9:00am – 4:30pm EST
1 Day
Basic understanding of 3D concepts, with intermediate computer and Windows experience
Who Can Benefit From This Class: 
Civil engineering and planning professionals who want to learn how to use visual storytelling tools to accelerate and better communicate the conceptual design process

This class introduces the model-based conceptual design and planning tools within InfraWorks™.  During this handson, project-based training experience, you will learn to establish 3D models of both existing and proposed conditions using a combination of data sources including GIS shape files, aerial imagery, and data from both AutoCAD® Civil 3D® and Revit®.  Along with managing multiple proposals while creating and optimizing conceptual roadway designs, you’ll also learn to use InfraWorks™ as a visual storytelling tool.
