Autodesk University 2019 Free Online Classes

Autodesk University in Las Vegas starts next week, November 18-21. AU connects thousands of professionals from construction, manufacturing, architecture, engineering, and media creation. Whether you're a CAD manager, BIM manager, architect, an MEP and fabrication professional or a software developer—from civil infrastructure to manufacturing and beyond—join your colleagues for 4 days of learning, networking, and knowledge sharing.

BIM360 Collaboration for Civil 3D Assigned Services

Users who have access to BIM360 Design and are assigned to a Project who wish to use Collaboration for Civil 3D will need to have the service entitlement assigned to them by the Contract Manager/Administrator or Software Coordinator/Secondary Admin.  It is unassigned by default.

You will receive the following, or similar, if the service has not been assigned while attempting to use the collaboration service for Civil 3D:

Autodesk Collaboration for Civil 3D 2020.2 Update!

The Autodesk Civil 3D 2020.2 Update has just been released and includes the Autodesk Collaboration for Civil 3D.

Subscribers to BIM 360 Design will receive an entitlement to Autodesk Collaboration for Civil 3D, which allows project teams to collaborate on Civil 3D data shortcut projects in BIM 360.

Upload Civil Objects to ArcGIS Online with the Autodesk Connector in Civil 3D 2020.1

Seiler Design Solutions presents the fourth in a series of videos featuring the Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS Online and how the data can be used in Autodesk Products.

In this video, we will show you how you can connect to and upload data from Civil 3D to ArcGIS Online, copying standard Civil 3D object properties to the online GIS layers. This data can be used by GIS Professionals in their maps and analyses and can be accessed by other design professionals for future design work.

 

Pipe Network Objects using the Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS in Civil 3D 2020.1

In this video, Seiler Design Solutions presents the third in a series of videos featuring the Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS Online and how the data can be used in Autodesk Products.

In this video, we will show you how you can create gravity pipe network Civil 3D data objects in Civil 3D 2020.1. We will connect to ArcGIS Online data that contain both pipe and structure layers with attributes we can map to standard Civil 3D pipe network attributes. We can fill in any missing data with default values allowing us to get a start in creating pipe networks for analysis or design.

Export Civil 3D Objects to Google Earth

The need to share information in other formats is a necessity to our normal design workflows. In this video, Seiler Design Solutions will show you how to export Civil 3D objects to a Google Earth .KMZ or .KML file and view them in Google Earth.

This is applicable to civil engineers, planners, surveyors and designers fo visualizing Civil 3D drawings in Google Earth for sharing with others, visualization or other planning purposes.

 

Using Surface Snapshots in Civil 3D

At one time or another you may have opened a Civil 3D drawing sent to you and noticed, while viewing details of a surface in the Prospector tab of the Toolspace, what looks like a little camera icon next to the Definition section.  What does that little icon mean?

That icon stands for a surface snapshot, and in this article, I hope to help explain what a surface snapshot is and how it is used.

According to the Autodesk Civil 3D Help file:

Creating a subassembly from a polyline in Autodesk Civil 3D

Corridor modeling is a powerful tool for creating simple or complex road and other linear 3D design models.  One key to its versatility is the use of custom subassembly parts to model non-standard components of the corridor.

In the video below, Seiler Design Solutions will show you how to create a simple corridor subassembly from a polyline and add codes to the various points, links and shapes that get created.

AutoCAD Web App

As part of your AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, and AEC Collection subscriptions, you get access to the AutoCAD Web App.

Edit, create, and view CAD drawings in a web browser on any computer.
