Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Explain the different parts of a pressure network in Civil 3D
  • Lay out a pressure network both horizontally and vertically
  • Edit pressure networks to account for design changes such as crossing utilities
  • Analyze the pressure network to find faults in the layout of the model

Description

Description

Modeling a water distribution system has always been a tedious process. AutoCAD Civil 3D software offers tools that will greatly assist you with this process. For horizontal layout as well as vertical layout, Civil 3D can model just about any situation you will run into. In this class, we see how to create a 3D model of our water distribution system, edit the system to account for those design changes, and analyze it for design errors. Note that this class does not get into hydraulic analysis.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Municipal utilities engineers, civil engineers in land development, oil and gas engineers, BIM/CAD managers, civil designers, and others who need to produce plan sets, construction drawings, or 3D models of pressure utilities such as water or gas.

Brian Hailey

Having graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering, Brian worked as a design engineer for 8 years in a couple of general civil engineering firms. Focusing primarily on the land development side of things he then went on and became a Licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado. Brian then went on to become a Technical Specialist with CAD-1 where he assists engineering companies (as well as governmental agencies) with implementing Autodesk software (e.g. AutoCAD Civil 3D). Brian has taught at Autodesk University 6 times, once receiveing the award for "Best Unconference" and won the overall AUGI Top DAUG competition at AU2011
