White Paper: Advancing Civil Infrastructure Design Workflows – AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks 360 Combine for Improved Outcomes
Learn how AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks 360 together impact civil engineering workflows in this third-party assessment by Informed Infrastructure.
- When combined with AutoCAD Civil 3D, InfraWorks 360 delivered significant time savings in preliminary design and early detailed design processes. Reviewers were able to quickly produce intelligent design models as well as high-quality visuals of their project in the context of real-world surroundings.
- Reviewers pointed to the ability to easily interface with stakeholders as a key benefit of incorporating InfraWorks 360 in their workflows. The ability to bring up data for a project site and optioneer design alternatives early on in the process, even during meetings, was a compounding time saver as it sped the time to design consensus.
- Each reviewer pursued his or her own individualized workflows, and each was dealing with different geographies with different climate and code requirements. Despite these differences, they each saw time savings and improvements to the quality of their designs when combining AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks 360.
- AutoCAD Civil 3D, Autodesk’s civil design software, remains the primary tool for the completion of detailed
design and documentation. In addition, its ability to support 2D and 3D provides the means to bridge CADbased
workflows while navigating new BIM approaches to project delivery.
