As exhibited by my lack of a dedicated AU Day 2 post, it goes without saying my Wednesday was pretty busy. I’ve heard many say every AU they attend becomes busier than the previous; a statement I can personally attest to. Nonetheless, I got my Tuesday started as a Lab Assistant; this time it was for John Beltran’s Hands-on Introduction to Dynamic Blocks. Even as a Lab Assistant I found the class most enjoyable, picking up a few pointers I didn’t previously know about along the way.
After helping out with John’s lab, I was able to be an attendee for the rest of the day, well most of it at least. Among the sessions I attended was the one casual class I registered for; The Making of Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who. No the class had absolutely nothing to do with Civil 3D, or anything else I personally do with Autodesk products, but it was incredibly neat to get a behind the scenes look at how the movie was made. As I recall they had datasets of some 140+ GB for each scene. Somehow I don’t think I should attempt such a dataset with Civil 3D.
