CAD Duct Help Book
« on: October 28, 2009, 10:02:43 AM »
Hi all,

Im looking for a little cad duct help book. I understand i have the help menu with cadduct, but for other people learning cadduct they find this hard to find solutions to problems.

Does any have an PDF document with all instructions on how to use the main functions of Cadduct. Stuff like adding parts to cadduct, Setting up new service grouping , mainly database instructions rather than actual service co-ordination help.............

I followed the link to the UGM 09 Power Point presentations, but all that I can see is a series of slides identifying the topics to be presented - no actual instructions.  Am I not viewing it correctly, or is that all there is, and if so, is there another site which does contain the actual details and instructions?  Thanks for any info.

These are all .PPS files that you will have to have power point to open.

These are just the power point slides and contain no real instructions unless you know what they are talking about.

Ya, I don't understand the purpose of these slides, they don't seem to contain any real useful information.

On a similar note, I got an email today stating that Autodesk University will have "virtual" web based events for those that can't make it to Vegas this year.  Highlights will be free for everyone.  Or for $99 (free for subscription customers) one will have full access to 50+ classes, keynotes, & other premium content streamed live, plus access to 350 on-demand sessions post-event.  Now that's awesome.

The PowerPoints are provide to support the information that was discussed during the event.  The information is not training material.  The PowerPoints are intended for those who attended the event as reinforcement to what was presented.  The TSI User Group Meeting is designed for Customer interaction and networking and to better understand how others are benefiting from the Software.  To better understand the PowerPoints one would have needed to attend the event.

That is real nice.  I may have to look around during that.  Time permitting of course :D

I got the same email from AUGI. Sounds like a good deal (free) for subscription customers.

Not sure what is expected....AutoDesk spends over $20 million on AU.... I am sure the UG tab is no where near that.....

Fixed :)

I don't understand why you quoted me and gave that response?
I was just telling gambitjr to have patience and wait for Jim to respond.  3 posts in a row all to Jim about the same thing.
