I was recently certified by Autodesk as a Civil 3D Implementation Certified Expert or ICE. I have worked in the Civil Engineering industry since 1987. In 1994 I started my consulting business doing training and consulting for Civil Engineering customers utilizing Autodesk civil engineering technology. I started L.A. CAD in 1999 and we are currently the 3rd largest Autodesk partner in the U.S. Studied Civil Engineering at Long Beach State, graduated in 1996.

Southern California CAD Summit

To Register, click here

Each year, L.A. CAD hosts the largest Autodesk University type event in Southern California, the Southern California CAD Summit (SCCS). We will see you at the Long Beach Convention Center where Lynn Allen will be joining us again this year just like the last two years conducting her tips and tricks for AutoCAD 2007. This is our third year running this event. Last year in San Diego we had over 300 people attend and the prior year in Orange County we had over 125 people. We expect 500 people this year so sign up soon.

L.A. CAD Subscription customers will receive a certain amount of free passes to this event. If you are not an L.A. CAD subscription customer, you can still sign up. All attendees must submit their registration request at the link provided below. This event is larger than local AUGI CAD Camps with more classes to choose from, more exhibitors to see, and more prizes to win. The SCCS course catalog has been finalized for registration and viewing. To submit your registration request and review the costs to attend, please visit the following link:


This years Civil 3D 2007 courses include the following:

1. Vault Workflow for a Typical Civil Engineering Project - This class will cover a workflow that was put together by L.A. CAD and validated with several Civil Engineering companies in Southern California. It even discusses how Vault and Sheet Set Manager can be used together.
2. The Rocky Horror Template Show in Civil 3D with Style(s) - This class will cover most everything that can be customized in Civil 3D and how to share the customization that represents your CAD and Design Standards through templates. It will also cover production quality Civil 3D labels.
3. This "Spot" reserved for Grading - In this course, we will cover many of the new grading tools in Civil 3D 2007 in a real world application of these tools for a commercial site. We will be covering the new feature line tools, grading objects, and how to create dynamic surfaces with unique production quality labels representing finished surfaces that will allow you to evaluate your design against quickly against your design criteria.
4. Pipes don't have to be Draining - In this class you will learn how to create customized parts lists in Civil 3D 2007 that incorporate appropriate graphical and CAD standards for both plan and profile. You will also learn how to incorporate certain standard design rules into your customized parts lists and how to save this all in standard template files. We will also look at some of the Pipe layout tools with transparent command features along with running interference and proximity checks along with interference graphics.
5. Road Rehabra-Cadabra - Utilizing the power of Civil 3D subassemblies, we will look at a real world application of using assemblies, subassemblies, and corridors. In this course, we will start with an exsting roadway surface and learn how to improve that surface by holding to certain existing features like edges, crowns, holding certain cross fall to improve the roadway.
6. One Point, Two Point, Red Point, Blue Point - You will learn most aspects of working with points like importing and exporting, customizing the label properties of different point groups and working with description keys. You will learn how to control layout and dragged state properties of points and also how to change orientation of points utilizing options such as Object, WCS, and View.
