CV6744: Take the Tedium Out of Your Corridors: Auxiliary Corridors for More Dynamic Models

  • Save to my AU Saved

Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn how to create more dynamic corridor models with advanced targeting strategies and baseline linking
  • Learn how to respond to design changes much quicker by utilizing Auxiliary corridors
  • Learn how to incorporate unique assemblies and subassemblies to allow the 'what-if' question to be asked at any time in the project
  • Learn how to build truly detailed corridor models without the tedious profile creation

Description

Description

Creating true Building Information Modeling (BIM) corridors that yield proper surfaces, quantities, and cross sections can often be fairly tedious. And this is a big deal, because that's the promise of BIM, after all. You may have found yourself creating many different alignments and profiles in odd intersections or cul-de-sacs, for example. The problem is that managing the values in these profiles can be fairly tedious and error prone, slowing down your workflows and bogging down your project. This is where Auxilliary corridors come in. Through this strategy we can create background corridors that dynamically link baseline profiles to primary baselines. If this sounds confusing, it's because it's hard to put into words. You just have to come to this class. With this strategy you can create detailed, complex corridor models that are more powerful than anything you've probably seen before. The promises of BIM will finally come home once you start implementing Auxiliary corridors in your complex projects.
