We will explore the underutilized, not so well known, and very powerful subassemblies included with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016 software. First we must understand that there is nothing generic about Generic Subassemblies; these powerful tools can link our concepts to our finished design. Next we will consider multiple scenarios—if the design is to be complete, then we will provide some conditions for success, using Horizontal and Vertical Conditional Subassemblies to create complex corridors while limiting the amount of overall assemblies and providing a better design.
- Learn how to use generic subassemblies to extract, apply, and modify design information to our corridor
- Learn how to apply the correct Conditional Subassemblies to enhance and expedite the design process
- Learn how to create assembly using Links and Conditional Subassembly Components
- Learn how to construct a Corridor and assign necessary targets, using the Assemblies created
Sean Hulbert is a registered professional engineer in the state of Oregon, and a technical support specialist at Autodesk, Inc., (supporting AutoCAD Civil 3D software and InfraWorks 360 software). Prior to working at Autodesk, Hulbert worked in the civil engineering industry for almost 25 years. He was always a key advocate for technological advancement at the consulting firms where he was employed, introducing concepts and workflows for laser scanning and multidimensional modeling. By capitalizing on already-owned software, he spearheaded the corporation’s evolution into a multiplatform design environment. Hulbert was responsible for CADD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) education, as well as for creating and modifying policies and procedures to keep up with ever-changing technology. Using his knowledge and practical hands-on experience, he was able to successfully introduce new technology and ideas to an existing environment, creating a desire to use BIM concepts and workflows on transportation projects.
