This course illustrates key new features and tools with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016 software, InfraWorks 360 software, and Vehicle Tracking software. We will put on display data collaboration between software for Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows. Beginning with a preliminary design, in this class we will create, analyze, and edit design features such as roads, roundabouts, and bridges while collaborating with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016 software. At the end of our lecture we will share our final design models to the cloud to be accessed by Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform and InfraWorks 360 software web viewer. In addition, we will also animate our final design into a video presentation with 3ds Max Design software.
Join in on this roundtable discussion where you will get a detailed look into the implementation of Infraworks 360 on three entirely unique transportation projects at various stages of the design process. The first project is a full-blown multi-million dollar roadway, bridge, & drainage project through an active rock quarry that chose to utilize Infraworks 360 at the advanced design stage of the project in order to enhance the public outreach process. The second project will provide a peak into an LRT & BRT 14-mile corridor alternatives analysis where various segments of the corridor were brought to life in Infraworks 360 in order to incite agreement amongst various jurisdictions & stakeholders. Lastly, you will get to see how Infraworks 360 was used to develop 3 concepts for a parking lot and trailhead relocation at popular local hiking destination. These 3 unique real world examples will give you great look into how Infraworks 360 can be utilized in the world of transportation.
In this case study we will present how InfraWorks software has been used to establish a multidisciplinary coordinating model using Infrastructure Design Suite software, and we’ll describe a successful workflow of how to best interact between the different software systems. The project is a complex hydropower scheme that includes a total of 20 kilometers of tunnels, 4 different reservoirs, several dams, creek intakes, and 2 different underground power stations. The lecture will focus on the advantage of using InfraWorks software from the early phase in a project through to the design phase. We will show you how we combined publicly available terrain data with highly detailed aerial laser scanning, aerial imagery, and underwater surveying. We will show our developed workflow between InfraWorks software, Revit software, and AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and how you can use InfraWorks software to combine geographic information system (GIS) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) in a common 3D model. Using InfraWorks software, large amounts of data was made accessible to Project Team members with standard laptops and workstations.
Municipal infrastructure engineering projects like mass rapid transit, improved sewers, and water mains have been booming over the last few years due to population growth and a focus on better urban planning to do more with existing city-owned property and road networks. For every project, Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is required to do a full investigation of existing underground assets before the design is complete and certainly before shovels hit the ground. In this session we will first look at various best practices using AutoCAD Civil 3D software to build intelligence into SUE data sets and Navisworks software for performing clash analysis between existing utility objects and design objects. We will then end the session using InfraWorks 360 software to present our combined model to others in the Project Team. Using InfraWorks 360-Collaboration software, the session will show some inventive mobile field capability for viewing, photo, and data capture that you can post to the model.
See how you can use more of the products that you already own in Infrastructure Design Suite software. View how Building Information Modeling (BIM) can help you to extract additional value from your completed work.
InfraWorks software ships with a basic selection of 3D assets for populating your models. In this class we will learn effective ways of preparing your own 3D models using applications such as 3ds Max software and Trimble’s SketchUp modeling program. From here we will dive into InfraWorks software and learn how to import your custom assets, arrange them into libraries, and export them for use by other user. We will also demonstrate some effective techniques for using roadways and 3D models to create custom road and rail corridors in InfraWorks software.
Come be one of the first to get a look at Autodesk’s newest urban planning offering - Urban Canvas. Gain valuable knowledge, insight and hands-on experience into this new product, and share your impressions. The design and development team will give a product overview, and Dan Campbell from the City of Vancouver will share his experience with early testing of Urban Canvas. You will have a chance to discuss workflows in the new program and compare it with your experience and expectations. This is a unique opportunity to collaborate with Autodesk experts and other urban planners and designers to help shape the future of the product.
This session will provide an overview of 2 new Stormwater Modeling Solutions—Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) and AutoCASE software—that will help civil engineers and landscape architects design for the future. For decades cities drained stormwater with sewers, but these systems are fraught with pollution and flooding issues. In response cities have embraced a new “green infrastructure” approach to managing stormwater—partnering with developers to install absorptive rain gardens and green roofs to harvest water, filter pollutants, and provide a host of other social and environmental benefits. Autodesk, Inc., and its partner Impact Infrastructure have introduced these solutions to support this revolution. As green infrastructure is still a relatively new concept, GSI and AutoCASE software eliminate the learning curve by providing an easy way to design these techniques and analyze their benefits. This session features a case study on using GSI and AutoCASE software for the San Francisco Civic Center Historic District.
Civil infrastructure industry professionals, product developers, and technology evangelists are invited to join a roundtable discussion on how we might reimagine the way Building Information Modeling (BIM) for civil engineer is implemented. In this session we will focus on how underground utility piping has evolved in Autodesk, Inc., software, beginning from Land Desktop software, continuing through AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and now into InfraWorks 360 software. We will talk about what worked well through the years, what failed miserably, and what Autodesk can do in the future to improve what we call BIM for the world of civil infrastructure.

Explore workflows; specialize in roadway design, bridge design with line girder analysis, and drainage design step by step with the creation of new drainage designs, adding details that enable engineers to communicate and get better-informed results with the Drainage Design Module.
Helping the community visualize a project’s impact before construction is complete can be very difficult unless you use the right tools for the job. This class explores conceptual site-design options using InfraWorks 360 software to visualize realistic proposed sites. Starting with Model Builder and Revit software models, you will learn how to create realistic and accurate models that support a more informative and productive public-communication model. After clearly demonstrating the conceptual and preliminary design to stakeholders, we take the design into AutoCAD Civil 3D software to run quantity takeoffs and finish the detailed design. The design is then taken back into InfraWorks 360 software to create high-impact visuals to better support public participation and communication. We will perform various types of analysis along the way to validate the design and ensure design parameters are being met.
This class will help you to explore preliminary bridge design options by using Bridge Design for InfraWorks 360 to visualize realistic civil structures in the context of the surrounding proposed site. Then Structural Bridge Design software is used to analyze the bridge in the cloud. We run a line girder analysis to verify the structural strength of the bridge girders and ensure they meet design standard requirements. Next we take the design into Navisworks software to uncover design problems and constructability issues more effectively and plan the construction sequencing. The InfraWorks software model is taken into AutoCAD Civil 3D software for precise grading. Then we round trip the model back into InfraWorks for better design communication.
