MicroSurvey embeddedCAD and inCAD Training Movies

Some of these movies may have been recorded in a previous version of or even in another one of our products, but in these cases the concepts being demonstrated are identical. Please note that embeddedCAD and inCAD are based on the AutoCAD© CAD engine thus the majority of CAD functions are demonstrated in other online resources such as the Autodesk© YouTube Channel.


Viewing Tips:

Each movie has a toolbar for controlling display size and playback, just mouse over player to see options while viewing.



A package of all these movies can be downloaded from this link. Unzip the file and double click on "embeddedcad.htm" to launch the local movies page in your browser.
