    Having clear 3D visualization methods of the subsurface geology layers is vital for clients and the wider construction team to better understand the ground conditions and risks. In this class, you'll learn how to use the new Geotechnical Module 2018 Fence Diagram tool to create clear 3D visualizations of the subsurface layers, together with additional methods beyond the current capabilities of the Geotechnical Module to visualize other types of downhole data, such as, water levels, strength parameters, or contamination in AutoCAD Civil 3D software. The class will teach the steps and workflows required to create Fence Diagrams and cover, considerations on the classification of strata, techniques to update and edit the fence diagrams, and the workflow to share the visualizations with InfraWorks software. The class will also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of sharing fence diagrams and when you would share them in preference of geotechnical surfaces.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover the benefits of using fence diagrams to share geotechnical data
    • Understand the steps involved in creating fence diagrams
    • Learn how to add the fence diagrams into InfraWorks
    • Discover additional methods to visualize other boring data beyond the Geotechnical Module
