I am working on a 30 minute overview demo for some events next week, and I was thinking that I need to record it (helps me practice) and post it up on youtube. Look for that later tonight or tomorrow depending on how long it takes me to get through Target with Panorama and Prospector.
Also- Jerry and Lucy are doing a webcast tomorrow on the Civil 3D 2010 User Interface. Sign up for all of the upcoming webcasts while you are there.
One small thing that is new in Civil 3D 2010 that I really adore is profile hatch. How many times have you needed to show an area of cut or fill, or perhaps you wanted to hatch the space under the groundwater elevation, or show geological subsurfaces?
There is a new tab in Profile View properties that allows you to select profiles and create hatches between them. The tool uses shape styles- the same ones for assemblies and corridors- to control the color and fill.
The result is a dynamic hatched area that can bring some visual impact to your profile views.
I need to also wrap up our series on geological subsurfaces. If I go through many more "Parts", Mr. Zeeben will start picking on me. (Using Geological Data for Rock Quantities: Part XXIV)
