InfraWorks Roadmap Check In – October 2017 – Connected Workflows

Hopefully you’ve read my first two posts about planned improvements in the areas of the Design & Engineering Experience and Modeling & Analysis. Let’s look now at Connected Workflows.

Connected Workflows are about connecting people, data and processes so that civil infrastructure projects can be delivered efficiently. I mentioned a little earlier that our goal is to make InfraWorks better able to support detailed design; one of the ways we can do that is creating good workflows between InfraWorks and Civil 3D, or InfraWorks and Revit, so that models started in InfraWorks can be refined, completed and documented using tools like Civil 3D and Revit.

InfraWorks to Civil 3D – Roads. Teams are working on bringing a road model from InfraWorks to Civil 3D, so that it’s as this idea puts it, “it’s a corridor that’s ready to go to work.”

InfraWorks to Revit – Bridges. At the same time, the InfraWorks to Revit workflow, for modeling civil structures, will continue to be refined and improved.

Cloud Collaboration. InfraWorks has been cloud-connected solution for years. We have some exciting functionality being testing and previewed in the Rolling Sandbox.  There are also a couple of classes about it planned for AU Las Vegas this year: this one taught by product manager Peter Funk, and this one by Mark Kauffman, Technical Lead of Project Visualization WSP USA and  longtime member of our InfraWorks Customer Council. (Are you going to AU. If you are, I’d love to meet you.)

 

And with this third post, that’s it, the latest look at what the InfraWorks teams are up to over here. We’re sharing some of the highlights of our product development roadmap to give you a sense of the general direction InfraWorks is heading, but this update doesn’t reflect everything the development teams are working on.

 

Roadmap updates like this one are plans, not promises. We’re as excited as you to see new functionality make it into the products, but the development, release, and timing of any features or functionality remains at our sole discretion. Lastly, these roadmaps should not be used as the basis for purchasing decisions.

If you have questions about this update, feel free to email me directly and I’ll set up a time to chat with you. Now that there’s a new home for these updates on the community, I look forward to posting more frequent updates. Cheers!
