Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn how to create paths using InfraWorks 360 road tools: Design and Component Roads
  • Learn how to use AutoCAD Civil 3D to covert imported alignment(s) to Feature Lines, and create individual paths for vehicle movement (lanes merge, bus turnout, and so on)
  • Learn how to use 3ds Max and the Civil View extension to assign vehicles to imported paths, set speed, direction, vehicle type, starts, stops, and so on
  • Learn how to use InfraWorks 360 to import and configure the animation file(s), and account for transformation shift on import

Description

Description

Starting in InfraWorks 360 software, we will create paths using InfraWorks 360 road tools, specifically design and component roads. We will then use AutoCAD Civil 3D software to convert imported InfraWorks 360 alignment(s) to Feature Lines, and create individual paths for vehicle movement: a single center-line path, merging lanes, and a bus turnout. In 3ds Max software we will use the Civil View extension to assign vehicles to imported paths, set speed, direction, vehicle type, starts, stops, and so on. Back in InfraWorks 360 software, we will import and configure the animation file(s), account for transformation shift on import, and watch as our vehicles “drive” the model. The round-trip of data will flow like this: InfraWorks 360 to AutoCAD Civil 3D to 3ds Max plus Civil View back to InfraWorks 360. This session features InfraWorks 360, 3ds Max, and AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Willy Campbell

Willy Campbell has spent the last 17 years in the civil industry with a focus on roadway design, site design, and visualizations. He has worked for civil firms in Utah, California, Hawaii, and Louisiana. His focused products have been AutoCAD Civil 3D software and InfraWorks 360 software, along with 3ds Max software for the visualization side. Campbell has worked for Autodesk, Inc., for 3-plus years, starting in Frontline Technical Support, and moving over to Premium Support in early 2015.

Dave Lawrence

David Lawrence first used AutoCAD Version 9 software when designing a car stereo speaker enclosure before he could drive. He felt that incorporating revisions and complex designs was too slow with pencil, and he has continued to champion efficient ways to design and communicate complicated design concepts ever since. He did so for 18 years with URS Corporation, and he is now with AECOM Technology Corporation, where he leads a Design Visualization Team from the AECOM Phoenix office. He is proficient working with most products from Autodesk, Inc.; ESRI; and Adobe Systems Incorporated, in addition to others. His team is advocating for the integration of InfraWorks 360 software into civil, federal, state, and local projects throughout Alaska, Mexico, Canada, and the Western United States.
