Why Networked Software Beats Out Standalone for Project Teams

Does your project team run its Autodesk software applications on their individual computers? If you’re still working in an environment where every individual is running software applications as standalone licenses, you may want to consider adopting a networked license approach to maximize efficiency within your organization.

BIM for Infrastructure is now!

This is your chance to learn how to take advantage of BIM within Infrastructure throughout design, engineering, and construction. As an ever increasing number of infrastructure projects use Building Information Modeling (BIM), many in the industry are realizing they need to embrace BIM to compete and win new work. A range of appealing benefits accompany projects that use a BIM-based approach: less rework, fewer errors, enhanced collaboration, and useful design data.

InfraWorks: Roundabouts & Cul-De-Sacs with Style

June 15, 2015 By Leo Lavayen Leave a comment

In the current release of InfraWorks 2015, there are NO Cul-De-Sac or Roundabout options, not even within the Roadway module. Autodesk is working on the Roundabout feature, but it is unclear when this will be released, we hope it will be later this year.

For now, take a look at the pictures below, 3 styles were created by copying the existing style and making some modifications.
