Description

Description

You can address AutoCAD Civil 3D software project visualization in several different ways, depending on the project needs. You can achieve full photorealistic visualization by exporting data to 3ds Max software. You can also achieve a more dynamically adjustable, yet still impressive, visualization through InfraWorks software, and you can provide faster access to different project options. Navisworks software can provide a more utilitarian option, focusing on project construction analysis and presentation. This session will discuss the relative benefits of each and the steps needed to achieve the desired results. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D and 3ds Max. AIA Approved
