Civil engineers have used 3D model-based design for over 2 decades, so the line between CADD and BIM is not clear. Using examples drawn from real bridge, tunnel, highway and transit projects, we discuss how to differentiate between CADD and BIM. We find a place for analytical models, introduce terminology, such as level of development (LOD), and identify how goals, processes, products, and applications differ through the project lifecycle. We also make sense of CADD Standards, construction plans, and 3D deliverables in the context of a BIM workflow that manages liability. We document our discussion in a Venn diagram that helps to communicate what BIM means for infrastructure.

Francesca is a member of PB's Special Services Group, a group focused on applying emerging technology and innovative concepts to complex projects. The Virtual Design & Construction group provides guidance and leadership on the application of BIM for infrastructure projects at the proposal, design and construction phase. The project portfolio includes signature bridge replacements and complex tunneling projects. Recognizing the strong industry penetration of model-based design for transportation projects, the VDC group specializes in integrating 3D design models to inform project management decision-making. The group uses BIM Implementation Plans to execute tasks, slicing and supplementing 3D design models to form a consolidated 3D model at the LOD and disaggregation required to deliver the BIM goals. These goals frequently include constructability assessments, high-level 4D schedule visualization, LOD 400 virtual mock-ups and LOD 400 clash detection of precast concrete elements.
Kevin Gilson is the Manager of Design Visualization for Parsons Brinckerhoff, an international transportation planning, design and construction management firm. He manages 3D modeling and visualization programs for large infrastructure projects worldwide. For the last several years, Kevin has helped promote and implement new technologies such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), and 3D model-based design solutions on several large infrastructure projects. Kevin has presented often on 3D modeling, visualization, and BIM/VDC processes, and has presented several courses previously at Autodesk University. Kevin spent several years as an Autodesk/Discreet Training Specialist.
Für die Aufgabenbewältigung komplexer Infrastrukturprojekte sind intelligente und vorallem ganzheitliche IT-Lösungen notwendig. Durch Nutzung der BIM Methode werden diese Projekte sicherer und kostengenau.<br/><br/>Wir zeigen am Beispiel eines aktuellen Kundenprojektes wie mit den Softwarewerkzeugen von Autodesk erfolgreich die täglichen Aufgaben bewältigt werden können.
Die GIS – Spezialisten der CWSM GmbH Software Solutions stellen Ihnen die Lösungen vor, mit denen Anwender aus den Bereichen Vermessung, GIS und Netzdokumentation auf ALKIS umstellen und diese Daten effizient auswerten, analysieren und verarbeiten können.

Visualisierung von Städtebauprojekten für die Öffentlichkeit.<br/><br/>Analyse der Planungsvorhaben hinsichtlich städtebaulichen Vorgaben (Besonnung/Beschattung, Sichtachsen, Gebäude-Entwurf, Planung des öffentlichen Raumes) mit Autodesk Infraworks.
Points have many settings that can help import, create, and manage through style formats, description keys, label components and even layer controls. As we work in AutoCAD Civil 3D software, we all start to find ways we can optimize our point data whether it's by importing, exporting, or creation. In this class, you learn tips and tricks that will help you in your process of working with your Civil 3D points by display through styles. You learn ways to manage these points through groups and examine settings as you manage your point drawing. We also dig deeper into a Civil 3D template to help you manage points through styles and settings. I'm excited to show you options to control your points via a style through layers, text styles, and options using tips I've learned in the industry and from training others.
Learn how to create tunnel sections and corridor modeling solids for tunnels in AutoCAD Civil 3D software. Learn how Civil 3D interacts with Revit Structure software and how to manipulate tunnel solids, obtain drawings, and create reports, volumetrics, and visualization in Revit Structure. Finally, learn how to model a tunnel natively in Revit Structure and export it to Civil 3D.
This class takes a focused look at a couple of workflows in AutoCAD Civil 3D software that use corridors to model surfaces with complex slope geometries. We present several examples from actual grading projects. One example demonstrates the creation of a slope that uses target alignments and profiles to control the placement and grade of a mid-slope bench and drainage channel. The second example shows how to use default and custom subassemblies to model variable height retaining walls.
Learn the ins and outs of the River and Flood Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 software. Prepare and model a floodplain, levee, and bridge system with Infrastructure Design Suite Ultimate. Join us in this hands-on lab to learn the River and Flood Extension for preparing design analysis of river systems.
Come to this class to learn how to wow your customers and win stakeholder approvals with 3D utility proposals, whether it is in a corporate boardroom or an eastern Idaho farm. This class demonstrates how a beginner to InfraWorks software can create a model that will win shareholder approval—even if your office does not draft in 3D. We present in-depth use cases on hydroelectric facilities, substations, and proposed transmission lines. The class covers the fundamentals of how to quickly and easily create an InfraWorks model. We also demonstrate how to use information from the office, such as GIS or LIDAR data, and we point out useful freebies on the web. You've never created a film in InfraWorks before? No problem—we cover some film-making basics and highlight easy ways you can show off your proposals.
The first and foremost workflow in utilities is to enable the designers to access as-built information from mapping and/or GIS systems. This roundtable session covers the capabilities of Autodesk Utility Design 2014 software and its data exchange framework for integrating with external as-built data. The complete round-trip workflow enables users to track and merge back information without loss of data fidelity in the translation process.
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.
