InfraWorks software has grown from being a 3D visualization tool used to help win bids, to a core tool used throughout a project's lifecycle. It's now a powerful software system that enables the civil designer to take a proposal in InfraWorks software and run with it to AutoCAD Civil 3D software. Gone are the days of creating preliminary drawings just to have to create the final design from a blank sheet. InfraWorks software will run the first leg of the race and then hand off the baton to AutoCAD Civil 3D software, which will complete the next leg of the race. This lab will walk attendees through the process of creating a design proposal in InfraWorks software, starting with a base map and then adding intersecting design roads. From there we will create points of vertical intersection (PVIs) for each road, add widenings, adjust curb returns for typical vehicle types, and add turn lanes in the intersection. We will then export the data out and bring it into AutoCAD Civil 3D software where we can fine-tune it and complete the rest of the project.
- Learn how to create an existing conditions via model builder and manual insertion of data
- Learn how to create software features like proposals, design roads, and simple site grading
- Learn how to edit features: PVIs, widenings, intersections, side slope, and grading
- Learn how to import into AutoCAD Civil 3D software: Alignments and profiles, surfaces, plan and profile sheets to continue the design process
