Open Meeting Offers Civil Engineers a Valuable Learning Opportunity

Offering all civil engineers and other related professions the opportunity to learn more about the latest software developments and receive valuable, practical guidance, the Autodesk Civil Solutions User Group (ACSUG) is holding an open meeting on Thursday 30 March, 2006 at the Autodesk offices in Farnborough, Hampshire. 


The meeting, which is free of charge, will:


  • Provide a “heads up” on the new features of Autodesk Civil 3D – plus a one-off opportunity to question relevant Autodesk personnel on the latest developments or other issues;
  • Include presentations from the Ordnance Survey and a contractor on different types of design background;
  • Give advice on getting started with Autodesk Civil 3D and a chance to learn from existing users about their first steps;
  • Offer information about country kits for localising software – and an opportunity for those attending to have a say in their development.

    The ACSUG was formed in 2004 to facilitate an exchange of ideas between users and liaise with Autodesk on all aspects of civil design.  “This open meeting provides an important opportunity for users – and potential users – to hone their skills, discuss any challenges they may have and learn from others in a similar position.  It will also provide the chance for a two-way exchange of ideas – and Autodesk will be listening hard to any comments and suggestions for future development of their products,” says ACSUG secretary Philip Madeley of Allied Integrated Technologies Ltd.


    The meeting will run from 10 am – 4 pm and includes lunch and other refreshments.  Further details and a registration form can be found on the Autodesk website at
