Description

Description

This presentation will review and demonstrate the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) software-development effort to implement AutoCAD Civil 3D software for state and consultant designers. We will examine a sampling of custom tools and applications created by FDOT on the Custom Ribbon to increase productivity and plans consistency using AutoCAD Civil 3D software. We will cover the following sample of FDOT applications: FDOT Takeoff Manager—an application that enables users to create automated Quantity reports in Microsoft Excel; FDOT Entity Manager—which enables the user to draw graphical entities with pay item data for Quantity Takeoff (QTO) preattached, or place the pay item data on entities after they are drawn; FDOT Signs—which enables the user to design sign assemblies and place them into the drawing with pay items attached; and Create File—an application that enables users to create files based on discipline and sync with the proper Templates. The newly created files are then saved to the project folder hierarchy. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D. AIA Approved

Target Audience

Target Audience

Anyone interested in the implementation of Civil 3D from a user and support perspective with interest in a small sample of what FDOT has in its Free State Kit. CADD Managers will be interested in how FDOT maintain standards enforcement in its workflow
