Autodesk Photo on Recap360 Use of a drone

Autodesk Photo on Recap360 Use of a drone

As you might have noticed from some posts and the twitter feed that my new interest is around the capture of photographs to create a 3D model/scan.

Especially using a UAV type device to get in the air and capture areas that are out of the line of sight from standing on the ground with your camera.

Here is a short video on the process of using a UAV device, taking the images into Photo on Recap360 and using the output in AutoCAD Civil 3D, InfraWorks and Revit.

InfraWorks 360 Model Builder Preview goes Global!

InfraWorks 360 Model Builder Preview goes Global!

Need to get a model fast and don’t have any data (especially imagery)

Then the model builder preview is here to help.

Based on 150 sq meters the datasets consist of :

 

“Terrain data for the United States and its territories uses USGS 10- and 30 metre DEMs from the National Elevation Dataset (NED). The rest of the globe (between -60° and +60° latitude) uses SRTM 90m DEM data, processed by CIAT-CSI

“Satellite imagery from Microsoft® Bing Maps is draped over the model terrain.”

“OpenStreetMap's Highway and Railway datasets are readily available. They'll be used to create roads and railway features in the model.”

“The building data is also from the OpenStreetMap dataset”

Within about 15 minutes I get this.

In most cases you probably just need some context to the area of interest that you are wanting to work on, so it can give you a flying start and the chance to swap with higher quality data as you need it.

Happy model building !

InfraWorks360 British English is back

InfraWorks360 British English is back

To keep consistency with AutoCAD Civil 3D and that with especially the civil aspect of this product we want to have suitable local language support.

This July’s release of InfraWorks 360 we have integrated the Queens English (or my version of it)

To enable it, all you have to do is open the ‘Application Options’, choose English – United Kingdom and then restart the product

Then you might notice some nice changes in the product wording

InfraWorks 360 2015 July Update Release

usa.autodesk.com - 04/07/2014 - 19:08
InfraWorks 360 2015 July Update Release

On July 3, Autodesk released an update to Autodesk® InfraWorks™ 2015 software and Autodesk® InfraWorks 360TM software that also provides enhancements to the Roadway Design and Bridge Design vertical applications.

The update provides enhancements to InfraWorks 360 that include faster proposal switching, and streamlined web and mobile model synchronisation.

Roadway Design for InfraWorks 360 customers will appreciate new features that enable the automated conversion of GIS roads to design roads, the addition of left-hand driving support and new standards-driven pavement marking.

The update gives Bridge Design for InfraWorks 360 customers the ability to explore a wider range of precast concrete bridge concepts that reflect local construction practices with quantities accurately reflected.

The update will be available to InfraWorks and InfraWorks 360 Subscription customers via the Subscription Centre under Product Enhancements. Look for Release 2 which is labelled 2015.2. There is no need to uninstall and reinstall your current software; for people running both InfraWorks as part of a Design Suite and InfraWorks 360, you’ll want to run the update for both InfraWorks and InfraWorks 360. For folks with Roadway Design for InfraWorks 360 and Bridge Design for InfraWorks 360 entitlements, all that is required is to update your InfraWorks 360 software.

Along with the updates to existing offerings, Autodesk® Drainage Design for InfraWorks 360TM launched on July 3. Just like Roadway Design and Bridge Design, Drainage Design for InfraWorks 360 is a separate offering that requires you to have a license of InfraWorks 360. This new offering helps civil engineers accelerate design and analysis of drainage associated with roadway design. The drainage design solution takes advantage of the robust, data-rich model created in InfraWorks 360, built-in design standards, and the computing power of the cloud, to automate processes, help improve design accuracy and better understand the drainage impacts of road design alternatives in less time.
