Description

Description

AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software provides tools for creating section views and laying them out in preparation for printing. These tools and options work fairly well for people who work in the flatter parts of the world, but for those of us who design in more rugged terrain...not so much. In this class we discuss section view styles, group plot styles and how they interact. We also demonstrate a method that allows you to create stacks of variable-height section views so that the page space is used efficiently.
