my conversation with CADLearning’s Senior Content Manager David Cohn about the new release and what it means for AutoCAD users.
Happy new year from the Infrastructure Universe! Autodesk has recently released a few updates for various softwares. I also have some really cool videos that show some helpful tips & tricks for Civil 3D. Read on for all the updates this month.
In June 2011, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) selected Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D software for road and high design projects statewide. The agency has announced that all new projects, starting July 1, 2014, shall be designed using AutoCAD Civil 3D. Click here to read more about Caltrans’ plans to move to AutoCAD Civil 3D.
The BIM Elephant returns, asking the popular question, “where is my ROI from using BIM?” My colleague Damon Socha and I dive in offering a different perspective.
Since July 31, 2016, Autodesk is no longer selling new subscriptions or perpetual licenses for Design & Creation Suites. In their place, three new industry collections were introduced to provide you value that well exceeds the premium suites. Here are 5 things you need to know about the switch.
In our increasingly connected world, effective “collaboration” becomes more critical to businesses everywhere. But what does collaboration mean for the construction industry? Here are some ways that companies in the construction industry are collaborating to improve project outcomes.
Adopting BIM isn’t just about taking the information from blueprints (and anything that might be stapled to them) and putting them on a computer. BIM allows for cross-site and cross-team collaboration and real-time updates to ALL your project documentation. Here are 3 collaboration trends happening in the building and construction industry to keep an eye on this year.
In the October 10th Infrastructure Tuesday webinar, Nick Harper discussed four ways that you can coordinate data between Revit and Civil 3D. Read on to learn how you can share your project data in a meaningful way.
Question: When managing a BIM 360 Glue project, there are two types of administrators: Host and Project. What are the differences between the two?
Expert Solution from Heidi Boutwell, CADLearning’s Infrastructure Content Manager: The role of a Glue user dictates what projects they have access to and their level of access.
