    A colleague says, “We've got a project with a 1227m bridge structure including 578m cable stay bridge, 6 approach/exit ramps, 2 overpasses, 5 pedestrian overpasses and numerous walls. Can you create an intelligent model in Revit?” You've used Revit software off and on for the past 10 years, and you remember how painful it was to do a bridge or tunnel that followed complex Civil 3D alignments. Then there are the inevitable design changes that occur while you’re trying to model these bridges. In this class, we’ll discuss how we utilized the InfraWorks bridge workflows to develop a fully parametric intelligent model of a multibridge cable-stay structure in a lot less time when compared to traditional 2D AutoCAD, Civil 3D, or even Revit workflows! We'll demonstrate the adaptability of the parametric InfraWorks bridge model and its ability to adapt to design changes. We'll demonstrate the breadth of information created, and finish it off with stunning screenshots and fly-through renders.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn about how to transition from traditional, 2D bridge workflows to modeling in InfraWorks using parametric Inventor parts
    • Learn about using InfraWorks, Civil 3D, Inventor, and Revit to create a parametric, adaptable, multibridge intelligent model
    • Learn about the automation power and flexibility of using Excel- and iLogic-driven Inventor models within InfraWorks
    • Learn about the value that Hatch gained using the InfraWorks bridge workflow with some quantitative numbers on time spent
