This class will demonstrate the unique form of civil engineering that is done at Walt Disney Imagineering and how AutoCAD Civil 3D software has helped to create the complex infrastructures that are a part of Disney's theme parks and resorts. The modeling engines in Civil 3D are taken to the limit to meet the immense design requirements. With drawing data containing over tens of thousands of model objects, built to real-world specs and spanning multiple projects, the “I” in Building Information Modeling (BIM) has taken on a whole new meaning: Intelligence. In this class, we will focus on a project-specific journey and see how the age-old profession of civil engineering uses the capabilities of Civil 3D to meet these unique demands.

Key Learnings

  • Implement Civil 3D design models effectively into the BIM workflow
  • Describe the complexity of infrastructure design that can be achieved using Civil 3D
  • Explain the data management process involved in complex infrastructure design
  • Combine both visualization and engineering to achieve a harmonious design
