Autodesk Introduces InfraWorks 360 Pro To Drive BIM in the Infrastructure Industry
As part of an ongoing effort to drive the adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM) within the infrastructure industry, Autodesk, Inc. announced Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro. Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro offers the latest 3D modeling, visualization and cloud-based collaboration technologies to help efficiently close the estimated $30 trillion gap worldwide between desperately needed infrastructure and the funding required to deliver it.
To expand access to the critical BIM solutions that design professionals need to address this challenge, the new solution is available via a quarterly plan, making it ideal for firms to test-drive Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro, or use it for short-term project needs.
Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro enhances BIM workflows by providing desktop software and cloud-based capabilities that enable multi-discipline infrastructure project stakeholders in geographically dispersed offices to publish, store, collaborate and manage large models centrally in the cloud via desktop or mobile devices. The ability to rapidly produce proposals by creating and aggregating project information, which can then be viewed within the InfraWorks environment as it might appear in the real world, helps make Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro a powerful tool for winning new business and accelerating the project approval process.
Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro contains breakthrough 3D modeling and visualization technology that goes beyond traditional computer-aided design (CAD) by helping users quickly create compelling simulations and visualizations of design alternatives. With its ability to import a variety of existing conditions data including GIS, satellite imagery, and point clouds (including those generated by Autodesk ReCap), Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro helps make it possible to design within the context of real site conditions from the start of a project lifecycle.
Users of Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro will benefit from newly released capabilities for the desktop software that include enhanced terrain grading and shaping to help users easily create and maintain level sites, as well as near-photorealistic rendering that allows users to apply high quality graphics or choose faster rendering to more quickly navigate large models.
