Best place to learn?

83 Views, 6 Replies
04-25-2005 06:28 AM
We purchased LDT and C3D a few months ago. I've had training in LDT and I'm
coming along pretty well. But I haven't had any actual training in C3D yet
(I have gone though the tutorials and I understand the basics). What are
the best resources for learning C3D (books, web sites, etc.)?

Thanks

Hey John;

Besides the ones you've mentioned, some of the resellers are gearing up to
provide these services. Together with AD own capable (though a little pricey
for most of the smaller firms, maybe) consulting branch, you should be able
to get direct instruction shortly from those entities.

And of course, there's always this venue to be perused.

I would start here maybe:
http://estore.autodesk.com/dr/v2/ec_MAIN.Entry10?V1=675372&PN=1&SP=10023&xid=19515&CID=134779&DSP=&CUR=840&PGRP=0&CACHE_ID=134779

The price is right - now where did Bob Barker run off to?

Just took a 3 day LDT > C3D course at my resellers. They included the
Essentials book and some other training guides on a CD. I would say that the
training is as much in it's infancy as the program. But I got a lot out of
the course. Most important was what I wont be able to do with the software
yet.

Hey Allen;

You mean that they came out and told you what you could/could not do, or you
read between the lines?

The instructor was very honest with us. Of course he is a consultant. Not an
employee of autodesk or our reseller.

The opinion most of us in the class came away with is that this will be a
great program and offers a lot already. But there are may thing that can
still only be done in Land and Civil design.

Hey Allen;

Too true, but my guess is that the Calculation portion of C3D Pipes will hit
the streets with the first Service Pack for 2006.

These folks are on the fast-track.

I would like to see them compete with CadApps-AU in developing a Imperial
alternative to Advanced Road Design.

Comments from Laurie or Rad? Dave, Dan?

I believe that they have restrictions on what they are allowed to "give away
for free" by way of service packs. It is my understanding that they must
receive some kind of payment for any new features that they provide (ie:
anything that is not a bug fix). This has what they have said in the past,
anyways.
