In this roundtable session, we present the story of Seattle City Light's vision and decision-making in implementing model-based design using AutoCAD® Utility Design software. This case study presents the development of the business case that utilities must consider when moving towards model-based design. In this session, we also describe new workflows and outline challenges of dealing with a downtown meshed network and a looped-radial network together in a single design tool. Come and discuss potential implementation of AutoCAD Utility Design at your utility.

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.
Aufbereitung von Projektinformationen für Neubauprojekte<br/><br/>für Bauherren und Bürgerbeteiligungsveranstaltungen. Anhand von aktuellen Projektbeispielen wird die Verwendung von Infraworks in der Übermittlung von komplexen Planungsinhalten an den Bauherren bzw. Bürger vorgestellt.<br/><br/>Projektbeispiele: Stuttgart 21, Krankenhausneubauten, Messeneubau, Leuzetunnel Stuttgart.
Wie bekomme ich einen Höhenplan der meinen Vorstellungen entspricht? Ein Fahrplan durch die Welt der Höhenpläne.<br/><br/>Dazu gehört die Erstellung von aussagekräftigen Höhenplänen. Lernen Sie den Höhenplan grafisch zu gestalten und nach Ihren Wünschen zu beschriften. Profitieren Sie von den Möglichkeiten der Stile für Höhenplan und Datenbänder.
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.
