Publish, store, and manage large models centrally and more securely in the cloud, fostering project team collaboration. Collaborate with multiple stakeholders by inviting team members to access, download, and edit shared models simultaneously and review multiple project proposals using the same data.
Share your models via the web or on a mobile device with stakeholders who may not have access to InfraWorks 360 software. This capability provides broader access to project proposals as well as the ease and convenience of using a standard web browser or mobile device.
Once models are published or synchronized to InfraWorks 360, further changes are reflected in both the online version and the local copy of the model, minimizing duplication of work.
Provide field access to infrastructure models and select portions of the model to share with a diverse group of stakeholders.
Project team members can use InfraWorks 360 via the web and or on mobile devices to view design alternatives and enhance decision making. Public stakeholders can stay more informed and engaged, and provide real-time comments to project teams by accessing project proposals almost anytime and anywhere.
With the Design Feed feature, public stakeholders can provide comments on projects as they are developed using their web browser or mobile device. As a result, stakeholders can stay more informed and engaged, helping to accelerate the approval process.
Project teams can:
Share all or select portions of your model with a wider audience, including public and project stakeholders. Stakeholders do not need to license InfraWorks 360 software on the desktop. They can view the model using an iPad device or using a website.
Viewers can navigate the model, view storyboards, and hide and show model elements. However, unlike those who share the models and proposals, viewers cannot modify what is shared.
Save time with a streamlined process for sharing all or limited portions of your models to the cloud. Now when you publish your model, proposals and design alternatives are published as well. Changes to models and proposals are automatically applied to Web and mobile models shared in the cloud.
Help increase project engagement by viewing project models on a mobile device with a free† Apple iPad app, available via iTunes.
With the InfraWorks 360 iPad app you can:
† Free Autodesk software licenses and/or cloud-based services are subject to acceptance of and compliance with the terms and conditions of the license agreement or terms of service, as applicable, that accompany such software or cloud-based services.
Presentation technique for demonstrations, help and training.
Screencast functionality offers a new presentation technique best suited for demonstrations as well as for help reference material and training materials.
Capture all mouse movement and keyboard usage in InfraWorks 360, providing others with a better understanding of InfraWorks 360 workflows.
View projects in context of existing conditions.
The ability to visualize your projects—site development, roadway, utilities, architectural, or otherwise—in the context of built environment helps you to better understand the affect your proposed designs will have on the surrounding environment and helps you communicate these implications to collaborators, clients, and the public.
Better communicate design concepts with near-photorealistic rendering tools that add dynamic sun and shadows, more realistic water, and animated clouds. Visual effects tools enable you to interactively alter the display of your model.
Build models from data-rich global content sources.
Quickly build models from data collected and aggregated in the cloud. Use vector data from Open StreetMap including buildings, roads, railways and water features for worldwide locations. Access raster data from BingMap; global, 90 meter SRTM terrain data; and US Department of Agriculture data at 10 meter resolution.
Import and manage point clouds more easily in InfraWorks 360.
Import and manage Point Clouds more easily in InfraWorks 360. You can scale to a larger size and define themes by various attributes (intensity, classification, and elevation) to better visualize and communicate the location captured.
Create a 3D model of the existing environment to generate data-rich design concepts that support faster decision making and stakeholder buy-in.
Instead of relying on traditional 2D maps, drawings, and graphics, create a 3D model to display plans in the setting of the surrounding environment. Generate 3D models for small to large areas based on readily available GIS and geospatial terrain data. Stakeholders can then visualize the different project strategies against the backdrop of existing buildings and landscape.
Incorporate data from existing 2D CAD, 3D models, GIS, CityGML, raster data, point clouds, and multiple file formats.
Import from file-based or database sources to create your base model from multiple sources:
Conduct comprehensive environmental analysis for infrastructure projects, bringing together different types of data from different sources.
Analyze multiple layers of site data much faster and with greater reliability. Work seamlessly with data natively from a variety of formats and coordinate systems typical in today’s hybrid IT environments.
Analyze the visibility of design elements from different locations to help determine optimal locations for placement. Highlight items that are visible within the viewport from a position that you select to easily determine what can be seen from a particular location in the landscape.
Conduct real-time lighting analysis by specifying a location and time of day and year to predict how shadows could affect your project proposal. Analyze sun shadows throughout a period of time.
See how shadows change over the course of a year, and capture that information in your videos. Assist city planning activities by predicting how proposed buildings will throw shadows throughout the day and how it could affect other building owners’ view.
Visually classify assets according to their attributes. For example, highlight traffic emissions along streets and power usage of buildings. With InfraWorks 360, you can use themes to visually classify terrain by elevation, slope, or aspect. Additionally, you can classify point clouds by elevation and classify feature properties.
Import preliminary designs into Civil 3D.
Support for complex horizontal and vertical geometry. Save and reuse object setting configurations.
Configure design elements such as styles and rules to better communicate design intent including:
This workflow allows your customers to visualize and analyze Civil 3D data in the context of the real world.
