Learn AutoCAD Civil 3D from a top professional
September 01, 2012
Video tutorial provider InfiniteSkills Inc. has announced the availability of its latest AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 video tutorial series, commented by Seth Cohen, a professionally certified CAD trainer.
With 106 separate lessons explaining the program’s tools at a beginner level, the Civil 3D training course is available on DVD-ROM or as a direct download from the InfiniteSkills website. The training offers a comprehensive guide to project planning, design and exploration, integrating real-world topographic datasets into expansive dynamic models.
The first chapter of the AutoCAD Civil training course begins with a description of the software user interface. Instructor Seth Cohen identifies each of the major areas of the Tool Space and demonstrates them in basic use. After a chapter on defining and modifying points, Civil 3D tutorials explain how to connect and use survey databases, including figures, points, and queries.
The next half of the AutoCAD Civil course covers surface parameters, alignment, and modeling. The tutorials show how to add outlines and modify surfaces, how to perform analyzes, and how to add labels for organization and collaboration. Civil 3D training then moves on to creating assemblies and subassemblies, modeling corridors, leveling and laying out pipe networks. The training also covers collaboration and reporting tools, from quantity charts to plot charts and reports.
“What really is the most exciting aspect of using Civil 3D is its dynamic connection to real data,” said author Seth Cohen. “With the old stand-alone CAD programs, the drawing was still cut off from relevant GIS information. In AutoCAD Civil 3D, everything is linked and up to date.”
The AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 Tutorial Video Course has sample data sources that sync with the examples used by the author onscreen. While most of the training uses these datasets and sample models, users also learn to connect to custom data sources used in their own projects. “Seth provides training and CAD solutions to engineering companies for a living, so these AutoCAD Civil tutorials reflect a professional perspective and best practices used in the industry,” said Chris Johns, Content Coordinator for InfiniteSkills. “The training is directly translatable for use in the real world.”
As vice president of training for CADmanage, Seth Cohen has conducted hundreds of onsite seminars on AutoCAD and Microstation around the world. Certified AutoCAD Civil 3D Implementation Expert and Autodesk Level 5 Geospatial Technical Specialist, Seth has worked as a Surveyor, Design Technician and CAD Manager on Survey, Boundary and Department of Transportation projects in eastern United States. He is also a speaker and trainer at AUGI CAD National Camps and has designed specialized training courseware for the Ford Motor Company.
The full Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 training video can be ordered from the InfiniteSkills website for US $ 99.95. The tutorial joins the company’s extensive courses on Autodesk AutoCAD 2013 and multiple versions of AutoCAD Revit, providing a library of resources for designers and engineers across multiple disciplines. Free shipping is available in the United States and Canada, and purchase options are available worldwide.
