In this hands-on lab, you’ll learn how to generate parking lots, sweep vehicles around a site, and create a roundabout junction corridor. Step by step, you’ll learn how to choose a parking-lot style that is right for your site. Select the appropriate vehicle to check for turning movements and height clearances. Create a roundabout junction corridor to add to an existing AutoCAD Civil 3D software road corridor. You’ll also generate reports and customize the settings and standards for a specific project.
Vince Sheehan has been using Autodesk, Inc., products since 1992. He has been working in the geographic information system (GIS) civil engineering and surveying field since 1995. He currently serves as senior designer for Timmons Group GIS, a civil engineering consulting firm located in Richmond, Virginia. He is also a design specialist and blogger on the site PolyIn3D, where he writes tutorials and how-to tips for Autodesk products, and he was a lab presenter at Autodesk University 2012. Vince has also been 3D modeling and rendering for over 10 years using a variety of Autodesk and non-Autodesk products.
Vehicle Tracking software is much more than just swept path analysis. Join us in this hands-on lab to find out for yourself how Vehicle Tracking can improve your project decision making. This software enables even beginning designers to make educated decisions concerning their projects. We will look at all functions of Vehicle Tracking software and complete the following in the lab: lay out a parking lot design; ensure our design meets standards; utilize our Vehicle Tracking info for detailed grading; create a roundabout option within our development; and much, much more. After this hands-on lab, you will feel much more comfortable taking your new skills back to the office and showing the many ways to use Vehicle Tracking software. This session features Vehicle Tracking and AutoCAD Civil 3D.
This class will show several tools from Autodesk, Inc.’s, toolbox for site grading. These tools will help with many types of tasks surface design, planning, and layout. They will save you time and money and give you a powerful visual so everyone can understand the obstacles and outcomes of site grading design. For an example, we will show you how to effectively link your finished ground surface to a sub grade surface so that it updates simultaneously. This class will cover many everyday tasks, and provide tips to help you accomplish them more efficiently and effectively. When finished with this class you will be able to grab a tool out of your toolbox, look at it, and think to yourself “I know I can use this tool for this task why wouldn’t it also work for this task in front of me?”
Vehicle tracking is a very easy-to-use and handy tool for creating swept path analysis. You can use it from the very first moment. However, each type of software has its hidden places to be uncovered. Come to this session to learn how to create new articulated vehicles based on given data sheets and discuss other possibilities available for creating new vehicles, including rear-axle steering. You will learn how to add load to the trailer for analysis purposes and as well as for animation. Learn how to import a vehicle created in another product, and to have rich vehicle library for animation. Reporting is an important part of the product and we will go through different possibilities offered by the product. We will also discuss roundabout design possibilities
How many steps does it take you to fully design a roundabout after you’ve created your profiles and alignments? It can take as few as 3. In this class we’ll use 2 products to create alignments, profiles, and a fully designed roundabout. Vehicle Tracking is the solution to creating a corridor of a fully designed roundabout in AutoCAD Civil 3D software. We’ll cover best practices, workarounds, shortcuts, and the pros and cons of using Vehicle Tracking. You will also see examples of projects in which you can use a variety of products and methods for modifying roundabouts, and we’ll create a client presentation of the design for a project.
This course illustrates key new features and tools with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016 software, InfraWorks 360 software, and Vehicle Tracking software. We will put on display data collaboration between software for Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows. Beginning with a preliminary design, in this class we will create, analyze, and edit design features such as roads, roundabouts, and bridges while collaborating with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016 software. At the end of our lecture we will share our final design models to the cloud to be accessed by Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform and InfraWorks 360 software web viewer. In addition, we will also animate our final design into a video presentation with 3ds Max Design software.
