    In this class we are going to look at how we can use the surfaces created by the Autodesk® Geotechnical Module in AutoCAD Civil 3D software to model and present geological data. The class covers some general tips on editing the surfaces to generate geotechnical features such as lenses and faults. Next we look in detail at how these can be presented in a fence diagram. A fence diagram is a 3D geologic cross-section that allows easy visualization of the stratigraphic changes in the subsurface. The 3D sections are displayed in position on the 3D model, a great aid for understanding and presenting geotechnical data; it also looks cool. This class is designed to assist you in understanding the techniques in modeling and visualizing substrata to better understand and present information.

    Key Learnings
