Bus Bays and Parking Bays – Webcast

In this live webcast, we discuss the different methods for designing bus bays and parking bays, from editing cross sections through to using the Knuckle tool and independent string control.

We cover four different approaches to designing bus/parking bays and explain when to use each method, based on the geometry and desired outcomes.

We also show you how to plot sections of the created model.

Introduction to Threads – Webcast

In case you missed our latest webcast on Threads, you can check it out below. Threads is a soon to be released command in Civil Site Design that allows users to form and process a computational workflow. Threads are a powerful addition to the software and give the designer a lot more control in regards to how updates happen and it what order.

Tunnel Design

Civil Site Design can be used for tunnel design. In this example we created a tunnel in two sections. First we created the road entrances and tunnel sections (not including the walls and roof, giving us the drive into the underground. Then we copied the alignment and made a top string – the elevations were easily matched by using the String copy tools via the Vertical Grading Editor. We attached the roof and wall section to this string. Finally, we used Grading strings to provide the entrance and exit walls. Then you put it all together in Model Viewer!

If tunnel design is of interest to you, then please let us know.
