If you are overwhelmed trying to pick your classes for Autodesk University 2010, take a deep breath. I am here to help.
For those of us who are interested in civil engineering and related industries, most of your classes will be clustered under these three tracks.
A somewhat logical sequence of classes that builds from planning, through conceptual and preliminary design, surveying, detailed design, documentation, data management and more. We worked hard to make sure the instructors have a good knowledge “under the hood” of each topic. You will get practical information on using the tools, real workflow scenarios and details about how each piece of the program works.
For example, Deep Dive into Corridor Modeling features Chakri Gavini and Nick Zeeben as instructors. It’s a rare chance to tap into these two Manchester based corridor minds.
This is the main track for Civil 3D, but also features civil related classes on Landxplorer, Map 3D, Topobase, Navisworks, Autodesk Storm and Sanitary Analysis and more.
You’ll want to look for planning, water and utility classes in this area, such as CV223-4 Using Autodesk® Storm and Sanitary Analysis on Large Stormwater Projects with Tim Olson and UT220-1 Sewer Master Planning with AutoCAD® Map 3D and Autodesk® Storm and Sanitary Analysis Extension with Dan Leighton.
Some of the tracks to look under for Civil Interest classes:
Collaboration and Data Management: Vault, Vault Collaboration
Construction and Real Estate: Navisworks, Buzzsaw, more
Customization and Programming: Civil 3D API
Design Leadership : Dan Philbrick and Dave Simeone
Design Visualization: Civil Visualization (Dynamite VSP)
Structural Design and Engineering: Civil Bridge Extension
