AUGIWorld January 2012 Issue Released... Get Advanced
One of life's great truths - and something AUGI members know all too well - is that we never stop learning. Just when you think you've mastered your Autodesk product of choice, you stumble across a blog post, read an article, or install a new software release and find that, yes, there is more to learn.
Get ready to learn something new! Leading off is "AutoCAD System Variable Superstars" by Louisa Holland, who will take you on a tour of some time-tested sysvars. Discover efficient AutoCAD Civil 3D modeling techniques for roundabouts from Bryan Tanner. And learn all about the Autodesk Inventor Moldflow Adviser plug-in from Mark Flayler.
And that's only the beginning of your learning experience this month. Here’s more.
