Licensed by Keynetix to Autodesk, the Geotechnical Module is a free add-on to AutoCAD Civil 3D. It is a cut down version of HoleBASE SI Extension and can connect to HoleBASE SI to give CAD and BIM teams instant access to centrally-held geotechnical data. It can also be used as a standalone product.
"A major improvement to the module means, for the first time, users can update existing borehole information. Boreholes can simply be removed and the updated data imported, which is automatically included in models and profiles," said Keynetix technical director Gary Morin.
"There are also a number of new features to allow users to customise drawings and profiles," Morin added. "Geological strips can be moved to avoid them overlapping when boreholes are close together; users can create their own geological legend keys and they can re-order strata, plus we have made a number of improvements to the profile generation tools."
The new version of the Geotechnical Module can be downloaded from users' Autodesk management console at manage.autodesk.com/cep/#products-services/updates. To subscribe to Keynetix's free Geotechnical Module training, visit: geotechnicalmoduletraining.keynetix.com.
