Use design and simulation tools that are integrated within the AutoCAD environment.
Optimize project performance and reduce rework.
Quickly and easily explore design options, evaluate safety and standards compliance.
Predictably evaluate the movements of steered vehicles, light rail vehicles, and aircraft, as well as design parking lots and intersection designs using analysis and simulation tools that are integrated with Autodesk software including AutoCAD, AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Plant 3D, AutoCAD Map 3D, and AutoCAD Utility Design software.
Connect the analysis and design processes and enable the reuse of preliminary design work in the detail design phase. Consider safety factors, such as sight lines based on standard design speeds, more easily and interactively.
Optimize project performance in less time than disparate solutions using real-time operational analysis. Expedite the preliminary design phase with easy-to-use real-time simulation and drag-and-drop tools. Create vehicle swept paths that can be saved and referred to later to maintain up-to-date animations, reduce rework, and save time.
Quickly and easily explore alternative design solutions with the productions of multiple layout options that adapt automatically to the dynamic 3D model in AutoCAD Civil 3D. Evaluate safety and standards compliance for parking lot design, refuse and emergency vehicle access, and loading bay access to help meet permitting requirements. Easily analyze vertical clearance, vertical grades, and crossfalls for vehicle access using 3D proposed surface models.
