Autodesk Introduces the Next Generation of Tools for a New Era of Infrastructure
Autodesk is one of the very few companies that can bring architecture, manufacturing, and construction to bear for the infrastructure of the future – facilitating more interconnected vertical and horizontal infrastructure design processes, more efficient civil structures workflows, and improved project delivery.
The stakes are high for states and local governments to rebuild and repair long-neglected infrastructure by delivering on-time, on-budget projects. Every minute saved, and every risk mitigated during design and engineering conserves taxpayer money, contributes to the well-being of communities, and minimizes environmental impact.
Autodesk supports once-in-a-generation infrastructure investments being made across the globe, with innovations across their entire portfolio to reshape the systems by which we move people and goods and improve the environments and communities in which we live.
Innovations such as:
- Model-based design that facilitates better design decisions.
- Conceptual design capabilities that improve understanding of the impact of projects before a single shovel breaks ground.
- Automated workflows that support more efficient design.
- Cloud-based data-sharing that improves stakeholder collaboration.
- Technology convergence between manufacturing and infrastructure to accelerate the industry shift toward prefabrication and industrialized construction.
To help deliver infrastructure projects with better outcomes, we’re excited to share the 2023 releases of Autodesk® Civil 3D®, Autodesk® InfraWorks®, and Autodesk® ReCap™ Pro.
Automation, Interoperability, and Better Collaboration for End-to-End Project Delivery Improvements
With Autodesk latest updates, there is an enhanced integration between InfraWorks and our structural analysis and simulation tools, enabling us to assess the structural integrity of our designs more effectively. And improved connections with Autodesk® Inventor® make it even easier to bring custom bridge parts and components into the design process.
Since almost every infrastructure project begins with site work, a new Help Center makes it easier to get started with Grading Optimization for Civil 3D. Enhanced notification capabilities to help you stay on top of the optimization process and ensure you achieve the best grading plan possible for your project while minimizing material waste.
And should you need to share a digital representation of your project with collaborators, support for cloud-based workflows in ReCap Pro facilitates visualization, presentation, and inspection processes in the field using large, visually rich reality capture data. Here, the Autodesk® Forge® viewer makes it simple for anyone to review and annotate models, simply with Autodesk® Docs and a browser.
There are many more updates to share with you that improve design efficiencies for every segment of infrastructure, including pressurized utilities, rail, and civil structures design.
