Autodesk InfraWorks is the geospatial and engineering BIM platform that enables parametric model-­based planning and design of civil infrastructure in the context of the real-­world. With InfraWorks users can more easily evaluate and convey design intent within the context of a project’s surroundings; data can be aggregated from various sources and design decisions made earlier in the project lifecycle;; then, the design model can be moved downstream to AutoCAD Civil 3D for detailed design and construction documentation with minimal loss of critical information – improving decision making, project stakeholder buy-­in, and saving both time and money.


InfraWorks software features—including automated 3D model building, cloud technology, and specialized features for road, bridge, and drainage—help civil engineers plan and design transportation infrastructure.

Early-stage design

  • Unit configuration – Assign different units and precision settings.
  • Component roads – Build roads with curbs, lanes, and shoulders.
  • Expanded roadside grading capabilities – Slopes and materials for each side of the road.
  • Superelevation – Calculate and apply superelevation to road designs.
  • Smarter pavement drainage – Recognizes and responds to the complex geometry.
  • Model Legal Boundaries – Draw and stylize rights-of-way, parcels, and easements in your model
  • Component-Based Bridge Design – Edit bridge decks and girders independently of other bridge components.
  • Intuitive user experience – Experience a persona-based interface.
  • Sketching and layout capabilities – Add roads, bridges, and buildings to your model.
  • Quickly create multiple proposals – Better predict performance of design alternatives.
  • Advanced capabilities – Extend capabilities for roadway, bridge, and drainage.

Cloud collaboration

  • Generate features from point clouds – Recognize features and convert them to components.
  • Automated data import and model creation – Build models from data-rich global content sources.
  • Point cloud enhancements – Import and manage point clouds more easily.
  • Model the existing environment – Use visuals to inform decision making and buy-in.
  • Import data and combine models – Create base models from GIS, Raster, DGN, and SketchUp.


  • View terrain contours – Display contour lines for Area of Interest features.
  • Cross Section View of roads and intersections – Inspect superelevation through critical stations.
  • Section-based earthwork quantities – View cut and fill volumes for component roads.
  • Bridge line girder analysis – Perform a detailed analysis in the cloud.
  • Flood simulation – Model flooding with Hydronia Riverflow 2D.
  • Dynamic site analysis – Work with different data types from many sources.
  • Measure distances and areas – Determine best location for design elements.
  • Shadow and lighting analysis – Predict how shadows may affect project designs.
  • Theme palettes – Visually classify assets according to attributes.

Data exchange

  • Migrate roads and pipe networks to Civil 3D – Import preliminary designs into Civil 3D.
  • Import detailed Civil 3D objects into InfraWorks 360 – Import Civil 3D complex horizontal and vertical geometry.
  • Use data and models from Autodesk products – Use data from Revit, Civil 3D, Map 3D, and more.
  • Export capabilities – Migrate data to a variety of design solutions.
  • 3D Collada models with animation – Import stationary models with moving parts.
