Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn about grid-to-ground measure and how to avoid engineering mistakes
  • Learn how to set up automatic field-to-finish so that base map and topographic features are instantly generated
  • Learn how to add extended data to points and figures for use in cadastral, GIS, and BIM systems
  • Understand how survey figures may be used for repeatable corridor targeting

Description

Description

This class will show 5 examples that will help you to understand survey functionality within AutoCAD Civil 3D software—and they're not just limited to survey tasks. These 5 real-world examples will show how data misinterpretation can result in costly engineering mistakes. You'll also discover how to use a project in both assumed coordinates and real-world systems; how to automate cadastral and topographical feature creation tasks; how to add and manage extended data to survey points and features; and how to use survey data to set up repeatable corridor targeting scenarios. We will do a deep and rapid dive into these subjects and you will leave amazed by the variety of things you can do using the survey functionality in AutoCAD Civil 3D software.

Target Audience

Lucy Kuhns

Lucy Kuhns has experience that spans the practices of engineering, architecture, and construction. She began as a mechanical engineer designing and testing helicopters for Hughes Aircraft Company; off-road vehicles for Honda Motor Company, Ltd.; and bi-modal rail equipment for a small startup company. After an off-road vehicle test crash in the California desert, she began exploring and studying civil engineering and architecture. She later moved to New Mexico where she joined a civil engineering/surveying firm and led the company through the early and often painful process of implementing advanced technologies. She states, 'We worked smarter with fewer people and spent a fortune on new technology, and we competed with the big guys—and often won!' It was a natural progression for her to move into software applications engineering, training, and support in early 2001. She now works with the Autodesk, Inc., team of product support specialists offering Enterprise Support Solutions for the infrastructure industry.
