On July 3, Autodesk released an update to Autodesk® InfraWorks™ 2015 software and Autodesk® InfraWorks 360TM software that also provides enhancements to the Roadway Design and Bridge Design vertical applications.
The update provides enhancements to InfraWorks 360 that include faster proposal switching, and streamlined web and mobile model synchronisation.
Roadway Design for InfraWorks 360 customers will appreciate new features that enable the automated conversion of GIS roads to design roads, the addition of left-hand driving support and new standards-driven pavement marking.
The update gives Bridge Design for InfraWorks 360 customers the ability to explore a wider range of precast concrete bridge concepts that reflect local construction practices with quantities accurately reflected.
The update will be available to InfraWorks and InfraWorks 360 Subscription customers via the Subscription Centre under Product Enhancements. Look for Release 2 which is labelled 2015.2. There is no need to uninstall and reinstall your current software; for people running both InfraWorks as part of a Design Suite and InfraWorks 360, you’ll want to run the update for both InfraWorks and InfraWorks 360. For folks with Roadway Design for InfraWorks 360 and Bridge Design for InfraWorks 360 entitlements, all that is required is to update your InfraWorks 360 software.
Along with the updates to existing offerings, Autodesk® Drainage Design for InfraWorks 360TM launched on July 3. Just like Roadway Design and Bridge Design, Drainage Design for InfraWorks 360 is a separate offering that requires you to have a license of InfraWorks 360. This new offering helps civil engineers accelerate design and analysis of drainage associated with roadway design. The drainage design solution takes advantage of the robust, data-rich model created in InfraWorks 360, built-in design standards, and the computing power of the cloud, to automate processes, help improve design accuracy and better understand the drainage impacts of road design alternatives in less time.
