Civil 3D 2007 speed?

Hi all,

is C3D 2007 faster than 2006? I ask that because 2006 is a bit horrible!...
Just got my 3 versions of 2007 and wonder if I should install them.

Also is there a way to load the plain Autocad version without the C3D
features? Many times we want to use it as plain Autocad...

Thanks

Greg

Some are saying yes, some no. I've found it to be faster in some
areas, about the same in others. Still going to take a while to
calculate complex corridors, for example.

Indeed there is. You can select during the installation to create an
AutoCAD 2007 profile.

In general, I find it faster.

Some things are just so marvelous and sooo much more mature- like feature
lines (I could kiss the grading team) and the Map datasource/theming stuff
is just A GIFT FROM HEAVEN.

And I have a WAY WAY underspec laptop I am working on.

But there are somethings that are irking me...

Like having to recreate my '06 surface definitions

And having to do a hard core scrub uninstall of 2006 or else I wind up with
pipes at zero invert and no corridor modeling tools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

weird.

Hmph. So that was why I had the problem with pipes early on in the
beta version.

ALTHOUGH - I've got both running on this machine, and 2007 runs fine
alongside.
