CAD Import & Export for Modeling Complex Structures





Purpose of the Webinar (Why CAD to CAD)
Many engineers find the generation of a model a complicated or tedious task. For this reason, we have created this session to explain how easily and fast you can model a bridge bringing most of the information from an everyday tool like AutoCAD or MicroStation.

In this session we will present a general overview of what is modeling, its application and the process to perform it. We will cover step-by-step process of modeling using everyday tools such as CAD to create a simple model of a bridge. The step-by-step process will be explained. The program offers all the tools needed to perform the bridge modeling and analysis. Attendees will be familiarized with the midas Civil program and will learn about its advantages. The main objectives of this session is to learn how an easy tool like midas Civil can save us time and money when modeling and analyzing a bridge.
