Twitter #FollowFriday Professional Land Surveyor Recommendations

Here is this week’s Twitter #FollowFriday Professional Land Surveyor Recommendations:

iPinda@iPinda – Edwards Twitter bio says “CAD specialist, AutoCAD trainer and Civil 3D addict” and if you visit his Civil 3D Peanuts blog, you’ll discover that he’s also a part-time freelance AutoCAD trainer and full time CAD application administrator for an international AEC company. You can also learn nice tips and tricks like Importing AutoCAD Objects as Surface data points.

cad_notes@cad_notes- Edwin is from Indonesia, is an AutoCAD and Revit user, and writes the popular CAD tutorials and best practices blog CAD NOTES. Definitely read yesterday’s post on How to: Draw an Arc with a Specific Arc Length?

wkfd@wkfd – WKFD is the Twitter account for the Kung Fu Drafter blog. They are drafters and geeks trying to share information with people with similar interests. I highly recommend visiting The Kung Fu Drafter blog, as it is a fun site and full of information too! This week I enjoyed reading Review: Kung Fu Drafter Reviews AutoCAD Freestyle … blog post.

Here is this week’s Twitter #FollowFriday Professional Land Surveyor Recommendations:

JoshNelson @JoshNelson – Josh is a Civil Engineer and current President of the Civil CADD Consortium. The Civil CADD Consortium, or C3 (s? thr?), was founded in 2000 by a group of Southern California civil engineering professionals, mainly comprised of local office, as well as corporate-level, CADD Managers.

ryanpconnolly @ryanpconnolly – Ryan is a civil engineering student, CAD user, and CAD learner (aren’t we all though). He occasionally refers to me as “mr. colburn”, which makes me laugh. In my mind I’m his age, or younger, but the years do tend to add up after awhile.

cad_notes@cad_notes- Edwin is from Indonesia, is an AutoCAD and Revit user, and writes the popular CAD tutorials and best practices blog CAD NOTES. Definitely read today’s post on How to: Set Local Help File as Default in 2011 Version, which I thought was well done and helpful.

Engineer Troops Survey Liberty for New Maps

Engineer Troops Survey Liberty for New Maps

BAGHDAD, Iraq – A temporary increase in the number of Soldiers moving through Camp Liberty is expected as the U.S. military transitions to a responsible drawdown in Iraq.This increase means plans to improve facilities and security; an impossible task without updated maps.

Troops of the 621st Survey and Design Team, 101st Engineer Battalion, 16th Eng. Brigade, surveyed Camp Liberty, Nov. 5, to provide leaders and Soldiers with updated maps.

From North Carolina, the National Guard team includes two survey teams and one drafting team who are responsible for architectural design, land survey, and cartography.

“[The 621st] provides topographical data in our areas of responsibilities and provides input for better utilization of existing structures,” said Staff Sgt. Glenn Cornett, of Hazard, Ky.

PROFESSIONAL LAND SURVEYOR SURVEY

PROFESSIONAL LAND SURVEYOR SURVEY

In this week’s PROFESSIONAL LAND SURVEYOR SURVEY I am asking how you would rate the cost of your CAD software. As ubiquitous as it has become, your CAD software expenditure is certainly not something you can afford to take lightly, particularly in these difficult economic times.

Whether you’re a professional land surveyor, engineer, architect, or designer of any kind, I bet that you have a strong opinion on this subject. I do too, but I’m going to hold off telling you my opinion for now until mostly everyone has had a chance to vote and leave their comments.

So, please vote on the PROFESSIONAL LAND SURVEYOR SURVEY-How Would You Rate the Cost of Your CAD Software? below, and leave your comments telling us what you think about the cost of your CAD software.
