You might remember me mentioning my friend Peter Thomson of MWH in New Zealand. He’s one of my favorite email pen pals! I saw him teach at Civil 3D University in Auckland last year and I was impressed by his knowledge of the software and how he works with labels and styles that really make a big impact.
Peter is teaching at AU this year, and he sent me a video that gives you a bit of a preview of his class. Check it out!
