Are your subdivision layout exhibits flat and boring? Do you ask stakeholders to imagine key design features because your 2D plans and Photoshop software renderings do little to differentiate your design from those denied by your municipalities planning commission? Do you avoid generating 3D models of your proposed layouts because of the time involved? Add some depth to your proposals by combining AutoCAD Civil 3D software and InfraWorks software to quickly generate and present 3D subdivision layouts in the context of their surroundings. This session will focus on establishing efficient workflows for generating subdivision layouts using AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and then we will visualize those layouts in 3D using InfraWorks software. You will learn how to use the automated parcel layout tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D software, exchanging layout information between AutoCAD Civil 3D software and InfraWorks software. Then you'll learn how to build a complete 3D model of your subdivision ready for an expedited approval at your next planning commission meeting.
