Are you looking to learn how to get started with InfoDrainage? We’ve created a series of videos for drainage design that is completely free and open to everyone. The course focuses on pipe design, simulation, and results analysis, with a special focus on representing SuDS.
If you’ve been a user of the legacy product MicroDrainage, you may feel right at home in InfoDrainage. In fact, if you still have old MicroDrainage models, you can import them into InfoDrainage. But you don’t have to bring anything to this course. Anyone new to drainage design can benefit from it and learn how to design and audit drainage systems quickly – from engineers to designers to developers and consultants
You can watch the course right here – or head over to YouTube and bookmark the playlist.
Download the course files
Before you begin the tutorials, you’ll want to download this folder of accompanying files. Then, set up a separate directory by uploading this “data” folder to your computer so you can follow along. This course was recorded using InfoDrainage 2021.5, but any recent version of the software should work just fine.
