With Subassembly Composer for AutoCAD Civil 3D software, users build custom subassemblies to drive their corridor models to the next level. But what about creating subassemblies that are useful across many projects? In this class we will demonstrate how to successfully parameterize a custom subassembly, complete with targets. We will also explore a 4-sided example that Sundt Construction, Inc., has found very useful in corridor modeling.
- Learn how to create a custom subassembly
- Discover input and output parameters
- Learn how to handle subassembly targets
- Learn how to parameterize subassemblies for reuse
Eric Cylwik is the modeling engineer for Sundt Construction's Transportation and Infrastructure division. Before working exclusively for the Heavy Civil division, Cylwik focused on adapting Building Information Modeling (BIM) models from the office to the field for Sundt's Concrete Group. He now focuses on creating virtual construction models that highlight technology’s capability to enhance the way construction is performed in the field for horizontal construction. Focusing on infrastructure, Cylwik has been able to capitalize on parametric modeling to create construction-quality bridge, road, and trench models that are used for survey surfaces, machine control, quantity takeoffs, utility coordination, constructability reviews, and visualizations. Cylwik has helped Sundt procure over $1 billion of alternative delivery method projects. He graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in design studies with an emphasis in digital visualization. He is also a certified professional in several vertical and horizontal BIM and virtual design and construction software programs.
