Modeling an Elevated Guideway with InfraWorks, Civil 3D, Inventor, and Revit
Collapse Expand


In this class, we’ll cover how different steps of modeling the guideway are carried out within Autodesk software. We’ll start with demonstrating how to generate the guideway’s alignment and then import into InfraWorks software to define the course of the guideway. Next, we’ll present how to generate various sections of the guideway in Inventor software and then import to InfraWorks to build up the model. Finally, we’ll show how the guideway model is exported to Revit software to be enhanced with appurtenances that are natively modeled in Revit. The overarching goal of this class is to demonstrate how this workflow empowers the software to interact and supplement each other to ultimately produce a guideway model that is parametric and dynamic. Furthermore, you could readily use the model for developing construction documents, as well as delivering multiple BIM (Building Information Modeling) uses, such as 4D scheduling, and 5D estimating.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to modify the Guideway’s alignment in Civil 3D and have the InfraWorks Guideway model update accordingly
  • Learn how to produce parametric components of the Guideway in Inventor and transfer them to InfraWorks
  • Learn how to produce a Revit model of the Guideway directly from InfraWorks
  • Learn about the interconnectivity within Civil 3D, InfraWorks, Inventor, and Revit in designing a linear bridge structure
