XPSite3D (UK) | Online Training

Training Course

A course designed to help you get the most out of XPSite3D.

Who will benefit?

Anyone designing or checking road layouts who wants to understand the process of road design as well as an optimised approach to completing designs. No previous experience of road design or the XPSite3D software is required for this introductory course.

What will they learn?

Participants will learn the basics of road design using the fastest and most efficient methods. Step by step guidance, including presentations, discussion and hands-on use of the software will take attendees through the design of road systems to serve typical applications, such as housing estates or industrial or retail parks. The interaction with the design of associated drainage systems is a key feature of the training.

Online learning

The courses will be conducted using GoToTraining software, which allows two way communication between the instructor and the class.

To participate you will need two screens, one to run the software and the other to watch the presenter or their screen. A headset with microphone would also be very useful.

You will operate the software using a ‘virtual’ computer which we will provide and which you can access from your computer, whether from home or in the office. We will provide you with login details a day or so before the course starts. This virtual machine includes the software and data required to run the course. In other words, there is no need for you to install the software on your computer, to participate in the training.

Training notes will be posted to you in advance of the training.

Class sizes will be strictly limited as we understand the challenges associated with remote learning.

Key Topics

  • Import of background data, such as AutoCAD layers
  • Creation of roads including bends, kerbs and footpaths.
