Intro to RAM Structural System CONNECT - Hands-on Beginner - Allen Adams
The RAM Structural System is special purpose software for the structural analysis and design of buildings. In this session attendees will learn how to properly model a structure, specify design parameters and criteria to customize designs conforming to the engineer’s design philosophy, and perform designs for steel and concrete beams, columns, walls and foundations. Attendees will be introduced to each of the design modules, and obtain a working knowledge sufficient to produce designs for the common structural configurations. This course is recommended for Structural and Civil engineers involved in the design of buildings.

Advanced RAM Structural System CONNECT - HANDS-ON Beginner - Allen Adams
Increasingly, today’s buildings are becoming more elaborate, while the building code requirements are becoming more complex. In this session attendees will learn how to model more complicated geometries and how to utilize a range of products such as steel joists and cellular and castellated beams for roof and floor framing, and buckling restrained braces and SidePlate in lateral frames. Attendees will obtain a greater understanding of how engineering principles and requirements are implemented. An emphasis will be placed on obtaining designs that conform to the material specifications and building code requirements for seismic and wind design. This course is recommended for Structural and Civil engineers involved in the design of buildings. Attendance at Intro class or experience and basic familiarity with the RAM Structural System assumed.

AECOsim Building Designer CONNECT Edition - HANDS-ON Beginner - Mark Enos

BIM Quickstart A101: Modeling Walls, Doors and Windows

This hands-on course students will create a new project WorkSet with a project Floor and Grid System, and then learn the basic modeling techniques for modeling walls, doors and windows to create the exterior of a small commercial building.

AIA CES Approved 2 LU Hours

Intro to MicroStation CONNECT - Hands-on Beginner - Bentley Personnel
This is a great introduction to MicroStation for new users, getting a hands-on look at the new MicroStation CONNECT Edition. Students will learn ACCUDRAW, the most productive of all CAD tools, how to setup new design files, use the tools and settings, modification of elements, and referencing through a series of hands-on exercises.
ContextCapture CONNECT - Hands-on Beginner - Kurt Rasmussen

 

Learn how to take photographs from your digital camera or iPhone and convert those into an accurate 3Dmesh model.  The result can then be used to make a DTM or other model to be referenced in MicroStation, OpenRoads or other Bentley software.

OpenRoads Designer: Point Types - HANDS-ON Intermediate - Mark Ditko
Every InRoads user should know the 6 basic Point Types used during the construction of an InRoads DTM. If you don’t, and can’t name at least 4 of them right now, then don’t attend this session. This lecture session will be focusing on what has happened with these InRoads Point Types in OpenRoads Designer. If you are not on OpenRoads Designer yet, don’t worry, this lecture session will give you an opportunity to gain a deeper insight into what’s happening with Bentley’s next generation civil software relative to the new “DTM” construction. This session will mostly consist of lecture and discussion as well as randomly calling on attendees to test their InRoads SS2 knowledge. There won’t likely be any formal hands-on exercises, but there may be some sample files that can be inspected to reinforce the subject matter of the class. Ideal for an intermediate level user who has been working with surfaces using InRoads or Power InRoads V8i, SS2.

Projectwise CONNECT - Hands-on Beginner- Josh Lazear

This introductory class will give students an overview of what makes up ProjectWise, an understanding of ProjectWise concepts, how to use ProjectWise Explorer to access documents and best practices in structuring a ProjectWise Datasource. Students will get hands-on experience learning how to create custom views, perform quick searches, creating saved searches and how to manage documents. This class is intended for CAD managers considering ProjectWise or for anyone that would like to understand what ProjectWise is and how to use it. The session will end with Q&A with the instructor.

MicroStation CONNECT 3D - Hands-on Intermediate
This MicroStation class is for users that wish to develop an understanding of the 3D capabilities of MicroStation CONNECT. This class will give an introduction to navigating/working in a 3D design file, and creating/editing 3D curves, solids, and surfaces in MicroStation. In addition, users will be introduced to Dynamic Views to creating 2D drawings. Through a series of hands-on exercises, users will develop a solid understanding of the 3D capabilities of MicroStation CONNECT.

OpenRoads Designer: InRoads SS2 DTM vs OpenRoads Designer Terrain - HANDS-ON Intermediate - Mark Ditko
InRoads SS2 has its “DTM”, OpenRoads Designer has its “Terrain”. What’s that all about? What’s changed? Has anything stayed the same? Unfortunately it’s not business as usual once you make the move off of InRoads SS2. This session will be focusing on the new OpenRoads Designer terrain model and will compare and contrast it to the InRoads SS2 DTM. Beyond that you will learn what this new Terrain model is all about, and will likely find it both baffling and intriguing at the same time. The new civil world is at our doorstep, and unless you’re getting ready to retire soon, you’re going to eventually need to understand this stuff, so get prepared. There probably won’t be any formal hands-on exercises, but there will be some sample files that can be examined to highlight the material covered in the class. Ideal for intermediate level users who have been working with DTMs using InRoads or Power InRoads V8i, SS2.
