Features

Infrastructure modelling and visualisation

The features of InfraWorks™ software go beyond traditional CAD and GIS platforms, transforming preliminary design workflows. Civil engineers and planners can help deliver projects by more efficiently managing larger-scale infrastructure models created from existing data sources, engineering in context from the start and generating proposals at the appropriate level of detail.

    Civil engineering design

  • More intuitive user experience New

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Get things done faster with a user interface and experience redesigned to be more intuitive. 

  • Speciality vertical application extensibility

    INFRAWORKS 360

    Extend the abilities of InfraWorks 360 with advanced industry-specific tools that help improve your designs and project performance.

  • Layout abilities

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Add rich, lifelike details such as roads, bridges and buildings that make your models and proposals more realistic and easier to understand.

  • Evaluation of multiple proposals

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    More efficiently evaluate multiple alternatives using the data behind preliminary design concepts to better predict how alternatives may perform.

    Collaborating in the cloud

  • Managing and publishing models

    INFRAWORKS 360

    Publish, store and manage large models centrally and more securely in the cloud, fostering project team collaboration.

  • Field access

    INFRAWORKS 360

    Provide field access to infrastructure models and project scenarios to a diverse group of stakeholders.

  • Quantitative, real-time feedback

    INFRAWORKS 360

    With the Design Feed feature, public stakeholders can provide comments on projects as they're developed using their web browser or mobile device.

  • Scenario publishing (enhanced)

    INFRAWORKS 360

    Use scenarios to share all or part of a model with a wider audience, including public and project stakeholders.

  • InfraWorks iPad app

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Help increase project engagement by viewing project models and scenarios on a mobile device with a free** Apple iPad app, available via iTunes.

    Visualisation for infrastructure projects

  • Visual storytelling

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Use storyboard tools to take reviewers through your proposal virtually so they can experience the design before it's built.

  • Ultra-realistic visual effects

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Better communicate design concepts with photorealistic rendering tools that add dynamic sun and shadows, more realistic water and animated clouds.

  • Easier model reviews with tooltips

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Add clarity to reviews with tooltips containing text or properties that display when you hover over or right-click a feature in your model.

  • Advanced style features

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Import and use 3D models for parts or furniture. Create custom styles for various infrastructure elements.

    Model creation for civil planning

  • Cloud Services

    Model Builder for InfraWorks 360 (Preview) New

    INFRAWORKS 360

    Use this preview cloud service to automatically generate a 3D contextual model for anywhere in the United Kingdom.

  • Model the existing environment

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Create a 3D model of the existing environment to generate data-rich design concepts that support faster decision making and stakeholder buy-in.

  • Use data and models from Autodesk products

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Civil planning tools enable you to build large infrastructure models by accessing data and importing models from other Autodesk products.

  • Import data and combine models (enhanced)

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Incorporate data from existing 2D CAD, 3D models, GIS, CityGML, raster data, point clouds and multiple file formats.

    Model analysis

  • Dynamic site analysis

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Conduct comprehensive environmental analysis for infrastructure projects, bringing together different types of data from different sources.

  • Measure distances and areas

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Analyse the visibility of design elements from different locations to help determine optimal locations for placement.

  • Shadow and lighting analysis

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Conduct real-time lighting analysis by specifying a location and time of day and year to predict how shadows could affect your project proposal.

  • Theme palettes

    INFRAWORKS, INFRAWORKS 360

    Visually classify assets according to their attributes. For example, highlight traffic emissions along streets and power usage of buildings.
