AutoCAD Civil 3D software's Pressure Networks is great out of the box if you use mechanical or push-on fittings, but what if you use welded or other fittings? Not to worryyou can build your own custom parts catalog. Learn how to create the 3D model needed for your custom part, how to export the data, and how to include it in your new catalog using Content Catalog Editor. Once your parts are in your catalog, we will learn how to create the pressure network parts list to create your pressure network. Finally, you will learn how to share your design with stakeholders using InfraWorks 360 software.
Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite Users that utilize Civil 3D and Infraworks in their workflows.
Shawn Choisser received his AA from Orange Coast College in California in 2002, and he is currently a senior principal pipeline designer for SPEC Services, Inc., in Fountain Valley, California. Shawn has been a pipeline designer for SPEC since 1999, providing utility coordination and pipeline relocation services for oil and gas clients. He also continually works with users in SPEC's Pipeline Design Group to customize, implement, and train on workflows in order to integrate the multiple software platforms used. Shawn has been using AutoCAD software since 1999 and he is an AutoCAD Certified Professional. He started attending Autodesk University in 2002.
Stephen received his bachelor's degree in civil engineering and his master's degree in Transportation Engineering from CSU, Pomona. He is now a lead pipeline engineer and designer for SPEC services where he primarily designs oil and gas pipelines for various clients. He started attending AU in 2012 where he has been continually inspired by the work of those around him. Stephen has brought back many concepts learned from others at AU and implemented them at SPEC services. Such concepts include pressure pipe networks, Infraworks, and 3D printing to name a few. Stephen is currently studying for his PE examination which has been a lifelong dream to attain.
This 90-minute round table will focus on many topics, including: the use of existing data available from various online sources; the available cloud applications, including the Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform, LiDAR (light detection and ranging) repositories, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS); and the use of AutoCAD Civil 3D software with InfraWorks 2015 software for preliminary project analysis. On the topic agenda are online data sources, including Bing Maps, Google Earth, USGS, and state-run LiDAR repositories. We will also discuss workflows, data access, data sharing, data validation, integration, online (cloud) applications, and ReCap software.
In every rail Building Information Modeling (BIM) project that you make, you need the most effective options to help you make the right decision. InfraWorks software can help you to do this. With the software's capacity to analyze many scenarios, you can make several proposals and choose the most effective one to fulfill the basic premises of the project, and you can show these proposals in easy form to all stakeholders. Then you can use the Rail Layout Module in AutoCAD Civil 3D software to make the final project, and, with all analysis made, you can generate reports and the final documentation and deliver the most effective rail project you've ever created.
