Knowledge Base Training Accreditation

 
 

Knowledge Base has recently had its training accreditation renewed to full accreditation with the ISETT SETA. The renewal was based on

the quality of our industry relevant Civil Designer and AllyCAD Training Programmes. All training courses are NQF aligned which means that companies can continue to claim back money spent on courses when they submit their Skills Development Plan. The course weight of programmes will be communicated shortly. Email Shantell Ruthenberg for further information.

CHECKING FOR CLASHES BETWEEN TWO SERVICES

The Graphical Clashes function checks for clashes between any two services such as sewer, storm, water, roads or other services defined in the pipe database (though the second service must be part of the project). Services which need to be tested for clashes can be selected in the dropdown lists and the clearance required between the services


can be specified. Once the analysis is started clash details are displayed. The 'Show Clash' option will change the Design Centre display to position the clash on the centre of the screen and the Long Section option will open the Longitudinal Section dialog and display a long section of the chosen branch as well as a symbol indicating the crossing service.
