Create and evaluate alternative designs in the context of existing environment
Autodesk® InfraWorks® is easy-to-use sketching tool for land planners and infrastructure designers. Autodesk InfraWorks produces visually high-level models without separate visualization software.
InfraWorks can be used for modeling single city blocks, entire cities, or hundreds of kilometers long corridor models. InfraWorks is integrated seamlessly in design process. InfraWorks is included in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection.
When starting the use of InfraWorks a model of existing conditions is created from terrain, CAD, GIS, raster, and BIM-data. After that, sketching can be started. Sketching tools are very easy to use and it is possible to create multiple alternative designs quickly. User can switch between alternatives and analyze conditions with measurement tools, thematic maps, sight analysis or sun shadow analysis.
It is possible to import detailed designs from other design software like Autodesk® Revit®, AutoCAD® Civil® 3D, or Autodesk 3ds Max®. Designs that are created in InfraWorks can also be exported to Civil 3D or 3ds Max. InfraWorks data can also be viewed in 2D format in AutoCAD® Map 3D or Civil 3D. Models made in InfraWorks can also be viewed in web browser or iPad.
