CAD Learning Labs

Irrigation designers interested in improving their efficiency and accuracy can take advantage of the CAD learning lab sessions. The CAD learning lab features both agriculture and landscape irrigation design techniques and best practices and allows participants to experience the speed, efficiency and accuracy offered by CAD-based irrigation software.

2017 CAD Learning Labs

Introduction to Irrigation With CAD

Beginner | Landscape | 2 CEUs
This class is complementary to the Landscape Irrigation Design course and will focus on how to apply what you learned about head layout and zoning through using CAD. You will learn how to select and place pipe and verify equipment, as well as how to use circuiting tools to make sure you properly zone your design.

Drip Design With CAD

Beginner | Landscape | 1 CEU
This class will cover how to incorporate drip irrigation into your design in CAD, and it is complementary to the Landscape Drip Irrigation Design and Management course. We will show how to add emitters and inline drip to your project and review the key elements required in making a functional drip design.

Customizing CAD Symbols to Your Office Standards

Intermediate/Advanced | Landscape | 1 CEU
Customizing your irrigation CAD blocks is important to ensure you end up with the look that you want. During this class we will go over irrigation and CAD block standards, how CAD functions with blocks, and where to make permanent changes so your design shows appropriately.

Agricultural Solid Set Sprinkler Irrigation System Design in CAD

Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced | Agriculture | 1 CEU
Agricultural sprinkler systems for orchards, vineyards and field crops require an accurate layout and design. By using CAD, irrigation designers can accurately complete sprinkler system layouts, pipe sizing, hydraulic reporting and materials lists over large areas quickly and confidently. Come see a current irrigation design CAD program complete a design and interface with programs like AutoCAD, GIS programs and others to accurately and professionally generate agricultural sprinkler irrigation systems.

Pipe Sizing & Hydraulic Troubleshooting in CAD

Intermediate/Advanced | Landscape | 2 CEUs
Understanding pipe sizing and hydraulics is a crucial part of your design. This class will go into what information is needed to successfully size an irrigation system using CAD. We will go over important troubleshooting steps if the system is unable to size and where to look and adjust to correct a failing hydraulic system.

Agricultural Drip Irrigation System Design in CAD

Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced | Agriculture | 1 CEU
Agricultural drip irrigation system designs can be complex. Accuracy in the system design is very important. By using CAD, irrigation designers can complete drip irrigation system layouts, pipe sizing, hydraulic reporting and materials lists accurately over large areas quickly and confidently. Come see a current irrigation design CAD program complete a design and interface with programs like AutoCAD, GIS programs, and other programs to accurately and professionally generate agricultural drip irrigation systems.
