Learn AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 at your own speed
(PRWEB) May 20, 2014
Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 Tutorial," a course designed to get student and professional engineers up and running with the powerful modeling capabilities of AutoCAD Civil 3D.
AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 differs from regular AutoCAD versions in the way that it manages project data and the relationship between data and its display. Civil 3D supports Building Information Modeling workflows. Using a dynamic engineering model, it allows for better modeling and collaboration possibilities, helping teams explore civil engineering projects fully through the digital model before construction begins.
Infinite Skills' Learning AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 Tutorial Video provides a working foundation, explaining the most important tools for designing in AutoCAD Civil 3D, and exploring several real-world applications such as modeling corridor and pipe networks, as well as the programs capabilities for collaboration through the cloud.
Course author Seth Cohen is currently a vice president of training at CADManage, a consulting company for AutoCAD Civil 3D and other CAD programs. He is an AutoCAD 2012 Certified professional, and an AutoCAD Civil 3D implementation expert with a level five certification as a geospatial technical specialist.
Cohen's experience in training and using AutoCAD Civil 3D makes the "Learning AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 Tutorial," a fun and effective way to quickly put this complex program to use in engineering practice.
Following an opening chapter exploring the basic interface of AutoCAD Civil 3D, its workspaces, the ribbon, toolspace, and properties, among other features, Cohen covers the key elements of AutoCAD Civil 3D models, starting with data points and their tools and management, and how to incorporate data from a survey and run survey queries.
From there, Cohen explores model creation, explaining how to create and work with surfaces, how to manage alignments, how to share 3D data, and create assemblies and subassemblies, along with several other key design elements.
Additional chapters cover pipe and pressure pipe networks, and working with point clouds, parcels, sheets, and more.
"AutoCAD Civil 3D is a powerful civil engineering tool that creates smart relationships between design objects so design changes are automatically updated," Cohen explains.
"With this smart technology, everything from surfaces and alignments to corridors will update automatically based on their relationships with other objects."
"By the end of this course, you should have a working understanding of AutoCAD Civil 3D, and be able to start using the program in real-world engineering practice."
