Sitework, Materials & Highway

Tuesday - Basic earthwork takeoff from PDF

Learn basic takeoff of original ground and proposed design from plan sheet Pdfs. Topics include data entry from vector and raster Pdf, data editing, quantity analysis, formatting reports and the geo-referencing of takeoff data for viewing on Google Earth, and for navigation and calculations using mobile apps on site.

Wednesday - Advanced earthwork takeoff from CAD files

Improve precision and speed up the takeoff process using layered Pdfs and CAD files. Topics include selecting and transferring CAD data, techniques for assigning elevations, and the advanced use of templates. Other topics include strata borings, multiple surfaces, over-excavation, autopad, progress topos, staging data, state plane coordinates, map projections, introduction to GPS modeling, interpretation of drone data, and supporting the foreman’s use of mobile apps on site.

Thursday - Materials, underground and highway takeoff

Learn to create a structures list and takeoff materials and underground quantities from Pdf images, CAD data, and linework imported from AGTEK earthwork files. For highway, you will learn basic cross section and plan view takeoff of earthwork from Pdf and LandXML files, to create a mass diagram analysis and 3D models of original and proposed design.

Prerequisites: Students should have prior plan-reading experience and basic computer skills.

SmartDirt Mobile App

Foreman's new friend
SmartDirt - Dirt Power Tools

SmartDirt extends what once happened only in the office, to the foreman's iPhone, Android or tablet on site. He can figure cut-fill quantities on the fly for whatever he is trying to get done! Then document with photos, notes and tracks he can easily share with whoever needs to know.

SmartDirt shows cut-fill and elevation wherever you're standing, based upon your takeoff, latest drone topo, or the GPS model guiding your machines. SmartDirt communicates grade and inspects models with 3D visualizations that move with you to give you, your foreman, project manager, equipment operators or client the closest thing to virtual reality without wearing funny glasses.

Okay to print fewer cut-fill maps! AGTEK's facility license puts SmartDirt capability into the hands of everyone who needs it-on or off the site.
