This energetic and engaging session presented by industry experts will share the lessons learned throughout the project lifecycle using InfraWorks software on both horizontal and vertical projects. InfraWorks has been around for 3 years, and the 2017 release finally gives it the opportunity to become more than a planning or marketing tool. The new features enable increased productivity and project collaboration with new additions of multiple data sources like native Autodesk files, as well as various other external nonnative popular file formats that make this a powerful application. From conceptual design, marketing, client relations, and traffic control plans, to as-builts and point cloud data, InfraWorks is an amazing collaboration tool. If you looked at InfraWorks previously and saw potential but couldn't find how it was applicable to your workflow, take the opportunity to learn how the program has evolved!
- Discover the best-use case for InfraWorks
- Understand how both vertical and horizontal construction can benefit from InfraWorks
- Learn how using InfraWorks breaks down silos during project lifecycle
- Discover how InfraWorks ties in with all project data
