  • Have You Tried? InfraWorks Subsurface Terrain Layers

    In this edition of “Have You Tried”, we discuss a great feature in InfraWorks called subsurface terrain.   Civil infrastructure projects can be subject to change depending on the make-up of the surface on which they’re built. To better illustrate the thickness and density of their projects’ subsurface terrain, civil engineering professionals can use InfraWorks to add, view, and hide subterranean layers to their models. Adding subsurface terrain layers helps ensure safety and stability while avoiding future complications. Why use it?  The subsurface terrain feature is […]
