OBJECTIVE OF COURSE
The primary objective of this course is to teach students the essentials of conceptual design and visualization using Autodesk Infraworks.
Students learn how to use Autodesk Infraworks preliminary & conceptual design software to create to visually rich proposals for site, area planning & infrastructure projects. This course offers a hands-on exercise representing a real-world design scenario
During the course delegates will cover:
Model existing infrastructure – Use 2D CAD, GIS, Building Information Modeling (BIM), and raster data.
Use Model Builder – Create base models using public data from Bing Maps, StreetMAP & SRTM 90m DEM data
Import detailed models – Incorporate detailed models from AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, AutoCAD® Map 3D, and other software.
Stylize infrastructure models – Depict the local environment more realistically.
Work in 3D – Show proposed roads, water, and land features.
Overlay GIS data – Create 3D thematic maps to help inform decisions.
Manage infrastructure proposals – Create and manage multiple alternatives in a single model.
Communicate visually rich infrastructure proposals – Shift between design proposals and evaluate alternatives from any viewpoint, and capture rendered images or recorded videos
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Technicians, architects, planners & engineers who undertake primary design and wish to create conceptual 3D models and visualisations for site, area planning & infrastructure projects. All elements of the course except Model Builder are appropriate for Infraworks in Infrastructure Design Site users. Model Builder requires Infraworks 360.
Students should have a working knowledge of a CAD application such as AutoCAD and of Microsoft® Windows® Vista, XP, 7 or 8.
