Autodesk Grading Optimization is an interactive tool that facilitates grading various land areas such as sites, road interchanges, and around structures. It consists of optimization algorithms that work toward surface smoothness while accommodating user imposed constraints. These design constraints include grading and drainage elements. The constraints are entered as global parameters and as individual grading element parameters.
Once optimization begins, the real-time problem solving can be observed. Using several visualization themes for the surface, or by watching the trends of the convergence plots, you can stop and change designs or let it run until a desired grading solution is found. If a solution is not possible, a best approximation is provided within your constraint requirements.
Grading Optimization is based on deterministic algorithms that will try to satisfy all of your design constraints on a surface.
Mass grading requires detailed models, balanced sites, and forward-thinking engineers and contractors. This session will look at a couple of mass grading sites and some best practices in creating, editing, and managing your models. From our model, we’ll extract actionable data for projects at the bid and construction stages. We’ll also look at best practices for machine control models and discuss some pitfalls to avoid.
A new extension for Civil 3D 2022 is Grading Optimization for Civil 3D. Grading Optimization uses new Grading objects provided to you in the Civil 3D tool palette.
