It always amazes me when lady coincidence collides in front of me. On the same day I had a client ask me about bridge design in Revit, I was later chatting to one of my colleagues about a non-related topic over lunch, when he mentioned he needed to get back to the class he was running…wait for it…. On bridge design in Revit.

Now whilst bridge design it not in my realm of expertise, I can at least explain the workflow in a blog.

To begin the process, we make use of Infraworks 360 (part of the Autodesk AEC Collection)

Use the Model Builder to find data layers and then build a model for an area you specify.

  • Global terrain data is available in 10- and 30 meter DEMs depending on the geographic location of your area of interest.
  • OpenStreetMap's Highway and Railway datasets are used to create roads and railways features in the model.
  • Buildings data comes from OpenStreetMap as well.
  • Microsoft ® Bing Maps imagery is draped over the model terrain.
  • bridge design revit infraworks terrain
