It’s Official I am off to AU this year

Been off the radar recently finishing off a job, but had confirmation last week that the paper I submitted for AU has been accepted this year so its off to Las Vegas in November.


It will be great to meet with people that I have corresponded with over the last 5 or 6 years since picking up CIvil3d if attending and see what the atmosphere is like with 1000’s of CAD users in the one place.

Here is a summary of my paper

General Class Information

Class Title Help Urban Infill Subdivision - Lot grading on restricted and steep terrain

Class Description Help With the restricted supply of urban land and increasing cost, developers are using land for subdivision that was once considered unsuitable, leading to smaller more complex projects on restricted footprints. In this class we will look at numerous case studies of grading small lots involving the use Civil3d since 2007 and grading, corridor and pipe objects. We will review one persons workflow for getting the job done when Civil3d is pushed to the extreme.

What else would you like to tell us about either your class proposal or speakers that might influence us to choose your class?
(e.g., past AU class of which you are proud, project you are currently working on)

This paper this an extension of the paper I presented in New Zealand which I published on my blog here http://c3dxtreme.blogspot.co.nz/2011/05/urban-infill-subdivision-lot-grading-on.html which continues to be one of my most popular blog postings
