The Design Summit opened with several session of advanced training. These sessions were intensive 3 hrs of training on Landmark, Architect and Site Modelling. I wish I had been able to enjoy the Architect Session – it was focussed on layers, levels and stories, something I have done a few times on this site. It would have been been good to see another point of view.
My training was focused on Site Modeling. This is always a good topic and a topic that often causes confusion. I tried to go slow with this training so that the attendees took in the basics fully. We had enough time for the attendees to work through the topics as I presented them.
This is a big topic – there is so much to cover. I think it is important to make sure that users understand the basics. So we started with the basics and worked though those, step-by-step.
These are the topics we covered:
Making a Site Model
- Importing Information
- Import a Survey Drawing as 2D Information
- Import an Image
- Import a Survey Drawing a 3D Information
- Creating 3D Information
- Creating the Site Model
- Pads and Grade Limits
- Cut and Fill Calculations
- Stake Object
- 3D Polylines
- Texture Bed
