With quarterly releases, InfraWorks 360 remains one of the most actively developed applications in Autodesk’s product portfolio. This week marked the fourth release of the 2016 cycle, and like earlier releases – there’s plenty to be excited about! Some of the new features you will find in this new release includes:
- Raster Overlays
- Improved Cloud Model Management
- Model Builder Updates
- More Responsive Modeling Options
- Advanced Intersection Modeling: Acceleration & deceleration ramps, Center Turn Lanes, and more!
- Expanded Drainage Calculation Options
- AND MORE!!!
These new features certainly make InfraWorks 360 2016.4 anything but a lackluster release. As incredible as these new features are, they are not my favorite part of this update. So what is my favorite part of this release? The dramatically simplified licensing options.
Licensing typically isn’t anything to get excited about, but this one time I’ll take exception.
Before this week, gaining access to everything InfraWorks 360 had to offer required four separate licenses. You had to purchase InfraWorks 360, and then licenses for each of the three advanced design modules (Roadway, Bridge, and Drainage).
Starting this week, when you purchase InfraWorks 360 you will also receive all of the advanced design modules at no additional charge. InfraWorks 360 is now a single price for the entire tool set. You no longer have to purchase individual design modules on top of your InfraWorks 360 purchase. And even though Autodesk has combined four licenses into just one license, the price for InfraWorks 360 has gone down (not up)!
