Civil Structures 2015

Using these  Bridge Modeling Autodesk® Revit® Extensions, you can generate bridges based on user-defined criteria. Users can define basic parameters of the geometry of a bridge including: a road profile, a deck, abutments, piers and railings. The road profile may also be imported from a LandXML format file. The bridge is generated based on user-defined families that are provided with these Revit Extensions.

Best Practices for Worksharing in Revit

General Considerations Decisions made when sharing a project and setting up its Worksets can have long-lasting effects on the project team. AutoCAD users will recognize some of these implications from setting up xref structures for projects. In general, when setting up Worksets you should take several considerations into account: 1. Project size 2. Team size 3. Team member roles 4. Default Workset visibility Establishing practical policies on how all team members access and create new Worksets in the project will maintain performance for existing users and ease the process of introducing new team members to the project.
Project size: The size of your building may affect the way you decide to segment the Worksets for your team. Unlike AutoCAD xrefs, you don’t need to make separate Worksets for each floor of the building. You will want to separate the project into Worksets that allow team members to work without interfering with each other. In a multistory structure you may want to creat…

Civil 3D 2015 - ProSoft PowerTools for Civil 3D

I wrote an article recently for AUGI on the ProSoft PowerTools.  Some info is below on some of the new 2015 features, the full article is here:

New for Civil 3D 2015!! There are several new items new for the first rollout of the 2015 version.  One I chose to highlight here is the grading tools.
Grading tools enables you to create 3D projection polylines from any polyline or feature line. Grading is defined with a set of grading criteria, which are applied to a footprint. The following grading criteria are supported:
oOffset/Slope oOffset/Relative elevation oSlope/Relative elevation oSlope/Surface oDrape oOffset/Drape/Elevation
Grading object consist of several 3D polylines each one representing grading criteria. Grading definition can be saved and applied on other footprints. Several grading objects can be applied on a single polyline or feature line.
Grading tools enables you to verify different designs by changing grading criteria or footprint. You…
