My New Home Is Ready!

I know I've been a bit of a blogging nomad for the past year, thanks for sticking with me! My new digs- an Offical Autodesk Blog- are finally ready, so I will be posting over there a minimum of 3X per week from this point forward. Civil 3D Rocks will stay here as a repository for the old reference material.

I am very excited about this- we'll mix Civil 3D technical information, previews, tricks, with relevant Civil 3D Industry information, photos and updates from conferences and user groups, and general good times. I hope you will join me- I feel like I am getting my voice back after a year or so of relative silence!

The new blog is called BIM on the Rocks. See you there! (And of course, you can always find me on twitter

You can subscribe using this link: BIM on the Rocks Feed

Or from the website, click the RSS Feed icon.


If you are used to getting Civil 3D Rocks in your email, use the above link then in the next window, choose the "Get BIM on the Rocks delivered by email"


If you are unfamiliar with reading blogs and other frequently updated webpages, watch this short video on how you can make it easier to keep up to date.

The timing is perfect- just in time for the coming release!

Want to See AutoCAD 2010? Watch the recording of yesterday's press conference!

Yesterday, Autodesk announced some key features in the upcoming release.

As Brian over at Being Civil posted, the recorded video can be watched here: AutoCAD 2010 Product Launch.

Also be sure to download the Press Materials. There is more than just information about AutoCAD in there- all of the platform products (AutoCAD MEP 2010, AutoCAD Architecture 2010, AutoCAD Civil 2010) have bits in the press kit as well.

Today will be the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) event, so check the site later today for information about the Revit family, Civil 3D and others!
