Description

Description

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.

Target Audience
