Autodesk University 2018

It’s that time of year once again. Or at least getting there, quickly. I have been chosen for 2 classes this year. One of the classes will show you how to animate objects for use in InfraWorks. And the other one will show you how to use Civil View within 3ds Max.

Below is a pic of the classes and the ID’s for the classes. If you would like to sign up for them, registration will open August 8, 2018. Click on the pic to take you to Autodesk University website. I look forward to seeing as many people as I can fit in the room…

Autodesk InfraWorks 2019.1 Update

Autodesk as released the long awaited update for InfraWorks. Below you will find what is new in the update…

Roadway Design:

  •  Delayed model regeneration for road design reduces the number of times a model regenerates by allowing the designer to delay regeneration until after edits to a roadway’s horizontal and vertical alignment or components are complete.
  • The Curve Properties Panel in profile view has always displayed geometric values of a selected vertical curve. Now, values such as K-value can be modified, and immediately reflected on the profile view from the Curve Properties panel.
  •  Improved spiral curve spiral support for InfraWorks to Civil 3D interoperability. In InfraWorks, users can only create roads with clothoid spiral types. However, if spiral types other than clothoid are imported into InfraWorks from Civil 3D, InfraWorks does maintain those spiral types when the centerline geometry is edited but the spiral types can not be changed. Previously, if the centerline geometry of a road from Civil 3D was edited in InfraWorks, all the spiral types in the road would have been converted to clothoid.
  •  The spiral type is now displayed in the Spiral In and Spiral Out sections of the Stack when a Spiral-Curve-Spiral is selected.

Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS (preview):

Collaboration:

  • Choose whether or not to include Bookmarks with Shared Views. Use them to set locations you can navigate to quickly.
  • Choose whether or not to make detailed model data (asset properties) available with a Shared View, so that stakeholders can review specific data about infrastructure assets.
  • When opening, publishing or syncing an InfraWorks model with BIM 360, you’ll now see both the Account and Project names so that you can more easily choose the correct place for you model.

Civil Structures:

  • Add piers to any location along a bridge’s length using the right-click context menu.
  • Change the number of piers on a bridge without resetting girder attributes for existing girder groups.
  • Set the edge of the bridge deck above the roadway surface when using bridge deck assemblies from Autodesk Inventor.
  • Set deck continuity at each individual pier.
  • Use parametric part assemblies created in Autodesk Inventor as deck and girder components in Autodesk InfraWorks.
  • Update an existing bridge in your Revit model that was previously sent to Revit from InfraWorks
  • Model and design parametric tunnels in the context of your overall infrastructure design project.
  • Send your InfraWorks tunnel to Revit for detailed design.
  • Author custom parametric tunnel sections in Autodesk Inventor, for use in Autodesk InfraWorks.
