at least you didn't call us artichokes . . .

 :-D  well, sometimes I think that you guys are...  Do you know how many times I get some bad design and I catch it when we are going to lay it out.  I notify the engineer and he/she says "can't you make it work?!?"  :-D

Well I am not an engineer either - just an humble designer with a 37 year old BA in History.

You know I had a conversation with a LSIT last year whom insisted that he NOT learn any of the C3D design tools, "because I am going to be a surveyor, and that stuff is engineering."

I tried so very hard to get this young man to understand that knowledge of design would ultimately make him a better Surveyor. However my efforts were to no avail. :cry:

Welcome!  Sinc and myself are surveyors as well, I don't know about anyone else...  I think most here might be...ummm....*cough* engineers *cough* but don't let that discourage ya!  :-)

Hey I take offense to that. (Hides screen from the Engineers near him). I'm a designer who started out doing survey so get involved in the survey side of things on a daily basis. I'm also managing to get out and do some surveying again which is great.

You might try checking at civil3d dot com - they are now a vendor for MicroSurvey and Jason Hickey has spoken highly of it recently.

Dino,

Would you happen to have a direct link to where it is on that site? I've had a pretty good look around it and can't find it. If you can't that's fine.

I'm going to have to get in contact with a local seller to get a price I think.

Sorry Craig, I forgot that I had followed a link in an article that took me to this page on the NEW EE CORPORATE PAGE.

Good for you!  Many years ago, I got a BSCE but never went on to become a PE or even a EIT.  Engineers always ask me why I stayed with surveying.  I had two answers for him. 1) Surveyor's are more fun to hang out with and 2) I wanted more of a challenge!
