12d Model Basic Civil Design will equip you with the powerful techniques for designing roads using 12d Model.

Civil Design Basics – Day 2

Day 2 of a two-day course in the essential techniques for designing roads using 12d Model.

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 coursesCheck on upcoming courses at bottom of page.

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.

Course Summary – Day 2

  • Review the techniques covered in Day 1
  • Open an existing project, and review the design of the Reference Strings (road centrelines) for two roads.  Add plan transitions (spirals) to the road centrelines.
  • Load templates (cross section definitions) from a library, and review the cross sections.
  • Create an MTF (a cross section control file) load templates into the MTF, and generate the road design for both roads.
  • Use the commands in the MTF to create widening, superelevation and layout of a bus-bay.  Design a spoon drain for the bus-bay.
  • Design an overlay for one of the roads, and ensure that crossfall of the overlay matches the crossfall of the existing road.
  • Create kerb returns for the intersection of the two roads, and grade (create a vertical design) the kerb returns.  Use 12d Model to automatically generate the grading.
  • Review the process for creating Long Section and Cross Section drawings
  • Create a ‘Chain’ of the design operations.  This automates the design steps required when changes are required, and allows quick and effective redesign and drawing production.
