Upcoming Changes to InfraWorks Services

Severity: 1 – Critical
Products affected: Autodesk InfraWorks 2018.2 and older
Users affected: Customers using Line Girder Analysis, Profile and Corridor Optimizations and Traffic Simulation inside Autodesk InfraWorks 2018.2 and older.
Problem Description: In order to improve the security of your data by meeting SOC2 standards, and to conform to new EU data protection regulations, we need to make some changes to InfraWorks. To continue using analysis services, as well as web and mobile views, upgrade to InfraWorks 2019.0 as soon as it is made available on the Autodesk Desktop App.

 

What’s changing?

On April 9, 2018 it will no longer be possible to create new watershed analyses, traffic simulations, line girder analyses, profile and corridor optimizations with InfraWorks 2018.2 and earlier versions. Also, any existing web and mobile views will have to be recreated in InfraWorks 2019.0.

 

Why are we making these changes?

These changes incorporate the latest in best practices for data privacy and cloud security. This means InfraWorks will comply with the European Union General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), as well as be prepared for a security audit happening later this year.

Solution /Workaround: What should you do to prepare?

Starting today, download results from previously completed line girder analyses, traffic simulations, as well as profile and corridor optimizations.

 

To download Line Girder Analyses

Download the full PDF report and ASBD-ready model from the Line Girder Analysis panel in InfraWorks.

Here’s how. (No cloud credits will be charged to download the full report and model.)

 

To download Profile and Corridor Optimizations

Download the PDF report from the Job Monitor. (Here’s how to view and manage optimizations from the Job Monitor.) Alternatively, you can also find the PDF report attached to the email notification you may have received when the optimization was completed.

Save the optimization results with the model by creating a new proposal with those results – here’s how.

 

To download Traffic Simulations

Download traffic data from the Traffic Simulation panel.

AutoCAD 2019 is Here

There are some MAJOR changes in this year’s release of AutoCAD. Not only are there some great new features, there is also some important integration from some of Autodesk‘s verticals. That’s right, AutoCAD now includes the following:

Architecture Toolset: Use specialized building design features and 8,000+ intelligent architectural objects and styles to speed architectural drawing and documentation.

Mechanical Toolset: Use specialized mechanical design features and 700,000+ intelligent manufacturing parts, features, and symbols to speed product design.

Electrical Toolset: Use specialized electrical design features and 65,000+ intelligent electrical symbols to boost productivity for creating, modifying, and documenting electrical controls systems.

MEP Toolset: Use specialized MEP engineering features and 10,500+ intelligent mechanical, electrical, and plumbing objects to draft, design, and document building systems.

Plant 3D Toolset: Use the specialized plant design and engineering toolset to efficiently produce P&IDs and then integrate them into a 3D plant design model.

Map 3D Toolset: Use specialized mapping features to incorporate GIS and CAD data to support planning, design, and data management. Access spatial data stored in files, databases, and web services, and aggregate it with your AutoCAD design data.

Raster Design Toolset: Use raster to vector tools to help you edit scanned drawings and convert raster images into DWG objects.
