I will be there and teaching for the first time.  I plan to reference some of the solutions posted on this board for more detailed examples of the material I will be teaching.

 


What class are you teaching? Make sure you go to the speaker social on Monday night. It's a great way to meet other speakers and just relax prior to the hectic days of AU. I'll probably stop in for a bit but then I'm heading to the Blogger Social.

If you can, download the AU app. It looks like a great way to stay connected with other folks you might meet.

CI2160 - Intersections from the Inside Out: A Different Workflow for AutoCAD® Civil 3D®

 

Steve Boon, McElhanney Consulting

 

The design of roadways is typically based on the development of an alignment, then a profile, and finally a typical section. Many users who design intersections, ramps, or widenings run into difficulties because the process in AutoCAD Civil 3D software assumes that the road edge profile is designed independently of the two centerlines. In this class, you will learn a technique that allows the use of the classic alignment–profile–section process to design a widening, a ramp, or the turning lanes of an intersection. This technique can be used for all types of corridors where the pavement edge elevations are to be controlled by a specified crossfall from another profile or surface.

I'm just looking forward to hanging around on the discussion forums and benefiting from all the words of wisdom from you all after you finish!  (That's as close as I ever expect to get to AU)

Regarding AU, you'll learn a lot more by following people on twitter. I know, twitter sounds lame and for most things, I think it is but I use it primarily to learn more about Civil 3D. There are a lot of people out there that discuss C3D on twitter and, as an added benefit, you might see a picture or two with food in it.

Never used Twitter.  Or Facebook for that matter.  This is the only place I meet strangers online :smileywink:

 

So I'll just keep asking question here when I have a problem, and lurking around others' problems to see what solutions pop up, or even see what I can add.  And reading a few blogs too.  Is there an RSS feed for yours Brian?
