Civil Design Basics 1 – Fundamentals

$495.00 inc GST

Day 1 of a two-day course in the use of 12d Model for road and intersection design.
This is delivered face to face on the 8th of February 2022

Participants will learn the process for creating road designs in 12d Model, including basic intersection design, adding superelevation and widening, creating bus bays and the like.

They will become familiar with the techniques for creating long and cross sections drawings, and the creation of a design Chain to allow for quick engineering changes and updating of the DE / BIM model.

Civil Design Basics – Fundamentals

Participants will learn the process for creating road designs in 12d Model, including basic intersection design, adding superelevation and widening, creating bus bays and the like.
They will become familiar with the techniques for creating long and cross sections drawings, and ‘Chaining’ design operations together so that designs and drawings can quickly be revised.

Prerequisites: ‘Introduction to 12d Model’ or a good working knowledge of 12d Model.
By booking a course, you affirm that you meet the requirements for 12d Model training courses.

This one day course will be presented face to face at North Sydney on the 8th of February.

Course Summary

  • Load survey data and create a triangulation of the existing surface.
  • Create the road centreline (reference string or control line) for a road.  Exercises will cover accurately locating both horizontal and vertical geometry.
  • Create the cross section definition for the road (called a template) and use this to complete the simple road design.
  • Review road cross sections at different chainages, and view the road in a 3d perspective view.  Drive along your road.
  • Edit the road centreline, and update the design.  Note the changes to cut and fill volumes.
  • Generate Plan, Longsection and Cross Section drawings ready for plotting or export to CAD.

Throughout the course you will be given exercises to practice the skills that you have learnt, and reinforce the design techniques.
