New AutoCAD Civils 3D Geotechnical Module boosts usability

Autodesk’s Geotechnical Module for AutoCAD Civils 3D 2017 makes it even easier to integrate and visualise geotechnical data within AutoCAD and enables improved collaboration between project teams working with BIM

Aug 25, 2016 -- The module, developed for Autodesk by AEC Geotechnical Industry Partner Keynetix, has been completely updated for the 2017 version of AutoCAD Civils 3D. Free to download to existing users, it features a number of enhancements to improve usability.

“The module allows data to be viewed more rapidly, creating geotechnical sections in seconds, with standard Autodesk Civils 3D commands used to edit and manipulate geological surfaces,” explained Keynetix Technical Director Gary Morin. “It will also link to Keynetix geotechnical data management software HoleBASE SI, enabling teams to work on, and share, geotechnical data and drawings."

“The update has a number of productivity improvements, for example, it now allows borehole locations to be selected for manipulation using the drawing filter; strata are now colour coded, so they can be identified more easily, and users only have to check one box to create the top and bottom strata surfaces.”

Production drawings were now also easier to manage, Morin said. “Annotative text to borehole plans and log strips has been mapped to AutoCAD styles and is automatically adjusted to match the drawing scales.”

Autodesk Geotechnical Module Training

Keynetix is offering free online training to support the launch of the updated Autodesk Geotechnical Module, covering the essentials of the software through short videos, demo datasets, webinars and technical papers.

“The course is an excellent way for users to learn how to get the most out of the updated module,” Morin said. “It is presented in ‘bite-size chunks’ that can be viewed over a few weeks. We can also tailor training for more advanced users.”

The online course can be accessed for free by registering at http://geotechnicalmoduletraining.keynetix.com/
