This round-table discussion will elaborate on how to create corridors for railroad projects in AutoCAD Civil 3D software. The speaker will introduce the potential of applying premade railroad structures (Microsoft Visual Basic .NET) in designs consisting of 2, 3, or more tracks. He will share the experience of organizing teamwork in big projects between several engineers and/or other project members. The speaker will also share practical experience regarding why working with Vault software is superior to working with a server that uses civil-data shortcuts. The discussion will include the analysis of a work model (AutoCAD Civil 3D software plus Vault software) that enables an engineer to create a digital 3D model and a manager to monitor and control the progress of the project without specific knowledge of the software.
