Engineering is a science that includes many disciplines, like surveying, structural, building and design

Where is Bentley going with the Civil area

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. So this topic is too pretentious, I just want to have a reflection on what I can understand. I had started trying to talk about Geopak, but right now I just get PowerCivil, it saves me a lot, I only have to test […]

TopoCAD, more than Topo, more than CAD

TopoCAD is a basic but comprehensive solution for surveying, CAD drawing and engineering design, although it does more than that in a development that has taken more than 15 years after his birth in Sweden. Now it is all over the world in 12 languages and 70 countries but does not seem to have achieved […]

Arivte, a good tool for Civil engineers

Arivte.com is a community with much traffic that comes from Peru but its content has general interest in different civil engineering areas. It’s a little complicated to access issues, because of its hierarchical format with forum and subforums which affects in content’s dispersion; but once registered and when the thread is found, the goal is […]

PhotoModeler, measuring and modeling the real world

PhotoModeler is an application of EOS System, created with the LeadTools SDK, the best I’ve seen, you can create 3D objects and scenes from photographs with the technique called photo modeling. Before I spoke of a mdl that works with Microstation, but in this case we are talking of a complete program that apart from […]

6 minutes of trust for ConstrucGeek

I recommend taking a moment to learn about this blog, which is now coming to a year of operation. I am referring to ConstrucGeek, the six minutes you’re expecting to devote reading a new egeomate you should invest in this blog. There are only two possibilities: that you realize CAD issues associated with engineering isn’t […]

Building with wood, American style

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post The second day was equally interesting; we’ve seen at least four models of construction: The prefabricated home, other of classic design but built on the site, then one with a special design and finally a reinforced concrete walls. In this case I want […]

Civil 3D, road design, Lesson 2

In the previous post we saw how to import points, now we’ll see how to filter them to get a better sense of what we have. The points that we have, have the following attributes: FENCE, SLIDING, GAP Then the rest is nothing, so we assume that it is a natural terrain and there is […]

Engineering projects with AutoCAD Civil 3D

It’s one of the most complete Spanish resources I’ve seen on Civil 3D; I’ve realized this through the Cartesia Forum and I think that, with AUGI’s resources as a complement, is almost enough to learn Civil 3D. It has been promoted by ApliCAD, who built the entire document with the contribution of Neus Ros (Geodesy […]
