This class is designed for the surveyor, engineer, or planner who is interested in finding out more about incorporating the use of LiDAR data into their project lifecycle using products from Infrastructure Design Suite Ultimate 2014. The class focuses on the key workflow processes for incorporating LiDAR data from data collection and review to planning and design. With the addition of ReCap™ software to the 2014 design suites, the ability to process and review LiDAR data has been incorporated into our project workflow. In this class, we begin by reviewing and editing a sample LiDAR dataset in ReCap. Next, we see how the data can be incorporated into planning stage visualization using InfraWorks™ software. Following InfraWorks, we see how the LiDAR data can be incorporated into AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software and used for creating existing ground models for the basis of design using Infrastructure Design Suite Ultimate.
and others who are interested in finding out more about ReCap and InfraWorks and how to integrate these applications into current workflow processes
Matt is an Application Specialist for Ideate, Inc. and Autodesk Certified Instructor (ACI) in the Pacific Northwest. He has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and is a licensed Civil Engineer. Prior to joining Ideate, Matt worked as a civil engineer, using Civil 3D on a variety of projects including site development, roadway improvements and infrastructure design. With over 10-years of experience in the civil engineering industry, he uses his real-world knowledge to provide training, consulting, technical support and developing implementation strategies for organizations transitioning to Civil 3D. Since 2009, Matt has been the instructor for Ideate's online Civil 3D 201: Working with LiDAR Data class, and has presented classes on working with LiDAR data at AU 2009 and 2011.
InfraWorks is one of the easiest and fastest tools to use when showing a design concept or urban planning. In this class, we go over how you can put together your site with existing data from, for example, Google Earth™ with your own data from AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software and using Leica HDS point cloud scans in the city model. We go over all the new user interface ribbons, show how to speed the design process, and share proposed infrastructure models to give designers a head start. Learn how to communicate visually rich infrastructure proposals to facilitate faster decision making and communicate design intent to stakeholders more effectively. Learn to create models of the existing natural and built environment quickly and easily so you can depict the local environment more realistically. Manage infrastructure proposals better by creating and managing multiple alternatives in a single model. See how to overlay GIS data by creating 3D thematic maps to help make more informed decisions, and create and import point cloud scans for stronger reality-captured models.
