There's a misconception that AutoCAD Civil 3D software is not very good at using large point-cloud data sets. This class will squash these rumors and open eyes to the actual ease. This class will cover the use of AutoCAD Civil 3D with Leica's CloudWorx add-on. We'll examine the ease of navigating through the different point-cloud data sets inside the AutoCAD Civil 3D environment. We'll touch on ways to verify accuracies of previous tradition surveys, and we'll examine newer collections procedures like terrestrial LIDAR and unmanned autonomous systems (UAS) point clouds. We'll show you several examples of projects with complex existing conditions that created hurdles in design. We'll show how these hurdles can be overcome by using simple add-on tools like CloudWorx.
