Designing Roundabouts using TORUS Roundabouts
Limited Capacity seats available

Bolstered by federal mandate, engineers are being tasked with evaluating the feasibility of a roundabout for their intersection projects. Manual roundabout design can be grinding and iterative, and can take its toll on even seasoned engineers. Come see why more and more DOTs have been choosing TORUS® Roundabouts for their design needs.

Via live demonstration of TORUS’ geometric design workflow, learn how:

  • Design Guidelines and Notifications system helps users maintain guideline conformity.
  • The Vehicle Envelope Method generates roundabout geometry that “works” for your design vehicles
  • Parametric/Dynamic Editing makes the design process faster and easier.
  • Feedback from Safety Analysis (Speed and Sight Line) and Vehicle Movements Evaluation can be used to inform geometric design and editing decisions.

Also, see a demonstration of new tools we’re developing for the next version of TORUS.

Limited Capacity seats available

(Skill level – Intermediate)

 

Target Audience/Who Should Attend

Civil 3D users who need to provide data to, or utilize data from GIS systems.  In addition to any Civil 3D user that wants to learn to be more productive in their everyday tasks by utilizing some of the overlooked tools that they already have in Civil 3D.

 

Description

If you are a Civil 3D user being asked to provide data to your GIS department, if you are being asked to use GIS data as background data for your designs, or if you think GIS is a four letter word; this class will answer this all too common question, “Why should I care about GIS?” You will learn to import GIS data not only as AutoCAD objects, but also directly as Civil 3D objects like Surfaces and Pipe Networks that leverage the existing database information. Once that data in in Civil 3D we will explore ways to leverage it with labeling tools and other display techniques. Don’t miss this award winning class from Autodesk University and your chance to learn how the GIS tools in Civil 3D can make you more productive by automating common everyday tasks.

Overcoming Design Waste with Clear Visualization of Stormwater Design with XPDrainage
Limited Capacity seats available

When looking at the design-build-maintain lifecycle of stormwater management systems in its entirety, shortcomings or gaps in this conventional design approach can be seen to hold back the potential success of the greater system. Simplified catchment delineation, independently designed and isolated stormwater controls are the byproduct of the conventional design approach. The ability to visualize realistic and complex systems as they will be built could provide a means for easily-created, clear-to-understand and cost-effective designs which would benefit the designer and the designed system.

This presentation will explore gaps in the conventional stormwater design process and how these problems can be solved by utilizing xpdrainage for clear visualization workflows and tools throughout the design process.  Learn how to Layout, Size and Report stormwater designs for Commercial and Residential development projects with xpdrainage and how this process allows for a more efficient, reliable design process.

Target Audience/Who Should Attend

Civil 3D users who need to provide data to, or utilize data from GIS systems.  In addition to any Civil 3D user that wants to learn to be more productive in their everyday tasks by utilizing some of the overlooked tools that they already have in Civil 3D.

 

Description

If you took part 1 of this class (today, at the meeting last summer, or at Autodesk University) and are ready to learn even more, this class takes the next step as we look at the GIS capability in Civil 3D and how it can benefit Civil Engineers and Surveyors.  GIS data can be created directly in Civil 3D or imported from other programs. Now that you have access to that data the real fun begins.  This class will explore ways to analyze, display and leverage this information to answer questions and automate common tasks.  The request to provide design data to GIS departments is becoming more common every day. This class will explore the details of why just sending them a drawing is often not an adequate way to satisfy that request.  You will learn ways to export Civil 3D objects to GIS formats that can be used easily and consistently by your GIS department.

Target Audience/Who Should Attend

Civil 3D users who need to provide data to, or utilize data from GIS systems.  In addition to any Civil 3D user that wants to learn to be more productive in their everyday tasks by utilizing some of the overlooked tools that they already have in Civil 3D.

 

Description

If you took part 1 of this class (today, at the meeting last summer, or at Autodesk University) and are ready to learn even more, this class takes the next step as we look at the GIS capability in Civil 3D and how it can benefit Civil Engineers and Surveyors.  GIS data can be created directly in Civil 3D or imported from other programs. Now that you have access to that data the real fun begins.  This class will explore ways to analyze, display and leverage this information to answer questions and automate common tasks.  The request to provide design data to GIS departments is becoming more common every day. This class will explore the details of why just sending them a drawing is often not an adequate way to satisfy that request.  You will learn ways to export Civil 3D objects to GIS formats that can be used easily and consistently by your GIS department.

Integrated Structural Design and Analysis: Autodesk Revit and Robot Structural Analysis Professional
Limited Capacity seats available

In this session, we will explore the simple, powerful, round-trip workflow between Revit 2017 software and Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2017 software. We'll start with a simple structural model of a building in Revit software and develop an understanding of the analytical model that Revit software builds concurrently with the creation of structural geometry. We will then explore the Structural Analysis for Revit feature, which enables static and gravity analyses to be performed on the cloud directly from Revit software. Next, we’ll push that model into Robot Structural Analysis Professional software to perform a basic analysis and code group-based design. Finally, we’ll push the updated geometry from Robot Structural Analysis Professional software back to Revit software and observe that the model has been updated. This session features Revit and Robot Structural Analysis Professional.

Parking Lot Grading with Civil 3D
Limited Capacity seats available

Learn the key steps and workflows in designing a parking lot with Civil 3D 2017 and 2018’s new enhancement Corridor’s from Feature Lines. As long as Civil 3D has been available, parking lot grading has been a difficult to model and obtain full quantities, sub surfaces, etc. With the new enhancements of Civil 3D, we gain a huge step forward in modeling our non-linear grading areas. This class will go through the necessary design steps, workflows, and techniques in obtaining a fully modeled parking lot utilizing Civil 3D Corridors. We will also discuss utilizing the new Dynamic Feature lines in 2018.

Moving Data Between Carlson to AutoCAD Civil 3D
Limited Capacity seats available

Do you have survey data that was collected in Carlson that you need to use in Civil 3D?  Do you ever receive Civil 3D drawings and need to use them in Carlson?  As technology gets more sophisticated it seems moving your data between programs gets more complex.  It used to be that a drawing was a drawing and that was relatively easy to share, but not anymore.  This class will help you gain an understanding of how your project data is formatted and stored in both Carlson and Civil 3D.  It will also show you step-by-step procedures and best practices for moving data between those two programs including working with LandXML data, the Export to AutoCAD command and much more.
