    Default User guides for Civil 3D: Roads and pipes

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I'm just learning Civil 3D 2007, and it has some serious changes from map 2005. I'm trying to get a handle on the road and pipes bits, and was wondering if anyone has a better tutorial than the one found in the user guide/getting started guide I got from Autocad?

    Regards
    Tor

    You might want to consider purchasing a book. The one I have in mind is:

    Harnessing AutoDesk Civil 3D 2007 by Phillip J. Zimmerman.

    It can be purchased through Amazon.com for approx. $40 (U.S.).

    OK...here's another option I came across by searching on the terms "Civil 3D" and "tutorial".

    http://civil3drocks.blogspot.com/200...or-trying.html

    Take a look. Hope it is of some use.
