Site grading with AutoCAD Civil 3D software has traditionally fallen short of what we think of as true 3D modeling. We typically generate a finished grade surface, but we're not truly modeling our site, including curb, sidewalk, ponds, subgrade, and so on. Well, all this changes with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 software and the new features that finally make site design with Corridors a realistic option. New features, such as Corridor Baselines from Feature Lines and "bow-tie" cleanup, enable much more-dynamic and more-stable site models then previously found with traditional Feature Line-only and Grading Object workflows. This class will walk through how to set up a truly dynamic Corridor site model, showing realistic application of new and long-hidden features in AutoCAD Civil 3D. We'll then show how you can harness this data-rich model, including Quantity Takeoff (QTO) in both AutoCAD Civil 3D and Navisworks software, as well as site creation in Revit software. Come join us and learn how site grading just got a whole lot better!
- Understand how to build dynamic and stable Corridor site models with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 new features
- Learn how to create truly 3D models of your site, including curb, subgrade, sidewalks, and so on
- Learn how to extract data-rich AutoCAD Solids from your Corridor for use in Revit and Navisworks
- Learn how to make your project architect happy with detailed 3D model exports, eliminating virtually all rework typically required in Revit
