The new generation of AutoCAD Utility Design software introduced rules-driven, model-based design to the utility industry. The rules engine within Utility Design provides enormous flexibility within a structured framework to create, edit, and manage the design rules. This hands-on lab provides you with an overview of the rules engine and then focuses on several examples of practical rule definition for styling, material ordering, cost estimation, and feature identifiers. In addition, we discuss practical considerations for defining and managing rules.
- List and describe the types of rules supported in AutoCAD Utility Design
- Configure Utility Design rules for styling, material ordering, feature IDs, and more
- Explain the basics of Utility Design rules definition, use, and management
- Demonstrate the steps to edit and test Utility Design rules
