How to Optimize the Earthworks for a Road Project

Adding earthwork optimization software to your design process allows you to deliver the lowest-cost design. It also allows you to design faster. In this introductory webinar, we will demonstrate how to optimize the earthworks (movement and embankment/excavation) for a road project.

This webinar will cover:

  • Types of projects suitable for earthwork optimization
  • Inputting constraints, testing feasibility
  • Working with ground types, & updating your costing model
  • Setting up an optimization and interpreting results.

Working with the 3D Window

The 3D window can be a really useful tool during the design process, but there are many different settings that could cause it to render poorly.   In this webinar, we will explore features and settings of the 3D window, including:

•    rendering multiple surfaces, 
•    draping images (and the settings associated with that),
•    setting up 3d options in Locations,
•    Importance/effect of report points,
•    fly by/drive-through, 
•    viewing a given direction from a certain point, and
•    merging terrains, etc.
