I have just published a new series of video's showing how to create a profile using straight AutoCAD and AutoLISP. It uses a few lisps I've gathered over the last year or two on the inet, one of them having been posted on cadtutor some time ago.

 

Please watch, review and rate this series if you don't mind.

Yes I see that. It appears Autodesk totally removed it from their site for some reason. If you need it I think I may have saved the .pdf's at work. I'll look into that and email them to you if you like.

I may get time to do more in the future, but it could be a while. In the meantime check out the free tutorials on Prime Services site or buy the Pirate 3d series. I haven't got those yet, but I want to. This is the guy that got me started with C3d and he's real good.

 

You could also look into the Autodesk Courseware for Civil 3d.

 

There are also free tips and tutorials on caddigest.com as well as Avatech.

I saw that. I subscribed to yours too in case you do some videos. I also added you as a friend.

Thanks! And please review and rate the video's to help them increase in the search results. Sooner or later I'll get more put on there and maybe eventually I'll do some with narration.:wink:

Can you please give the source for your signature. I love it, and have never heard it before. I'm kind of a quote lover, and this one deserves some attention.

 

If you created it, great job.

 

 

Cheers,

Corax
