Free Training for The Autodesk Geotechnical Module

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

fenceWe are pleased to announce that, following the launch of The Autodesk Geotechnical Module last month by Autodesk, we have uploaded a number of free training videos to The Keynetix Knowledgebase to help our customers get to grips with this exciting new product.

The videos, written and presented by our own AutoCAD Civil 3D® Guru, Mr Gary Morin, cover how to import data into the application and use the borehole and strata managers.  Gary has also created two additional videos that show how to create geological lens and 3D Fence diagrams using standard AutoCAD Civil 3D functionality.

The videos can be found on The Ground Down section of the Keynetix Knowledgebase.[headline]More information on the AutoDesk® Geotechnical Module[/headline]

The Autodesk® Geotechnical Module has been developed and licenced to Autodesk by Keynetix, it has been designed to ease the task of creating and viewing geological and subsurface information.

Geotechnical design is like any other engineering practice, the designs need to be revised and refined. In many respects this is more the case with geotechnics as the engineer with limited information tries to interpret the data to best fit the site. To this end the tool has been designed to quickly display data in AutoCAD® Civil 3D®to allow the user to start modelling and interpreting the site data.The Geotechnical Module is designed to work with borehole locations and geology data, this functionality includes:

  • [list type=check_list]
    • Importing and connecting to geotechnical data, both AGS and CSV formats
    • Creating and managing Boreholes in both plan and model space
    • Creating and managing sub strata surfaces
    • Producing dynamic profiles and projecting log strips on to them
    • Geotechnical hatch and style management

    [/list]

 

The module is designed to show you the geotechnical data as-is, it does not interpret the data, however the surfaces that are created are a great aid and starting point in the interpretation, modelling and visualisation process.
