Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn the difference between automatic and manual labels
  • Learn the interaction between assemblies, corridors, and code set styles
  • Learn multiple methods for managing automatic labels in section-view groups
  • Learn how to create and edit manual section-view labels

Description

Description

You've built some corridors in AutoCAD Civil 3D software. You've even created some surfaces from them. But when you get to the cross sections, you just can't get the labels right without some MTEXT or EXPLODES! This class will teach you all the tricks for creating and maintaining intelligent, dynamic cross-section labels. We'll examine all of the connections between corridor code set styles, marker label styles, assemblies, and section view groups. You'll learn how to keep cross-section labels readable and live from an entire corridor all the way down to a single custom label. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Target Audience

Eric Arneson

Eric Arneson is part of a Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Team that provides support, technical expertise, and future direction for highway engineering tools. Their scope of workflow ranges from receiving data from mapping/surveying through the entire design effort to construction. The team is currently implementing standards and workflows for creating 3D model surfaces as a primary deliverable in design and using those surfaces in highway construction projects. The team is also evaluating and implementing further expansion of intelligent modeling topics in highway design. Arneson has 20 years of experience with WisDOT in highway design, construction, geographic information system, and supporting engineering software.
