Joint marketing agreement

12d UK Ltd. and FORUM 8 have reached a joint marketing agreement (April. 20, 2010)
  • FORUM 8 is aiming for clollaborative marketing in Europe after the development of UC-win/Road for 12D Model.
    FORUM 8 is aiming to provide its state of the art Virtual Reality technology to 12d customers, while, in turn, provide 12d's modeling and designing technology to UC-win/Road customers.

Base product‐DTM Builder

The 12d Model base product contains all the options necessary to produce a digital terrain model (DTM or TIN), including fast triangulation, contouring and sectioning routines.
The 12d Model base product was written from the ground up for the civil and surveying market. Work flow follows traditional engineering ideas.
The base includes the string types 2d, 3d, 4d, interface, pipe, text, alignment and super to allow accurate civil engineering and survey modeling.

Volumetrics, Tin Analysis & Earthworks

This module is used for calculating earthworks volumes within a user defined polygon. Volumes can be calculated between a triangulated model and a fixed height or between two triangulated models. Reports of cut and fill areas and volumes are given. on a section by section basis. Then, depth volumes can be colour coded for validation and plots.
using the end area method, a height range basis by
The triangulation analysis module has options to calculate surface area, depth contours (isopachs), the intersection of triangulations.Land use studies, landscaping and other civil design tasks can benefit from this comprehensive suite of triangulation analysis options.

Detailed Alignment design

The module carries out full range civil design work. It allows to design from basic roads to multi lane highways with major intersections and exits. The Detailed Alignment Design module provides design capability and string modifier operations to allow interactive design of the most complex civil situations.

Module functions
  • Modifying design cross-fall between chainages
  • Modifying road width between chainages
  • Modifying string height between chainages
  • Projecting the cross-fall between two existing strings
  • Widening out to an existing string
  • Curb return function
  • Creating cross sections at user specified chainages
  • Modifying the height and/or offset of the hinge string

(1) Data link from UC-win/Road to 12d Model

  • Link of terrain data

    Terrain data of UC-win/Road can be converted and exported to Tin file of 12d Ascii File Format.

    Link of road data

    Data is divided into horizontal alignment data, vertical cross section data and cross section data. In 12d Model, horizontal alignment data and vertical cross section data are regarded as input data, while cross section data is regarded as result data. Therefore, horizontal alignment data and the cross section data is converted and exported to 12d Model. In addition, users can define the conversion of the the UC-win/Road 12d to the Alignment of the Super Alignment of the Ascii File Format.

(2) 12d Data link from 12d Model to UC-win/Road

  • Link of terrain data
    12d Model regards terrain data as TIN data structure and the range of the terrain is not limited. UC-win/Road regards terrain data as grid data structure. The size of the cell changes according to the size of the range of the terrain. To express more detailed terrain data, UC-win/Road can generate terrain patch. In addition, TIN model of 12d Model terrain can be converted to UC-win/Road terrain data or terrain patch data.

    Link of road data
    There are two ways: Alignment and Super Alignment in 12d. Users can define the Alignment or the Super Alignment when converting the road data.
