• Jennifer does a very good job at presenting thoroughly without getting bogged down in things that are not relevant. She also goes slow enough to follow the logic. Some presenters assume the audience already knows everything they are thinking. That’s what makes many webinars useless.

  • Before watching your webinars, I thought they were probably not that helpful. However, after watching several of them, I have learned much more about the software than I would have otherwise. It also greatly reduced my learning curve time. Truly, you do a great job!

    By the way, I am using the Intellicad version of Carlson (love it, love it, love it!!!). Purchasing the software from you and getting the webinars is one of the best business decisions I have ever made. It has helped me go from having a great piece of software that I do not know how to use, to truly helping me to be much more productive. I can’t thank you enough!

  • Enjoyed it. Liked it when you would forget little details and have to backtrack a little bit, and also when you discover something new. Most people when helping me with CAD go too fast. My iPad screen is too small so will need to bring my notebook pc next time. Overall, very informative. Thanks.

  • Jennifer is a skilled instructor. She is capable of explaining the subject in a manner that her students can understand. She does not talk over your head, and she takes the time to ensure that all are keeping up. She has the ability to see things from your point of view.

    She knows her subject well. I think that she is a skilled trainer, and I can highly recommend her to others.

  • I came across Jennifer on the surveying chat board www.beerleg.com and found her helping out folks free of charge. I was intrigued and went to her web site to find out more. I discovered not only that she was knowledgeable and experienced about Carlson products but was offering the software at a reasonable price. I had been contemplating a change and here was an opportunity. I’m glad I went forward and would not hesitate to recommend Jennifer and That CAD Girl to my peers.

I had received an AutoCAD file where the rotation of the drawing was not in “World” (also not in any UCS configuration) and the orientation of the pointer crosshairs were not what you would normally see.
I could not remember the commands to fix all of that so I “Googled” it and came across That CAD Girl’s PDF file that helped me remember what to do. In less than a minute, I had the drawing orientation fixed as well as the pointer crosshairs.

I also found the on-line store where software is sold. I had wanted to purchase Civil 3D, but the price tag was way above what I could afford being that I am a new civil engineering company just getting started. These prices are affordable for software that does basically the same thing as ACAD, so I will be switching over to Carlson soon for basically the same price that I purchased ACAD LT. I wish that I had seen this website before purchasing LT.

I would highly recommend anyone to browse through this website as there is some really good information about CAD and software.

I purchased the Civil Suite last month and I wanted to thank you for all your pdf tutorials you posted on your site. They have been extremely helpful and they have made the switch from Civil 3D to Carlson quick and easy.

I can confidently say, that I prefer this software over Civil 3D already (used Civil 3D for years)! It’s faster, has more control, and is generally cleaner than Civil 3D. Clean and simple.

Thanks for all your help! Looking forward to getting up to speed on more of your tutorials and webinars 🙂

All of the City of Greensboro’s Engineering Design Division participated in this training. We are converting to Carlson Civil Suite. The instructor made sure everyone kept up with the training and the training covered all the aspects of road design and surface generation we use.

The examples we worked through and the handout provided explained the processes very well.

Jennifer,
It is my pleasure to respond back and offer feedback on the experience. At the time of purchase of the T-3, I was most concerned with my abilities and how long it would take for me to be able to stand alone in the use of this sophisticated program. My past experience was Agtek in which I had a strong knowledge of. From the first time of contacting you and your service, I begin to feel more comfortable with time necessary to operate this system.

Our first meeting in which took about two hours, my fears were gone and I found your teaching ability to be excellent. I was able to perform the immediate task and prepare for the next meeting which would bring the total package of earthwork take-off to conclusion. The second meeting was much more relaxed in which we touched on specific questions and computed volumes. Mission accomplished. The one on one training is the way to go that allows the student to retain the information needed rather than be overload with a large training program that you forget most of what you were shown.

I found the total experience to be empowering and I now use this program comfortable with only 3.5 hours of training. My thanks to you and to Carlson for opening my abilities to new horizons

After much inner debate about the necessity of upgrading my Carlson Civil 2007 package- I decided to bite the bullet and spend the money. After soliciting quotes from a couple of semi-responsive and generally un-knowledgeable local vendors, and in one case not getting any response at all, I put the project on hold for almost a year.

After recently running across Jennifer’s website on line, I contacted her, she responded promptly and the deal was done. Jennifer knows the software, trains people on the software, is responsive, and she’s a darn personable gal, to boot.

Jennifer, being a novice to CAD, I called you for technical support with my Carlson 2010 with IntelliCAD. After our two hour session, I was able to produce a plat. I greatly appreciate your instruction and understanding.

Thanks,

I purchased Carlson Survey 2010 from Jennifer because she has a first hand, working knowledge of the product and offered a competitive purchase price. The purchase process was timely and efficient and I would have no hesitation in doing business with Jennifer again. I recommend “That CAD Girl” for the purchase and training of Carlson software.

I had a command line question that even with 20 years of experience with AutoCAD, I could not figure out. A simple email to Jennifer and I had my answer within just a few minutes. Jennifer has come through every time we have needed her. Even though I hate to admit it when I can not figure something with AutoCAD, I never mind asking Jennifer for help. Outstanding as always.

Not being to great a user with AutoCAD 2009, I needed some help with settings pertaining to blocks coming into drawings from palettes.
I was very pleased with the quick response and support I received with my question. It sure took a load off my mind. I cannot stand not being able to figure things out. I am fortunate to have found a supportive site with That CAD Girl.

Jennifer was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what I was looking for (Carlson Civil 2010), her prices were the best I found online and the software was installed and completely ready to use the same day. I look forward to her training sessions on Carlson Civil.

Thanks again for all your help.

The 3D Modeling class was a very good value. Trimble charges four times as much for comparable training. Jennifer came highly recommended from my Carlson sales rep and she was well qualified as an instructor. She varied the class material to fit the needs of her customers as well as being responsive to after-the-fact questions weeks later. I would highly recommend That CAD Girl to anyone in need of Carlson training and would take similar classes in the future.

The good thing about training with That CAD Girl is the lessons are tailored to your personal needs and speed. I have taken similar classes in the past in a setting were you tried to cram a lot of info into a short 1 or 2 day class. I personally can not comprehend that much info at one time and I am left with more Q’s than A’s.

With Jennifer we train for about 2 hrs and then after I try the work on my own I can pin point difficulties and have my questions ready for the next session. Also Jennifer will e-mail a recording of the session so I can review at my leisure when questions come up. If problems come up I can not resolve on my on Jennifer can respond quickly by e-mail or schedule a short online session. This really helps as you know “time is money”,fixing problems without having to travel saves both.

I knew a lot of the topics, but learned many finer points that will be helpful.

 

I feel more comfortable with creating surfaces & that my data is accurate

 

The best thing I learned was following polylines & elevating as you go. Very useful for the parking lot I’m designing tomorrow.

 

Content was excellent. Coming in to the class without much Carlson experience, content was not too difficult, yet challenging.

 

As an engineer and surveyor, Carlson is an extremely powerful tool.
