This class will show 5 examples that will help you to understand survey functionality within AutoCAD Civil 3D softwareand they're not just limited to survey tasks. These 5 real-world examples will show how data misinterpretation can result in costly engineering mistakes. You'll also discover how to use a project in both assumed coordinates and real-world systems; how to automate cadastral and topographical feature creation tasks; how to add and manage extended data to survey points and features; and how to use survey data to set up repeatable corridor targeting scenarios. We will do a deep and rapid dive into these subjects and you will leave amazed by the variety of things you can do using the survey functionality in AutoCAD Civil 3D software.
- Learn about grid-to-ground measure and how to avoid engineering mistakes
- Learn how to set up automatic field-to-finish so that base map and topographic features are instantly generated
- Learn how to add extended data to points and figures for use in cadastral, GIS, and BIM systems
- Understand how survey figures may be used for repeatable corridor targeting
Lucy Kuhns is an experienced civil engineer, mechanical engineer, and land surveyor with expertise in design and build for infrastructure. She first joined Autodesk, Inc., in 2006 as a civil technical specialist, and is now an Autodesk premium support technical specialist working with enterprise customers to guide adoption and develop solutions for infrastructure-based projects and processes related to Building Information Modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction. Kuhns’s career began as a mechanical engineer working on helicopters for Hughes Aircraft Company, off-road vehicles for Honda Motor Company, and bi-modal rail equipment for a startup in which she was a principal. Later she turned her focus to civil engineering and land surveying and was a principal in a professional practice in New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. Believing that technology would set her company above the rest, she was an early adopter of CAD, GPS, high-accuracy geographic information system (GIS), and automation techniques both in the office and in the field, and Autodesk software was an important key to that success.
