3D Drafting, Solids Modeling and Advanced concepts using MicroStation or OpenRoads
This course teaches the basics of 3D drafting and solids modeling using either the MicroStation or OpenRoads software applications. Both OpenRoads and MicroStation users can take this class since all the MicroStation functionality is built into OpenRoads. This course goes beyond the basics of 2D drafting by exploring 3D concepts needed for working on civil-related projects including 3D solids modeling to create inlets, headwalls, wingwalls, etc. Other concepts include creating 3D parametric cells, creating single sheets (plan and typical sections), creating special auxiliary sheets, working with raster images like aerial photos and topo maps and using Bing Maps for background images. Students interested in learning how to model a corridor project in 3D should take OpenRoads I.

MicroStation CONNECT I training course or a basic working knowledge of MicroStation CONNECT.
This course teaches the basics of 2D MicroStation drafting using example highway projects. Learn how to draw civil engineering details using Placement, Modify, Manipulation and Grouping tools with AccuDraw. Also work with Cells and References. The course teaches the workflow for creating sheets including Drawing Models and Sheet Models. Learn how to annotate in the Drawing Model and work with the Sheet Models in the Sheet Index, including how to plot the sheets. This course is a prerequisite to OpenRoads I.More Information
