Civil 3D and Dynamo Clash Detections – Comparing All 3D Components

Leveraging Dynamo to perform clash detections within Civil 3D, without having the need for any additional software. Perfect routine for quickly identifying conflicts in your design between Utility Networks, Revit Models, Corridors, Structural Components and any additional 3D Geometry developed inside your Civil 3D Model.

Civil 3D and Dynamo – Create Points, Point Group, Surface from Surveyed Points

Here’s a great example of how we can leverage Dynamo within Civil 3D to Automate and Simplify our tasks, ultimately generating higher levels of efficiency and saving time! This example explains how to Convert a typical 3 step process into 1 routine, while we import point data into our current working C3D file, Group the points into a Point Group, and then create a surface from the point group. Enjoy!

Autodesk 3ds Max Animations Viewed in AR with Torch

If you’ve ever thought about animating Traffic Simulations, Construction Sequencing, or even Storm Events (to name a few), then you’ve come to the right place! In this video, I will demonstrate the process of leveraging 3ds Max to animate a traffic simulation to provide a fully immersive, animated, Augmented Reality environment with ease. After importing into Torch, we will be able to position our design model on a conference room table, or on your site, for a more thorough Design Review.

Importing InfraWorks Design Models into Torch

Quick and Easy Demonstration detailing the process of carrying your InfraWorks design models into Torch for Augmented Reality Viewing. Scan the QR Codes to view the sample from this demonstration, and fully immerse yourselves in the design!

Animation in Augmented Reality

Adding some simple animation to your scenes in Augmented Reality takes your designs to a whole new level! I see some Augmented Reality Traffic Simulations in my future! Be sure to Scan the QR Code with the Camera App on your Phone or Tablet to test out this example!

BPOLY vs LINEWORKSHRINKWRAP

Comparison between Civil 3D’s BPOLY and LINEWORKSHRINKWRAP commands. Both are super powerful commands! This demonstration will give you a better understanding of when to leverage each one!

Civil 3D – Smooth Out Those Contours!

Tired of Engineers asking for your contours to be smooth and pretty? Here’s a quick and simple way to manipulate the display of your contours, without having to go through the hassle of recreating and/or retriangulating the surface definition.

Geotechnical Module in Augmented Reality

Bringing Bore Hole Data to life in Augmented Reality, by leveraging Civil 3D’s Geotechnical Module, InfraWorks and Torch! Never thought “Boring” Data could be so cool! Each color within the Borings represents a different type of Soil!

InfraWorks Export to FBX

Quick and Easy Demonstration showing how to properly export your 3D Model from InfraWorks. Once exported, you can import into many different programs, such as 3ds Max, Unity, Lumion, TwinMotion, etc.

Fully Immersive Designs (CAD, BIM, CIM)

Jumping into your Design Models has never been made easier! Allow me to assist your company in providing a Fully Immersive Experience for you and your Clients!

Embedding QR Codes into your Rendered Videos allows your Audience to dive into the design with a quick scan of their phone, giving them an opportunity to truly visualize, from multiple viewpoints, what the end product will look like before it’s even constructed!
Just for fun…I call it “Unrealistic Panorama Rendering in the Shire”
2 Viewpoints sharing the same QR Code of our design model with different lighting effects applied. As long as you have Viewpoints Enabled when you pull it up on your tablet or phone, you can click on the Eye Icon and jump to the other location in your view!
