* Planes, Trains and Automobile with Vehicle Tracking – How to use Autodesk Vehicle Tracking

Autodesk Vehicle Tracking is much more than just vehicle swept path analysis. Come join us in this presentation to find out for yourself how Vehicle Tracking in Civil 3D and InfraWorks can improve your project decision making. Vehicle Tracking allows even beginner users to make educated decisions concerning their individual projects. During this lab, we’ll explore all the functions of Vehicle Tracking and design the following: starting a project in InfraWorks and then importing it into Vehicle Tracking to design a parking lot ; ensure our project design meets city standards; utilize the Vehicle Tracking information for detailed grading design; create a roundabout within the project; and much, much more. After this hands-on lab, you will have gained new skills that you can take back to the office and show others the many different ways to use Vehicle Tracking software, Civil 3D and InfraWorks. This session features Vehicle Tracking, AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks.

Drawing with MicroStation for Civil Designers

In the MicroStation CONNECT Edition, there are a host of placement tools that allow you to create new drawing elements efficiently and accurately using tools such as Place SmartLine, Place Circle, Create Region, and others. AccuDraw is an intuitive drawing aid that helps you to define exact distances and angles while creating new elements or manipulating existing ones. In this course, you will utilize the Place SmartLine tool along with the aid of AccuDraw for precision placement of the lines which will make up the subdivision for your project.

OpenBridge Designer Development Updates

Develop intelligent, 3D, parametric bridge models for your highway projects with Bentley’s OpenBridge Designer. Easily manage changes with built‐in, user‐defined relationships among bridge components and reference DGN models throughout the lifecycle of the bridge. Learn how OpenBridge Designer’s integrated workflow minimizes errors and improves efficiency. OpenBridge Designer leverages OpenRoads geometry data (terrain, alignments, profile, and superelevation) ensuring the bridge and roadway geometry are the same and that data transfers directly into LEAP Bridge and RM Bridge for detailed design and analysis.

* New Site Design Workflows Make for Better Projects

Learn how Bentley’s new site design workflows will simplify the design workflow, helping engineers focus more on engineering and less on drafting. Our clients pay for the best designs and our goal is to do just that. But with ever changing regulations and pressure of time constraints, it can be overwhelming for professionals to deliver their best work. Come see how harnessing the power of parametrics and modeling will let you spend more time creating and reduce the drafting burden. The time saved in these new workflows will allow you to do more in the same amount of time. These workflows lets engineers deliver the best project that meets requirements.

Controlling the Display of Designs for Civil Designers

In the MicroStation CONNECT Edition, there are many ways you can control how you view your designs. In this course, you learn how to control the display of levels in both the active and those of attached references. Set View Attributes by creating a Display Style that will be matched up to a Display Rule. You will then create a Clip Volume, which will limit the region that is displayed within a view to the area of that around the project site, and then finally preserving all these view settings through the creation of a Saved View.

* Integrating LiDAR and Image data for Bridges in the Bentley environment

LiDAR systems technology produce rich content which can be used beyond the surveying and mapping deliverables. Besides collecting topography information more effectively than any other survey method, this technology can be used to provide supplementary information to the design process. We will demonstrate the use of TopoDOT to compare design to field conditions for clearances, clash detection and surface monitoring. We will also show how easy it is to create data cross-sections to place elevations and label missing assets.

Migrating Programs to MicroStation CONNECT and OpenRoads

In this session, we will look at a mostly non-programming approach to what you might expect when moving add-ins from V8i to CONNECT. Based on our experiences with FDOT and GDOT, I will highlight our key take-aways and attempt to answer the following questions – What might you expect, what things should you consider, and, is it really going to take a monster re-write to get my program running in CONNECT? And that final question will be answered with a solid… maybe.

* BIM Up Your Projects with OpenRoads

You may have been asked, ‘Do you use BIM?,’ ‘Are you BIM compliant?,’ or even, ‘What is BIM?’. But, the real question is ‘Are you already BIM-ing?’ In this session, we will discuss how OpenRoads is BIM. We will look at what it means in a practical sense, how it looks in production, and how to take advantage of information modeling in your designs and workflows. We will discuss questions like: What is an OpenRoads BIM model?, When does BIM start?, Why should I care about BIM?

* Solid Modeling using Autodesk Inventor for Bridge and Drainage

This session will show the basics of creating parametric models using Inventor. Using parametric modeling, solid models can define families of geometry used in preliminary Civil design. These include, but are not limited to, bridge components, drainage structures, and other 3D components used to visualize a new construction site. The solid model can then be passed to downstream applications for analysis and detailing as the requirements for the project move from the layout phase to the design phase. Emphasis here will be on creating parametric sketches that use variables to create families of like components.
