Autodesk INFRAWORKS 360 - Preliminary engineering with data-rich 3D models

InfraWorks® 360 preliminary design software helps improve your project outcomes. Combine and connect data to better create, view, analyze, share, and manage information to make decisions in context.

Here’s how InfraWorks 360 can help you

From transportation to site planning and water analysis and design, InfraWorks 360 offers benefits in planning, preliminary engineering, design, and the management of your infrastructure projects.

1. More effective proposals
Improve public engagement, gather feedback, and help speed the approvals process by sharing near-realistic visualizations with a larger range of stakeholders in a more secure cloud environment

2. More optimal designs
Quickly generate and evaluate multiple design alternatives using data-rich models that more accurately present your design within the as-built environment.

3. Better collaboration
Collaborate more effectively with project teams and stakeholders by sharing cloud-based models of design scenarios, to gather feedback and input in real time.
