This class covers a typical utility workflow using Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite, highlighting its top new features and benefits. The workflow uses AutoCAD® Raster Design and AutoCAD® Map 3D software to gather and edit base data, such as aerial images, CAD drawings, and GIS data, including electric industry models. Analysis tools help identify potential areas and corridors for electric assets. Autodesk® Infrastructure Modeler software uses the data for a large-scale 3D model that combines the "What is" situation with "What could be" proposals. Conceptual designs of 3D overhead distribution networks, windmills or solar panels, buildings, and vegetation provide sophisticated visualizations for decision makers. A precise, model-based electric network is designed with AutoCAD® Utility Design based on these proposals. Standards-driven workflows and rules-based analysis tools ensure a network design with consistency and reliability.

This class will provide an overview of how Bechtel has used technology to help drive the capital investment project at London Gatwick, which is the world’s busiest single runway airport and the second largest airport in the UK. The discussion will focus on how Autodesk® software has been implemented along with a range of other technologies to deliver a carefully planned, multidisciplinary project, including new terminal buildings, renovations, and infrastructure works. With over 200 projects either in progress or planned, the coordination between the airport authority, Bechtel, and a host of subcontractors is crucial, and it requires intelligent use of standards and collaboration tools. This class will be jointly delivered by Bechtel and Autodesk and will focus on the flow of data from preliminary design through to architecture, engineering, construction, and beyond.
Today’s technology changes at breakneck speeds, introducing new features, new interfaces, and new platforms that are pointed at making people more productive. Oftentimes this means that to take advantage of these new technologies, you must learn new workflows and keystrokes. The typical answers to address these challenges are training events, video eLearning, or figure it out for yourself. I can assure you that the latest in Autodesk® technology can be learned and it is definitely manageable. However, relying solely on these 3 answers will leave you frustrated and searching the Internet for more. During this presentation you will learn how any organization of any size can, with modern thinking and tools, successfully implement, train, and support users on the latest Autodesk technology. I will share success stories from firms that use this approach to show you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

The tools that come in your Infrastructure Design Suite seem to be never ending. There are now 4 Hydraulics and Hydrology tools that should be able to accomplish most of your water resource needs, plus Autodesk® Storm and Sanitary Analysis, Hydrographs, Storm Sewers, and Express tools. Learn about these tools and when to use them for differing workflows and requirements. There is no "1-size-fits-all" project, so how can there be a "1-size-fits-all" analysis program? Having Infrastructure Design Suite and all of its tools can help civil engineering consultants do their projects with 1 software solution provider: Autodesk.
With the advent of the smart grid, it is even more important to have accurate and timely data. In this class, we will talk about right-of-way data capture and 3D street-level data capture. We will cover ground penetrating radar (GPR) , which enables you to access and understand underground utilities, to mitigate the risk of digging up or damaging someone else’s utilities, and to better coordinate across multiple organizations for projects such as road widening or overhead-to-underground. We will discuss smarter LiDAR, including processing of all types of LiDAR data from airborne, low-altitude corridor, mobile, and static sources. The class will cover ways to reduce the time needed to create current, accurate documentation of a proposed site and to maintain data of real-time existing conditions, reducing undocumented objects or changes from the original project scope. Finally, we will cover data maintenance, including refresh options and integration to maximize benefit of data and software investment.
As a part of the Infrastructure Design Suite PowerTrack, this class will highlight the potential uses of Autodesk® Infrastructure Modeler software as a central tool for use in a multidisciplinary project environment. Participants will build a realistic view of an existing site by using contextual, geospatial data and will then add information at various levels of detail to represent stages in the design process. This will range from conceptual sketches through to civil surfaces and architectural models. Once built, the model will be adapted to act as a central environment for visualizing the as-built site by referencing additional data sources, such as asset registers, as well as linking out to individual design tools and collaboration environments.

The United Kingdom (UK) is experiencing an exponential demand for rail travel, combined with demands from passengers for safer, faster, more reliable trains. The only way to meet this demand today, and for future generations, is to invest heavily in the UK's rail infrastructure. However, in today’s economic climate, rail infrastructure owners have to spend available capital wisely and ensure better outcomes, based on quality design and construction. This class looks at how UK rail infrastructure owners are adopting Building Information Modeling (BIM) as a key enabler to making informed business decisions throughout the life of the asset, based on accurate, complete, and unambiguous information. To achieve this, they are developing standardized processes and providing client leadership for their supply chain to build integrated teams with the capability and capacity to deliver their requirements.
People from every engineering company that works with curb design—from survey to design—should attend this class. With a strong concentration on workflows, this class will demonstrate how to capture existing curb features using high-definition scanning; use the conditional subassemblies functions in AutoCAD Civil 3D software; and automate curb design for driveways, sidewalks, and curb islands. We will explore solutions to place Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant (ADA) ramps into intersection designs and custom workflows to build interactive curb components that update dynamically for use in intelligent models. Site design and roadway design will be taken to a new level. Editing simple edge of pavement grades for site or roadway design will automatically update curb islands and proposed surfaces to complete site design and corridor surfaces. Our years of experience will provide solutions for workflows that are not made obvious. The class will conclude with a 3D model for staking the finished design.
