Course Content

In the course, we go through creating a new project and how to navigate around the workspace using the menus, toolbars, and views.

  • We demonstrate how to create data, import data from external files, and then create surfaces from that data which we then use as the basis for our road design.

  • For road design, we create reference strings for horizontal and vertical geometry and create our road strings and cross-sections using that reference string. We talk about how we can assess our design using each of the Plan, Section, and Perspective views and also how we design in consideration of underground utilities.

  • From there we calculate the earthwork quantities for the construction of our road, as well as discuss strategies for making our entire design process as efficient as possible, primarily with the use of Chains.

  • Once we’ve completed the design, we finish by creating our long sections, cross-sections, and plan view plots, and show how to combine all of these together using Multipage Plots to plot an entire set of plans at the click of a button.

  • As you step through the course, there’ll be a quiz after each topic which tests your understanding of what was covered in that session; they’re just there to keep you on the right track.

I’m really glad I took the course.

I found that training to be really useful. I learnt lots of little tips and tricks, even though I’ve been using 12d for about 7 years. The design stuff was great. Easy to follow and very clear.
