The Geotechnical Module 2017 is now available to all AutoCAD Civil 3D software subscription orders. This hands-on lab will show you the basis of getting started with the Geotechnical Module in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2017 software. Within minutes of starting the class you will learn how to access and import subsurface geology data in AutoCAD Civil 3D software. The class will go on to show you how quickly you can visualize boreholes in context of your site, create multiple strata surfaces, and even generate geotechnical profile views containing borehole log strips all in a few minutes—this would normally take many hours. By the end of the session you will have a great understanding of how the Geotechnical Module works, enabling you to incorporate geotechnical subsurface data in your infrastructure designs using AutoCAD Civil 3D software. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D.
- Understand the fundamentals of the Geotechnical Module
- Learn how to create a project and import geotechnical data into AutoCAD Civil 3D
- Learn how to create and visualize 3D boreholes and geology strata surfaces
- Learn how to create dynamic geotechnical profile views that display borehole log strips
Gary Morin originally trained as a civil engineer and has over 30 years of experience working in the production and support of a range of geographic information and CAD software systems. He is now the Technical Director of Keynetix, which he co-founded in 2000 to specialize in geotechnical data management software. He heads up the geotechnical Building Information Modeling (BIM) development, and is responsible for the design and support services for a range of products designed to manage geotechnical data in the BIM process, including the HoleBASE SI Extension, the Geotechnical Module from Autodesk, Inc., and the advance HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D software. In recent years Morin has been at the forefront of geotechnical BIM and how it can change working practices to enable a better understanding and integration of geotechnical data into the wider construction process
