Working with data sets between single-precision, non-geospatially aware applications (such as 3ds Max software, Revit software, and Inventor software) and double-precision, geospatially aware applications (like AutoCAD software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, InfraWorks software, ReCap software, and Navisworks software) can be difficult and frustrating. This class will help you to better understand this confusing process and explore several effective and proven methods for exchanging data sets between these applications with a minimal loss of production time.
- Learn how to choose the ideal projection systems for geo-spatial data exchange
- Learn how to create custom coordinate systems for exchanging data between single- and double-precision CAD and design applications
- Learn how to create and modify simple scripts for translating data inside AutoCAD and AutoCAD Civil 3D
- Learn how to prepare CAD assets for export and consequently bring the resulting models back to CAD in the correct geo-spatial location
Mark Kauffman’s animation career stretches back to the wild and wooly days of the early 1990s. In 1995 he co-founded Paradigm Ranch Animation Studios, working on movie and television projects. In 1998 Mark joined the faculty at The Art Institute of Colorado, training students in the animation, graphic design, web, industrial design, and video programs until he left in 2012. In 2003 he joined the Project Visualization Group at Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB), now WSP, serving as the team’s technical lead. As lead he manages all technical aspects of production, manages the render farm, and oversees the group’s research and development and new technology initiatives. In addition to his duties with the Project Visualization Group, Mark serves as a certified 3ds Max software trainer in PB’s Autodesk Training Center, and he is the president of the Colorado AAUGA group, and a founding member of the Visualization Society of Colorado.
