Watch the 12d Innovation Awards Entry 2012 highlights video

By on 31 October, 2012
With over 450 attendees at the 12d Model International User Conference 2012, it seemed like the perfect occasion to showcase the inaugural 12d International Innovation Awards ceremony. 
The projects that were submitted were all of a high standard, from organisations both large and small and from a wide array of civil engineering and surveying applications.

Project types varied from roads, rail, GIS and field applications to dynamic drainage and flood modelling. Entries were by no means limited!

A few great examples are that of winner, Samuel Cech, of New Zealand surveying and planning consulting firm Eliot Sinclair. 

Mr Cech developed innovative macros within 12d Model for precise level monitoring surveys of large networks of vertical monitoring marks. 

Macros were also developed to create graphically pleasing tables, improve computer assisted design operations, and to add secondary pipes to a network pipe. 

Mr Cech also worked in a SCIRT project to analyse 2010/2011 light detection and ranging (LiDAR) survey data together with LiDAR data from 2003. This was in light of earthquake events in New Zealand during 2010/2011.

Another design Mr Cech completed was for the Porters ski field in New Zealand, with a model showing the effects of the sun shadow of a new house on an adjacent property. 

Cech also developed a system that allowed for importing and exporting data from Trimble controllers used for surveying, as well as HTML format toolbars that could be printed out or sent to Microsoft Excel for further manipulation.

Below is a teaser video highlighting some of the innovations that were submitted. 

Over the coming months, 12d Solutions Pty Ltd will be releasing highlight videos from the conference as well as project innovations.
