Webinars

Infrastructure Tuesday:
ArcGIS to Civil 3D, InfraWorks, & Revit

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 @ 11:00 AM - 11:45 AM PDT

Join James Lord (StarLord James) and Ron Couillard to learn what GIS is, where you can get it (for free and for a cost), and how you can create a map to share/access it inside of InfraWorks, Civil 3D, and even Revit. Use Civil 3D to import utility GIS data and convert it to a Civil 3D Pipe Network.

Learning objectives

• What GIS data is and how to utilize it
• Access this data inside Civil 3D, InfraWorks and Revit
• Where to find free and paid GIS data

About the presenter

James Lord (StarLord James) began working with AutoCAD in 1997 before specializing in civil infrastructure in 2003. Prior to joining U.S. CAD, Mr. Lord served in several BIM Manager and Specialist roles at KPFF, where he designed and created 3D models that were used in the construction of commercial, residential, government, and roadway projects. He was also responsible for pioneering, testing, evaluating, and deploying CAD standards and BIM modeling practices for his entire team, as well as providing training and mentoring. Mr. Lord’s other BIM Management duties included software management and customization, development of BIM standards and workflows, supervision and maintenance of software templates, technology evaluation and budgeting, and hardware and network support for BIM production. Mr. Lord also leverages his industry and software expertise to host “Infrastructure Universe”, a monthly series dedicated to the providing updates, news, new workflows, tips & tricks, and anything else related to the Civil Engineering Universe.

Ron Couillard has over 20 years’ experience in Civil CAD production for commercial, military, and airport projects as a Designer and Cad Manager. He provides technical expertise and training, including software installations and product customization in the support of AutoCAD Civil 3D, Infraworks 360, AutoCAD Map 3D, AutoCAD, and other Autodesk solutions. Additionally, Ron is an Implementation Certified Expert in both Civil 3D and Map 3D and is also a Certified Professional in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016. Ron currently works as a Senior Technical Specialist with U.S. CAD.

Infrastructure Tuesday:
Under Pressure!: Pressure Pipe Tips in Civil 3D

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6 @ 11:00 AM - 11:45 AM PDT

Join Doug Benoit to look at and discuss what is cool, what works well, and what doesn’t when it comes to the pressure pipe tools in Civil 3D. Specifically, we will look at different ways of creating pressure networks and then placing those networks into your profile view. We will look at setting the design bury depth of the pressure pipe in profile. Finally, we will discuss adding a vertical offset to a network to go around other piping.

Learning objectives

• What GIS data is and how to utilize it
• Access this data inside Civil 3D, InfraWorks and Revit
• Where to find free and paid GIS data

About the presenter

Doug Benoit brings over 25 years of civil engineering experience to the technical team at U.S. CAD. His previous experience includes 13 years gathering real-world experience as a design/project engineer at a consulting firm in St. Paul, Minn. Mr. Benoit’s current responsibilities include training, mentoring, content creation, writing technical guides and technical support.
