Here is this week's Twitter #FollowFriday Professional Land Surveyor Recommendations:
@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 - 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- 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.
@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 their CAD+: Autodesk Celebrates Earth Day, Gifts for All ... and CAD: What is the Shelf Life of a CAD Professional ... blog posts.
@CDSpaul- Paul is President of Carlson Desktop Solutions (CDS) which is a technology firm working to help professional land surveyors find faster ways to do things like layout, easier COGO, and "True Field-To-Finish Solutions. I recommend his Paul Carlson's Blog which has good information on using AutoCAD Civil 3D and Carlson Software, like his Stretchy Thingy post and video on polyline editing.
@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; Converting Civil 3D objects from Imperial to Metric (and vice versa) and how to Copy and/or Paste Surfaces.
@Eagle_Point -Eagle Point has been providing the AEC and Geospatial markets with technical solutions and services for over 25 years (disclosure: Eagle Point advertises on this site). For AEC, they offer desktop solutions that run on AutoCAD and AutoCAD Civil 3D, including solutions for surveying, like their Surveyor' Companion for Civil 3D and other AEC and Geospatial markets with technical solutions.
That's a wrap!
