Webinar Recording - Using GIS data in your engineering design with Civil 3D and Map 3D

Seiler Design Solutions recently hosted a webinar on "Using GIS data in your engineering designs with Civil 3D and Map 3D".  Thank you to all those who attended. We hope that you gained some valuable information you can use in your engineering desing workflows.

If you missed out on our webinar, you can view a recording of it below. 

In this webinar, Seiler Design Solutions demonstrates a few common ways in which GIS data can be utilized in your engineering designs.

Modifying Civil 3D Pipe Labels with Expressions

Seiler Design Solutions presents how to use expressions to modify a label style for pipe labels in Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D.

In this demonstration, we will modify the reported pipe length to take into account the curvature of the inside wall of a circular manhole to show the true length needed to fully penetrate this wall with the pipe.

Watch this video for a demonstration on how to use this feature.


Using Style Rules in Autodesk Infraworks

Seiler Design Solutions presents how to utilize the power of Style Rules, in Autodesk Infraworks, to utilize standard or custom object properties and the expression editor to stylize your sourced or created data automatically.

Watch this video for a demonstration on how to use this feature.



Using a survey database settings file in Civil 3D

Seiler Design Solutions presents how to utilize a survey database settings file in Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D to standardize your settings every time you start a new survey database.

Watch this video for a demonstration on how to use this feature.

Shared Reference Point Add-In for Civil 3D and Revit

In the following linked video, I demonstrate the Shared Reference Coordinate Extension from Autodesk to Reference a Civil 3D drawing coordinates back to my Revit model.

The purpose behind the Shared Reference Coordinate extension is to allow the export and import of the models from Revit to match the coordinates of a Civil 3D drawing without having to manually move and rotate the objects relative to each other.

Keeping your AutoCAD Drawings Clean

It is a common scenario:

It is 3:00 on a Friday afternoon, submittal day for a project you and your firm has been working on for the last few weeks.  You are making last minute changes to ensure delivering a quality product, but your drawings are slow to open and sluggish to respond.  Your plots are taking far too long to complete and you're pushing the limits for time as they need to be checked, signed and sealed. Why is this taking so long?
