Learn how Autodesk® Infrastructure Modeler (AIM) software can enhance your transportation workflows during the conceptual design phase. Not only can you use Autodesk® Infrastructure Modeler to provide eye-catching conceptual visuals in record time, but also you can feed this conceptual model into AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software to proceed with your design. This class focuses on employing Autodesk at the beginning of a transportation project and the interoperability between Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler and Civil 3D. In addition, interoperability options between Autodesk infrastructure Modeler and other products in Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite Ultimate, such as Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software, will be discussed. This class will benefit Infrastructure Design Suite users who are interested in getting the most from their suite investment as well as standalone Civil 3D and Autodesk infrastructure Modeler users who want to know more about how these products can interact.
- Share data between Civil 3D and Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler
- Create fast visualizations to communicate the preliminary design produced in Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler
- Explain the value of Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite Ultimate for transportation projects
- Begin using Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler for conceptual design and planning
