Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D is an essential Autodesk project for engineering of roads, highways, civil buildings as airports, railroads and other infrastructure elements. The release features improved delivery of projects, better consistency of data as well as instant response to . This section lists the parameters in this subassembly that can be mapped to one or more target objects, such as a surface, alignment, or profile object in a drawing. For more information, see in the AutoCAD Civil 3D User’s Guide Help. Productivity Tools for Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software includes a collection of tools and content to support regional or industry-specific workflows that can be downloaded and installed by Civil 3D subscription customers. Each tool is named in way that reflects the region or country that the tool applies, user interface language, OS, and description of the tool.
The latest versions of these programs offer a host of enhancements and new capabilities that help users streamline legacy project workflows and improve decision making to achieve the best outcomes at lower costs for their projects, Autodesk said.
Recently, Autodesk announced reduced pricing and a significantly simplified packaging of the InfraWorks offering. With the new packaging, subscribers now receive access to the core functionality in InfraWorks along with the advanced functionality found in the Road Design, Bridge Design and Drainage Design application modules, modules that were previously licensed separately, all in a single offering.
Along with the new feature functionality, Autodesk also announced the availability of InfraWorks from the Autodesk eStore. New and enhanced features include: In this latest release, roundabout design models from InfraWorks can now be brought into Civil 3D. In addition, bridge designs can now be easily brought into Revit for more detailed design work. Design data can also be exchanged between InfraWorks and Civil 3D, and Revit, allowing changes made to the InfraWorks model to be reflected throughout the detailed design phase, thus enabling designers to test and optimize design alternatives more quickly.

The new multi-modal simulation capabilities in InfraWorks combine the power of an integrated geometric model with analysis functionality to help urban and traffic planners study the impact of their civil infrastructure designs to the movement of buses and trains; parking areas; taxis, ride sharing, autonomous vehicles; walking, cycling and other personal modes of travel.
InfraWorks provides planning professionals with the tools to design more attractive, economical and ecologically sustainable environments for their citizens. Multi-modal simulation feature helps urban and traffic planners analyze movement of people and vehicles to find optimal design solutions.
The latest release of InfraWorks delivers improvements to Model Builder, including: In addition, with InfraWorks users now have the ability to overlay DWG files, in addition to raster images, over InfraWorks models with full location, scale, rotation control and correlation tools. The ability to take advantage of data rich sources like Autodesk ReCap, 2D DWG files, Raster Overlays and Open Street Map data allows InfraWorks users to model more accurate designs within a real-world view quickly and earlier in the project lifecycle.
This release also introduces the Contextual Stack, enabling users to have access to and edit design data about specific assets they select such as roads, pipe network parts, bridge parts, among others. Users can customize the data they wish to see and choose where they want to see it.
With these enhancements, users have greater detailed engineering-level control over their designs earlier in the design process. With AutoCAD Civil 3D , users can take advantage of improvements and new features to help streamline legacy workflows, centralize the management of design and drafting standards, and better integrate with Autodesk InfraWorks With AutoCAD Civil 3D , users can now also take advantage of the roundabout-related features available in Autodesk Vehicle Tracking software to enable the design of roundabout objects right from within Civil 3D.
Users can now take advantage of roundabout-related features available in Autodesk Vehicle Tracking software right from within Civil 3D. With these features users can now create data shortcuts for corridors and reference them in other drawings, create multiple DREFs at once, and simplify the management of drawing styles, allowing teams to work better together and enforce standards more easily. In the latest Civil 3D, feature lines can be used as a corridor baseline, corner shapes are automatically cleaned up and more accurate, multiple feature lines can now be extracted from corridor regions and, corridor solids can now be assigned property data that is retained throughout the design workflow.
Purchasing an AutoCAD license typically includes access to the latest AutoCAD technology, wherever you are, be it at your workplace, home, in the field, or even on your mobile device. It also comes with one-on-one online support with an AutoCAD expert and free webinar training. Versions — AutoCAD has different versions ranging from student version which is free to download, the entry-level versions, and up to the most powerful versions.
