BIM for Civil Infrastructure

Infrastructure projects have become more complex. Implementing BIM facilitates project team collaboration; reducing errors, increasing cost predictability, and improving understanding.

Road and highway construction projects require multi-layered solutions that meet a number of regulatory standards and deliverables. In order to meet environmental challenges, accommodate multiple engineering specialities, and resolve design clashes while keeping costs down, you need a workflow solution that delivers efficient collaboration.

Autodesk Civil 3D

Civil infrastructure design software

Built on the AutoCAD platform, the industry-leading software for 2D drafting and drawing production, Civil 3D provides users the ability to work with intelligent 3D models for the design of roads, highways, and railways.

Civil infrastructure professionals are provided with a dynamic, 3D model-based environment that streamlines design workflows, connects design to plans production, and supports BIM throughout the project lifecycle.

iDAS

Infrastructure Design Automation Suite

Devotech iDAS provides advanced features that fulfil the standards and requirements for the South African engineering industry including SABS 1200 and SANRAL.

iDAS builds on top of the Autodesk Civil 3D database, and allows you to share your design with other designers anywhere in the world on the Autodesk Civil 3D platform. 

Review and Report with Civil 3D & Project Explorer

Project Explorer provides users with an easy-to-use Civil 3D design model review tool and user-configurable report generator. Civil 3D users now have a more efficient way to access, interact, and share the staggering array of design information that is in a Civil 3D model.

Project teams can reduce overall design times, better manage project complexity, and leverage project resources more effectively. Collaboration across InfraWorks, Revit, and Civil 3D and other Autodesk tools,  brings architects and civil engineers together on a single project. 

Project Explorer:

Project Explorer is exclusive to the AEC Collection and can be accessed via the Civil 3D ribbon. Project Explorer provides users with an easy-to-use Civil 3D design model review tool and user-configurable report generator. Civil 3D users now have a more efficient way to access, interact, and share the staggering array of design information that is in a Civil 3D model. Project Explorer requires Civil 3D 2020 or later versions.

Bridge design workflow

Bringing together three design tools — Autodesk InfraWorks, Autodesk Civil 3D and Autodesk Revit — the bridge design workflow connects the road design, bridge design and documentations team in one project model. This applies to teams within one organization as well as in partner organizations. If your business often partners with others, you can still enjoy the collaboration benefits of the bridge design workflow.

If you’d like to find out more about how the workflow can help your business improve efficiency and collaboration, you can get free 30-day trials of Civil 3D, Revit, InfraWorks, and many more essential BIM tools included in the Autodesk AEC Collection.
