Autodesk Ecosystem: Incorporating the Various Autodesk Offerings within a Project

Instructor: Kevin Closson ACI, CTT 

Time: 1:15pm to 5:15pm

Workshop Description: With ever-growing datasets and the wide variety of software offerings within Autodesk’s collections, one often asks themselves, “Where do I start?” Look no further… This session will focus on the current pros and cons associated with large datasets (e.g. LiDAR, Point Clouds) while providing solutions and/or workarounds for them in their current working state. Furthermore, we will expand our conversation by exploring Autodesk’s latest entry, InfraWorks, as it relates to today’s most common practices as well as the associated “peripheral” tools that streamline the laborious process of data aggregation. This session will highlight the following topics listed below: 

  • Compiling a Base Map (Model Builder)
  • Autodesk Raster Design (Clean-up)
  • Autodesk Recap Overview
  • Scan Data (Surface accuracy and Precision)
  • InfraWorks and Civil 3D Interoperability
