CAD FOR SITE ENGINEERS (2 DAYS)

2 DAY CAD COURSE:

  • Improve productivity
  • Latest software used
  • Small class sizes

This course is aimed at people who are confident using the total station and/or GNSS, have a working knowledge of 3D coordinate geometry and construction drawings and who have basic computer literacy.

Course Content

By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Set up a logical filing system
  • Import data from the total station
  • Tabulate data
  • Re-reduce raw data and re-create the co-ordinates of the points
  • Check the accuracy of the instrument set-up and control points based on measured data
  • Retrospectively attribute codes to points or recode points
  • Annotate levels
  • Set up code tables
  • Transform local coordinates into OS and vice versa
  • Create annotated sections
  • Import images
  • Select points from an electronic file and export them to a setting out schedule
  • Create a contoured plan
  • Compare volumes between subsequent surveys
  • Use least squares adjustment to analyse results including control point data
  • Retrospectively insert or edit break lines
  • Carry out visual checks on 3D models
  • Render slab levels and create a ‘heat map’ of as-built Vs design levels
  • Select layers to isolate the relevant information
  • Check and convert units
  • Import data into the total station including strings, polylines and design surfaces
  • Describe the potential technical and contractual pitfalls of working with electronic information as opposed to hard copy drawings
  • Create drawings and deliverables and present them correctly
