Welcome to the UK Civil 3D User Group


Thanks go to our sponsors Autodesk for hosting this meeting

Following two successful meeting as the Manchester Civil User Group, the committee felt they would need to spread the group to cover the UK, allowing us to attract further sponsorship. This will of course allow Civil 3D users across a wider area to participate. We aim to provide up to 6 meetings a year at various locations.

Meeting Theme and Target Audience

This meeting is aimed at Autodesk Civil 3D technical staff whom wish to learn more about how others use the Civil 3D software as the core design product in real world projects. The presentations however are not just limited to talking about the Civil 3D product, and others will be discussed where applicable to Civil 3D users in workflow.

The presenters will assume you have used and understand Autodesk Civil 3D to a reasonable level. If you have not, there is still benefit but you may find some elements a challenge to understand. It is for people that wish to network with users of the software.

Topics of project management, standardisation and industry process, such as BIM are discussed in the context of technical delivery

Registration Information and Form

UKCUG is operating a new registration process to reduce drop out rate and maximise who can attend.

The registration process is as follows

1. Register using the form Please register using the below form to indicate that you would like a place reserving and an opportunity to check in

2. Airline Style Check In You will be required to “check in” 3 working days before the meeting. This is done by simply replying to the check in request email that will be sent at this time. Therefore it is important that you check your email address when entering. This will generate your joining details. If you do not check in, you risk losing your place to somebody on the waiting list. This is very much like booking a flight and then checking in on-line before the flight. This is to reduce the drop out list and free up spaces for waiting list people. Check in will remain open as long as places remain.

One No Show, one Suspension Regardless of reason, if you register and check in and do not turn up, you may be unable to attend the next meeting if registrations are high. After this, you will be considered only within the “General Registration”, and not as a previous attendee until you have attended two more meetings.

The UK Civil 3D User Group is free to attend. Everybody must register. First come, first served. Where lots of individuals from one organisation register the committee may ask for this number to be reduced to keep the group diverse. The committee reserve the right to refuse admission without giving reason. Capacity of this event is 30. If capacity is reached a waiting list will operate and will be released one day before the event on a first come first served basis. Only AEC organisations, no recruiters.
