Lee on 12d View 14, (mainly) for 12d Modellers

I caught up with our co-founder and Managing Director, Dr Lee Gregory, earlier this week to discuss 12d View – a free 12d Model project viewer which can look at all types of 12d Model projects. Lee showed us how to get started, and discussed how 12d View can also view 12d Model projects with shares. 12d … Continue reading Lee on 12d View 14, (mainly) for 12d Modellers



Trimesh Objects for Sub-Surface Utilities

I caught up with Peter Taynton of 12d Queensland to chat about trimesh objects for sub-surface utilities. A variety of shape definitions is shipped with 12d Model software. These can be applied to form trimesh features such as landscape and construction fences, safety barriers, wire ropes, guard rails, bridge profiles, road profiles, retaining walls, and … Continue reading Trimesh Objects for Sub-Surface Utilities



Sub-Surface Engineering and 12d Model

I caught up with Graham Wirth yesterday to chat about sub-surface engineering and 12d Model. Graham’s Training Webinar presentation was based on recent talks he’s been asked by various bodies to deliver on the role of engineering surveyors in Subsurface Utility Information (SUI). The presentation explored the current issues faced by surveyors, and innovative solutions to manage/provide … Continue reading Sub-Surface Engineering and 12d Model



Safety Barriers

I caught up with Peter Taynton of 12d Queensland to chat about Safety Barriers and 12d Model. There are many different types of safety barriers in existence, and 12d tries very hard to stay on top of these and include as many different designs as possible in the software. Peter is one of our foremost … Continue reading Safety Barriers



On The Rails with 12d

12d Model software’s vast suite of modules includes 12d Track, which was specifically designed for the survey, design and construction of light, heavy and high-speed rail projects. 12d Track allows users to calculate the centre of a track of surveyed rails, get a ‘Line of Best Fit’ to develop and alignment, calculate and plot slews, … Continue reading On The Rails with 12d



12d View

12d View allows 12d Model customers and non-12d Model customers to view 12d Model projects and aggregate other industry data in a single 3D platform. 12d View is great for engineers, staff onsite who want to view civil data in 3D or anyone who doesn’t have access to a full 12d Model licence and wants … Continue reading 12d View



Trimesh BIM Objects

I caught up with Peter Taynton of 12d Queensland for Episode 1 in a new webinar series! This first session focussed on the object types shipped with 12d. There was a generalised discussion on how the objects were created, along with some editing: • File structure • Vertex objects • Segment objects There was also … Continue reading Trimesh BIM Objects



Civil BIM Delivery on the M1/M3/Gateway Merge (Pacific Motorway)

Watch a presentation given by Peter Ryan (Jacobs, Technical Director, Digital Engineering) at our sold-out 2018 12d Technical Forum. Learn about the challenges, workflows and benefits of designing the M1/M3/Gateway project under Civil BIM, and how 12d Model and 12d Synergy enabled this. What is the M1/M3/Gateway Merge? This is a BIM project being led by … Continue reading Civil BIM Delivery on the M1/M3/Gateway Merge (Pacific Motorway)



BIM Setout Using 12d Field

Subtitle: Digital Transformation in the Civil Infrastructure Industry As data managers, Surveyors are faced with many challenges, and are responsible for ever-increasing spatial and metadata information sets. Much of this data is of a basic xyz nature, without attributes or QA information. Presented by 12d Field Product Sales Manager Graham Wirth, this presentation is derived … Continue reading BIM Setout Using 12d Field



ESO on ICC

When Frenchs Forest-based surveying firm ESO Surveyors won the contract to perform the quantity surveying on Sydney’s new International Convention Centre (ICC), they jumped at the chance. They had previously made the transition into buildings, and the challenge of such an interesting space appealed. The project was completed in conjunction with Robert Bird Group (for … Continue reading ESO on ICC
