If you are reading from the Benelux region, this is an event not to be missed.
With over a hundred attendance last year and looking like we are going to break that attendance with ease this year.
We have Dave Simeone (Civil 3D Product Manager) and Richard Parker (Navisworks Product Manager) presenting alongside myself and Neil Brooker and of course the user group elite that make up this amazing group.
So you should be starting to look at 2012 release now and some of you I know are checking out the release for full adoption/roll out.
Of course Civil 3D is a localised product in many countries which is very important to our industry and this is year I hopefully have stepped up a gear with more content in the kit for our users in UK and Ireland.
I have attached below a short presentation on the main items that have been covered with full specification available through the toolpalette in Civil 3D on installation.
Here’s a little tip for you when working in Civil 3D, and other AutoCAD based programs.
How do you normally access the Properties dialog for an object? I know how I have done, until now. Select the object of interest and then pick Properties in the Ribbon, or in some cases by right click and then Properties.
I just, by “accident” found this way, being much faster – and no buttons or right clicks Simply click your object on screen, a Surface for example. Then, when it is selected, you double click on it! Then the Properties dialog pops up… Simple and officient
Glad spring (almost summer) is here. I see a lot of interest in the 2012 release of Civil 3D. That is always positive
I don’t know how many of you have seen this, and I wasn’t aware of it myself before either, but if you have selected graphics/objects on screen and you want to clear your selection – how do you normally do?
I usually hit Escape button… But that forces me to move the left hand up to the keyboard. Lazy as I am I was glad when I heard we don’t have to do that. Simply click and hold your right mouse button, then release. Clear! I am pretty sure that is a simple AutoCAD trick, but still – it was new to me
Autodesk Project River Analysis Extension for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2012 and AutoCAD® Map 3D® 2012, a technology preview of new infrastructure planning and design functionality from the AEC Infrastructure Modeling Product Line Group, is available for download and trial on Autodesk Labs.
Project River Analysis Extension for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2012 and AutoCAD® Map 3D® 2012 (available in both 32-bit and 64-bit) is a sophisticated river modeling software package that supports HEC-RAS within the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 and AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 environment. This technology preview of River Analysis makes it easier than ever before for infrastructure planners, engineers and designers to compute water surface profiles for modeling rivers, bridges, culverts, spillways, levees, floodplain and floodway delineations, stream diversions, channel improvements, and split flows.
This River Analysis extension for Civil 3D 2012 and Map 3D 2012 makes it extremely easy to:
Automate HEC-RAS cross section cutting, water surface analysis, flood plain mapping, and all related modeling tasks.
Utilize numerous automation mapping tools for extracting cross sections from various digital terrain sources including contours, TINs, DTMs, DEMs, LiDAR data, survey files, surveyed cross sections, etc.
Perform sophisticated bridge and culvert analysis as well as automating the process of designing and analyzing roadway crossings.
Automate mapping of bank station locations, channel and overland flow lengths, levee locations, ineffective flow areas, Manning’s roughness data from topographic map data.
Perform automated bridge scour computations
Automatically generate floodplain and floodway maps
