Description

Description

In this class we are going to look at how we can use the surfaces created by the Autodesk® Geotechnical Module in AutoCAD Civil 3D software to model and present geological data. The class covers some general tips on editing the surfaces to generate geotechnical features such as lenses and faults. Next we look in detail at how these can be presented in a fence diagram. A fence diagram is a 3D geologic cross-section that allows easy visualization of the stratigraphic changes in the subsurface. The 3D sections are displayed in position on the 3D model, a great aid for understanding and presenting geotechnical data; it also looks cool. This class is designed to assist you in understanding the techniques in modeling and visualizing substrata to better understand and present information.

Target Audience

Target Audience

CAD technicians, CAD managers, civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, and geologists who need to use Civil 3D to incorporate and visualize geotechnical data

Gary Morin

Gary originally trained as a Civil Engineer and has over 27 years experience of working in the production and support of a range of GIS and CAD software. Whilst he was at Allied Images he was part of the team that developed DeskMapper, the forerunner of AutoCAD Map in the UK and was the first AutoCAD Map distributor in the UK. Since then he has specialised on MapGuide and AutoCAD Map and has implemented many award winning sites. He is now the Technical Director and Co-founder of Keynetix, formed in 2000 to specialise in Geotechnical Data Management software. He is responsible for the design and support services for a range of products designed to manage the Geotechnical data journey, these including HoleBASE SI, the Autodesk Geotechnical Module and the advance HoleBASE SI extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D.
