InfraWorks 2020.2 Update

Autodesk has released the InfraWorks 2020.2 update. Below is a list of new features, fixes and enhancements…

  • Added the ability to use parametric bridge bearings from Autodesk Inventor in your InfraWorks civil structure projects. This allows users to control the geometry of bridge girder and pier interface with greater precision.
  • Added the ability to review bearing top elevation values in the Stack when a bearing is selected.
  • Enabled bookmarks from your InfraWorks models to be available in the Autodesk Viewer when models are published to BIM 360 Document Management.
  • Improved the Extend Schema tool to enforce naming length limitations that could arise when InfraWorks data is published to ArcGIS as feature layers.
  • Made it easier for you to geo-reference your InfraWorks model data by improving the ways that you define coordinate systems for new models. With this release onward, new models will no longer have LL84 defined as the database coordinate system by default. Instead, choose the best coordinate system for your design project whenever you create a new model.
  • Enhanced the look and feel of the Model Builder user interface to match the entire InfraWorks application interface.
  • Added a new option for linear feature vertex prediction when reviewing linear features in the cross section view. By default, Vertex Prediction is now ON. When you modify a cross section vertex with Vertex Prediction ON, InfraWorks will automatically place the next vertex by estimating the best-fit for the next vertex, using the previous two vertices to make the prediction. Modifying a vertex with Vertex Prediction turned OFF will simply cause the next vertex to be created with duplicate values from the previous vertex.
  • Made enhancements for roundabouts, left and right turn widening lanes, and u-turns when using Traffic Simulation.
Fixed an issue where some tools in the select draw style catalog were not working properly.
Civil Structures
Fixed an issue where the size and location of bridge piers displayed incorrectly in Autodesk Civil 3D when imported into C3D in IMX format.
Drainage Design
Fixed an issue where the select component dialog was not showing the correct catalog location for custom parts that were published to InfraWorks using the Parts Editor.
Roadway Design
Fixed an issue where converting multiple planning roads to component roads resulted in the converted component roads all being given the name of the road that was converted last.
Fixed an issue where the Select Bridge Style dialog was blank after selecting the ‘bridge’ style option in the Profile Optimization panel.

Known Issues

This document lists known issues for the current release of Autodesk InfraWorks and Add-Ins for Autodesk InfraWorks.

Civil Structures
Rotation and Pan navigation options are not available When the Send to Revit dialog is active in your InfraWorks model.
If warnings appear in Autodesk Revit after using the Send to Revit command to bring an InfraWorks bridge into Revit, the corresponding warning dialog boxes in InfraWorks do not display the Revit-based error messages.
InfraWorks will close unexpectedly if you select a Generic Object that is located on a terrain layer in your InfraWorks model, then also select a tunnel and use the Send to Revit command to send a tunnel to Autodesk Revit.
Some of the bearing assembly height rendered dimensions are not correct for parametric bearings in the Revit properties panel, when they have been brought into Revit from InfraWorks using the Send to Revit command.
The German language version of Autodesk Revit incorrectly displays the pier diaphragm width property in the Revit properties window in English(US) when the pier was sent to Revit from Autodesk InfraWorks.
Roadway Design
Creating a right of Way using the parallel drawing option (select the ‘Parallel Drawing’ option from the ‘Create’ dropdown list on the Create Right of Ways panel) will create invalid self-intersecting geometry.
When horizontal and vertical road alignments are different lengths, station annotations may rotate around an anchor point at zero elevation where there is no vertical alignment under part of the road, causing unexpected behavior.
