This class covers a typical utility workflow using Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite, highlighting its top new features and benefits. The workflow uses AutoCAD® Raster Design and AutoCAD® Map 3D software to gather and edit base data, such as aerial images, CAD drawings, and GIS data, including electric industry models. Analysis tools help identify potential areas and corridors for electric assets. Autodesk® Infrastructure Modeler software uses the data for a large-scale 3D model that combines the "What is" situation with "What could be" proposals. Conceptual designs of 3D overhead distribution networks, windmills or solar panels, buildings, and vegetation provide sophisticated visualizations for decision makers. A precise, model-based electric network is designed with AutoCAD® Utility Design based on these proposals. Standards-driven workflows and rules-based analysis tools ensure a network design with consistency and reliability.
- Produce high-quality 3D visualizations with Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler
- Use AutoCAD Map 3D and AutoCAD Utility Design for electric network planning, design, analysis, and maintenance
- Explain the benefits that using Infrastructure Design Suite offers for typical workflows
- Describe how the different products in Infrastructure Design Suite work together
CAD, GIS, and landscape architecture have inspired Markus since he attended university. In his roles as a CAD and GIS user, project manager, solution implementer, educator, and technical salesperson, Markus has gathered a wealth of experience in the Infrastructure and web mapping business. He is especially skilled at working with users to develop solutions, particularly for utilities, land planning companies, and government departments. Markus is a member of the AEC technical sales team in Central Europe and blogs for his “Geospatial Navigator” (German).
