Our team had a great experience at Autodesk University this year. Stephen Brockwell, Richard Horrocks and Kathleen Kewley were all present, as well as Dan Campbell, Graphics Planner from the City of Vancouver, who co-presented our session on Model Building in InfraWorks with ArcGIS. That presentation was a great opportunity for us to showcase some of the exciting new business- and customer-focused applications of this software, using real world data from Vancouver – here’s a quick peek at one demonstration we were able to share:
Our second session, Using Point Clouds and Large Datasets in InfraWorks, was also a great success, and highlighted the exciting direction that point cloud functionality is heading. Stay tuned for some closer looks at the recent work we’ve been doing with point clouds, and in the meantime, check out this demo from Philippe Leefsma using point clouds in the Autodesk Forge viewer:
And of course, AU is always a great time to catch up old friends, and make new ones! It’s a wonderful opportunity to plug into the community and learn about the exciting new projects everyone is working on – both within Autodesk and among independents who are making the most of Autodesk tools through innovation, integration and expanded functionality and application. This year had exceptional attendance, and we were able to get a great sense of some of the prospects that the community is most excited about – from ArcGIS integration, to the potential for new interoperability between Civil 3D, InfraWorks and Revit – not to mention the incredible speed with which BIM 360 is progressing.
We’re already looking forward to AU 2019 – but until then, you can check out our full-length presentation on Model Building in InfraWorks Using ArcGIS here – and stay tuned for closer looks at both our presentations coming soon!
