Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler & AutoCAD Utility Design

August 10, 2011

Autodesk, Inc. announced Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler 2012 software for conceptual design and AutoCAD Utility Design 2012 software for electric utility design, two new additions to the Autodesk Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Infrastructure portfolio for planning, designing, building, and managing more sustainable infrastructure. These new products complement the Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2012, to help industry professionals increase efficiency and remove waste from their processes.

Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler 2012 is conceptual design software that helps GIS, planning, and civil engineering professionals evaluate future infrastructure in the context of what already exists by quickly creating, evaluating and communicating project proposals. AutoCAD Utility Design 2012 is model-based design software that helps deliver the power of BIM to utility designers and engineers, so they can design, analyze, and deliver more productive and consistent electric distribution designs.

“Engineers and owners developing infrastructure projects are facing unprecedented challenges-lower project funding, design complexity, economic uncertainty and public resistance to major infrastructure projects. Expanding our Building Information Modeling solutions for infrastructure can help our customers in transportation, water, energy, and land development segments to overcome these challenges-saving time and money and improving margins on projects,” said Paul McRoberts, vice president, infrastructure product line group, AEC solutions, Autodesk.
