Urbano PRO/Ultimate: Network design from GIS to BIM

Urbano 11 announcement

#urbanosoftware #civilengineeringdesign #caddesign #gis #bim

Workflow examples for using GIS data for CAD design and export to BIM formats. The examples focus on sewage design, but the basic workflow for water, gas and other pipe networks is similar.

The presented workflows include:

  1. Data import from a database and export to Autodesk Civil 3D
    Creating a PostgreSQL database import configuration, adding to the pipe network with multiple design functions, designing long sections and pipe inverts, exporting the complete network to the database, converting the complete network to Autodesk Civil 3D
  2. Working with parcels and export to Autodesk Infraworks
    Creating parcels from GIS data, parcel editing and analysis, adding parcel data to long sections, exporting terrain, pipe network and parcels to LandXML, visualization with Infraworks
  3. Designing trenches and export to Autodesk Navisworks
    Setting trenches, drawing cross sections, calculating excavation volumes, changing pipe network style to 3D, creating a 3D trench, performing trench grading, adding custom user data, exporting terrain, pipe network and trenches to Navisworks, visualization with Navisworks, plotting long sections, connecting long sections pdf files to Navisworks elements with Urbano Navisworks tools

The presentation lasts approximately 60 minutes.
