During the ‘suites’ era, many companies upgraded from a single license of Civil 3D, or another vertical product, because the upgrade was offered for free. However, not many used the products offered in the suites.
Now that 2016 has come and gone, and so have the suites, we now have the Autodesk Collections. These Collections offer much more than the suites did.
This article will take you through a workflow for using your collection (or suite), to bring your Civil project from a bland, 2-dimensional visual to a realistic 3D animated model. You will need a good understanding of InfraWorks and Civil 3D in order to follow these instructions.
The software used for this workflow is Civil 3D, InfraWorks and Civil View, which is a plug-in inside of 3ds Max. You don’t have to be a 3ds Max expert to do this. You don’t even need to know how to use 3ds Max at all.
