Does it seem like every InfraWorks demo you see features a road or a bridge? What about site projects like schools, hospitals, big box stores, and others? In this hands-on lab, we explore the use of InfraWorks tools to create stunning 3D conceptual models of site projects.

This class discusses the results of an Advanced Infrastructure Analysis Technology assessment recently conducted by Autodesk Consulting for a major electric and gas utility that has over 15 million customers. A key focus of the engagement was the evaluation of emerging mobile and visualization technologies of potential benefit to the client's gas transmission and distribution network operations for both the short-term and long-term replacement of current mobile solutions. In this class, we demonstrate a number of Autodesk products, including InfraWorks civil infrastructure design software, ReCap™ reality capture software, and Autodesk® PLM 360 cloud-based product lifecycle management software. We highlight current advances in emerging technologies, including reality capture and augmented reality. We discuss the business requirements that were identified, the current limitations and advantages of each solution, and the final short-term and long-term recommendations that were presented.
