[Content Hub] Get the Most out of Your Autodesk InfraWorks Investment

I can’t think of another Autodesk product that sees so many rolling updates as Autodesk InfraWorks 360. In addition to the annual release (get a round-up of what’s new in the 2018 software here), new features and capabilities are being added throughout the year. Subscription customers can download these updates via the Subscription Center.

Regular updates and improvements are great, but how do you stay on top of what’s new and put it to use in your design projects?

5 “Must-Watch” InfraWorks 360 Classes from Autodesk University

Autodesk University (AU) is a great event for anyone looking to explore new innovations in digital design or brush up on their software skills. But not all public sector organizations have the budget to send their CAD teams to AU. No problem! AU has assembled a catalog of on-demand sessions that you can watch for free. You can also download the presentations, workbooks, and transcripts to keep by your side as you explore what you’ve learned.

Why Transportation System Design Needs to Move Beyond Traditional CAD

It always blows my mind when I talk to designers and engineers who are still using CAD, even Microsoft Visio, for engineering and design work. But when it comes to designing future transportation systems, where complex workflows, tight budgets, and multiple stakeholders complicate project success, CAD simply doesn’t cut it anymore.

Why? Drew Olsen, writing for the BIM on the Rocks blogs, shares some reasons:

You need a faster way to get in front of the stakeholder to advance reviews

What’s New in InfraWorks 360 and Civil 3D

Last fall saw some major updates to Autodesk’s flagship civil engineering software -  InfraWorks 360 and AutoCAD Civil 3D.

To give users an overview of what’s new, the Autodesk product team have come together for “The Dan and Dave Show” once more. What features will be added or updated? Why were these changes chosen over others? The on-demand video below includes answers to these questions and more from the guys who call the shots when it comes to the development of InfraWorks 360 and Civil 3D.

Keeping Pace with Climate Change: Flood Analysis and Mapping Tools

Flood risk assessment and mitigation is a critical part of any civil engineer’s job. After Superstorm Sandy devastated the New Jersey/New York shore in 2012, it was discovered shortly thereafter that federal flood maps drawn up by FEMA were wrong. Unfortunately for many home and business owners, developers relied on FEMA’s assessment of risks when they built new homes near the water and property owners made decisions about whether to buy flood insurance based on those maps.
