Although InfraWorks software was created for designers and civil engineers to plan and design infrastructure projects in the context of the real world, it is useful as a site logistics planning tool. This class will cover workflows on how to use InfraWorks 360 software to create professional 3D site logistics plans. We will use InfraWorks 360 software’s model builder to create the site background, use ReCap Photo software to import a 3D model created from site photos, use Bluebeam to create annotated terrain overlays, and show how to import 3D models from several sources such as SketchUp and Revit software to create equipment libraries. We will use the proposals tab to model the different phases of construction, enabling phased site logistics. And we will review how to use coverage areas to model excavation in the 3D terrain. We will also show how to export professional graphics using the storyboard, and we will discuss how to import these models for use in virtual reality.
- Understand the reasons to use InfraWorks rather than SketchUp, Revit, or Bluebeam to do site logistics
- Learn how to create 3D backgrounds using model builder
- Learn how to add, move, rotate, and scale objects in a scene (such as equipment, buildings, roads, fences, signs, people, and vegetation)
- Learn how to produce presentation materials such as storyboards, images, and VR models
