Walking Paths With InfraWorks: Mobility Simulations

After designing a new parking lot or bus station in InfraWorks, how do you analyze the traffic flow and patterns? Vote for this class, and we’ll analyze the traffic and pedestrian flow of a newly designed parking lot using the InfraWorks Mobility Simulation Panel.

Also, we’ll discuss what the different color-coding analysis results are and how to manipulate them. We will also generate a mobility simulation animation that can be played within the Mobility Simulations panel. Finally, we’ll address how we get all this information out of InfraWorks so that it can be used in other traffic analysis software. Most importantly, the Mobility Simulation panel enables you to specify demands of both vehicles and pedestrians, as well as profiles, vehicle types, intersection types, and many other variables, which we’ll discuss in class. The session will feature InfraWorks and specifically, the Mobility Simulation Panel.

The Pressure of Content Catalog Editor

Need a new part for a pressure network but don’t know how to make it? Find out more by voting for this class.

Pressure Networks in Civil 3D come with many different parts, such as bends, valves, and tees. But, not everything that you may need is there. In this session, we’ll go over what is required to make a part for Pressure Networks in Civil 3D using Content Catalog Editor. You will learn how to create, manipulate and implement new parts for Pressure Networks using Content Catalog Editor, as well as how to update the Pressure Network Catalog. We’ll also cover how to use those newly created parts from Content Catalog Editor in a pressure network in your model. We’ll demonstrate the workflow and process of editing and creating Pressure Network Parts in Civil 3D and creating a pressure network. In addition, we’ll review best practices, workarounds, shortcuts, and the pros and cons of using pressure networks in Civil 3D.

Round and Round We Go: Roundabout with Vehicle Tracking, Civil 3D and InfraWorks

How many steps does it take you to fully design a roundabout after you create your alignments and profiles? It can take as few as 3! Find out how by voting for this course.

In this course, we’ll create alignments, profiles, and a fully designed roundabout using three infrastructure products. Vehicle Tracking is your solution for creating a corridor with a fully designed roundabout in Civil 3D. We’ll cover best practices, workarounds, shortcuts, and the pros and cons of using Vehicle Tracking. You will also see examples of projects in which a variety of products can be used, as well as methods for modifying roundabouts. You will also create a client presentation of the design for a project. Lastly, we’ll explore how roundabouts work in InfraWorks and how they translate into Civil 3D in a preliminary project. Utilizing your infrastructure tools to create a roundabout is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles with Vehicle Tracking and Civil 3D

Autodesk Vehicle Tracking is much more than just vehicle swept path analysis. Come join us in this hands-on lab to find out for yourself how Vehicle Tracking in Civil 3D and InfraWorks can improve your project decision making by voting for this class.

Vehicle Tracking allows even beginner users to make educated decisions concerning their individual projects. During this lab, we’ll explore all the functions of Vehicle Tracking and design the following: starting a project in InfraWorks and then importing it into Vehicle Tracking to design a parking lot; ensure our project design meets city standards; utilize the Vehicle Tracking information for detailed grading design; create a roundabout within the project; and much, much more. After this hands-on lab, you will have gained new skills that you can take back to the office and show others the many different ways to use Vehicle Tracking software, Civil 3D and InfraWorks. This session features Vehicle Tracking, AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks.

Stormy Weather: When to Use Storm and Sanitary Analysis or Analyze Gravity Network

In this class, we’ll explore SSA (Storm and Sanitary Sewer Analysis) and Analyze Gravity Network to discover how you can use these tools to design a complete storm sewer system. In this lab, we’ll start with a project in Civil 3D and then export that project into SSA. From there, you’ll modify and add storm sewer information to the project, apply rainfall intensities, basin information, times of concentration and more. After we have all the design information entered into the project, we’ll analyze the project to discover where pipes may need to be enlarged or reduced in size, and then make those necessary changes. Lastly, we’ll export the final design of the project to Civil 3D and then update the pipe network in Civil 3D. We’ll apply new labels to the pipes in profile to display the new HGL and EGL information from SSA. We’ll also explore the new Analyze Gravity Network option in Civil 3D on our project. This class will feature SSA in Civil 3D.

Inventing the Civil World – Inventor for Civil 3D and InfraWorks Users

Can you handle the pressure of inventing for civil? If you need a bit of help, give this class a thumbs-up.

This is a down-and-dirty course in Inventor and Inventor LT for Civil Engineers, Civil Designers and Civil CAD Managers. We’ll cover the skills needed in Inventor to create parts and assemblies specifically for infrastructure projects. We’ll then add those parts to Parts Editor and export them to gravity or pressure networks in both Civil 3D and InfraWorks. During the class, we’ll design a curb inlet in three parts, import it into Parts Editor, and place it into an assembly. From the assemblies and families in Parts Editor, we’ll create a Civil 3D Parts catalog. Lastly, we’ll import the new catalog into Civil 3D and apply the new part to a storm drainage system. As a bonus, we’ll repeat all these steps and show you how to import the new part into InfraWorks and apply it to a storm drainage system there. If the gravity of your infrastructure designs is serious enough that you need to reinvent parts, this class is for you!
