Autodesk, a provider of 2D and 3D design software, has announced that the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, WisDOT will implement AutoCAD Civil 3D software to produce new roadway designs more efficiently and cost effectively.
AutoCAD Civil 3D addresses WisDOT’s need for a fully integrated and easy-to-use 3-D transportation design solution as they transition from legacy software. This decision was made after a thorough, 18-month evaluation of alternative technologies.
Using AutoCAD Civil 3D software, WisDOT can automate much of the roadway design and documentation process with powerful 3-D information models. These models also allow WisDOT the ability to provide contractors with 3-D proposed surfaces for driving machine control grading projects, saving time and money during construction.
AutoCAD Civil 3D software allows WisDOT’s civil engineers, designers, drafters and surveyors parallel access to the same up-to-date model, regardless of location. The software’s styles-based drafting means WisDOT can quickly implement design changes and maintain coordinated, reliable information about a project.
Autodesk’s transportation solutions offer state and local governments the ability to better design and construct infrastructure projects to meet community needs. Through an integrated workflow built on coordinated, reliable information, Autodesk solutions enable transportation departments to easily create and share digital design information and documentation; use that information to accurately visualize, simulate, and analyze performance and cost; and reliably deliver their projects faster and more economically.
