What’s New in Autodesk InfraWorks 360 2018.1

Powerful planning and design platform that enables engineers to quickly and easily convey preliminary design intent in a real-world, contextual environment, increasing stakeholder buy-in and team decision-making. It leverages automated, rich 3D model building capability with web-based technology and vertically-specialized functionality to provide infrastructure engineers with the industry’s most compelling conceptual design tool.

InfraWorks 360 20118 features:
– Enable stakeholders to confidenty envision the full potential of a project.
– Create a competitive distinction to win more work.
– Empower teams to make decisions where and when needed.
– Save time and money through automated integration of data from multiple sources.
Users enjoy InfraWorks 360 because they can:
– Quickly and easily convey preliminary design intent in a real-world contextual environment.
– Effortlessly communicate and collaborate with internal and external stakeholders across the project lifecycle.
– Efficiently access and integrate data from multiple sources into a highly accurate model.

InfraWorks 360 includes tools for conceptual, bridge, roadway and drainage design. Autodesk helps people imagine, design and create a better world. Everyone—from design professionals, engineers and architects to digital artists, students and hobbyists—uses Autodesk software to unlock their creativity and solve important challenges.

Preliminary design software for civil infrastructure

Use InfraWorks® to create context and then model, analyze, and visualize your design along with project stakeholders. Learn about InfraWorks data aggregation, modeling, design, simulation, analysis, and visualization features.


Calculate and apply superelevation to any component roads in your model that have curves or spiral-curve-spirals.

Roadside grading

Vary the slopes and the materials applied to different sections of roadside grading.

Cross-section views

Assess superelevation, road assembly, and cut-and-fill engineering details of your road design in cross-section form.

Terrain contours

See more detail in existing and proposed ground surfaces by displaying contours and controlling the interval.

Manage bridge components

Create and manage bridge components and content directly in InfraWorks.

Flood simulation

Analyze flooding projects based on multiple inflow locations and water elevation changes over time.

Material quantities

Calculate earthwork quantities on multiple selected roads, a station range, area of interest parcel, or right of way.

Component roads

Design roads with curbs, lanes, and shoulders. Create parametric models in Inventor and add them to the component road design.

Parts Editor

Create custom drainage or piping parts with Inventor and export them to the Parts Editor using a free Inventor plug-in.

Labels for component roads

View in-canvas labels of bridge and bridge component dimensions depending on your selection and view position.

Generate features from point clouds

Extract linear features from point clouds. Export linear features, vertical features, and ground grid to Civil 3D.

Labels for bridges

View in-canvas labels of component roads depending on your selection and view position.

Model existing environment

Create a large-scale model by aggregating existing data including 2D CAD, GIS, raster, and 3D models

Automated data import and model creation

Create base models from GIS, Raster, DGN, and SketchUp.

Photorealistic visual effects

Add dynamic sun and shadows, water, and clouds.

Generate terrain from point clouds

Build data into your model terrain.

View projects in context

View projects in context of existing conditions.

Bridge design configurations

Copy bridge design configurations from one component to another, and from one bridge to another.
