3D Civil Crash Course

Jim Clayton

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I have a new job opportunity lined up early next week for a Civil/Structural position. There’s a lot of emphasis on 3d and I’ve been drafting in 2d almost exclusively for the past five plus years. I know how to draft in 3d but I look like a total noob when doing it and I have the same level of confidence that I did when I got out of school...roughly 3%. I feel like a fraud that will be unmasked at any moment. Does anyone have a line on some crash courses to get my skill level up over the next few days? Please and thank you.

I don't do a lot in 3d but brush up on the not so obvious, rotate3d and setting UCS to 3d planes. Extrude along 3d paths doesn't always work the way you want.


Others here will suggest.

Thanks for the tips.  I will give these a shot.  A friend is trying to get me the gig and he knows 3d isn't my strong suit, but I'd still rather not look like a total noob when I go in there.  I appreciate the help.
