Some of you might not have the Model Builder that is included in InfraWorks 360. If you purchased the Infrastructure Design Suite Premium or Ultimate, you got stuck with having InfraWorks 360 LT which does NOT have the Model Builder. So, where do you get the data to start building you model?
Some of the major cities have some pretty good GIS data for you to use based on the City or County you are in or are looking for; and then some of them have nothing (at least for free). We don’t want to spend a bunch of money on something we might use once.
Below I have included some links that will get you started with creating your model in InfraWorks 360 LT. The data that is available on these sites is free. Some of this is for terrain, images, etc. Again, your City of County might have more information like centerline of roads, points of interest, etc.

If you are looking for some good 3D models of vehicles, people, buildings, etc., then you can download them from them from Trimble 3D Warehouse…
