    For this edition of our Have You Tried series, let’s take a closer look at the Linear Feature Extraction workflow in InfraWorks.  Extraction of linear information such as breaklines, edges, building footprints, and property boundaries from point clouds or other data can be very valuable when performing conceptual design and detailed design.   The Linear Feature Extraction in InfraWorks allows users to quickly extract line or linear features from an InfraWorks terrain , incorporate them into their InfraWorks model, and export them for use in other products like Civil 3D.   […]

    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 […]
