New Mexico Department of Transportation selects Autodesk software
Dec 26, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Autodesk, Inc. has announced that the New Mexico Department of Transportation, or NMDOT, will expand its use of Autodesk software to include Autodesk Building Information Modeling, or BIM, solutions for road and highway design projects statewide.
Autodesk BIM for infrastructure solutions now accessible to the DOT include AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 software, Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler 2013 software, Autodesk BIM 360 cloud services, Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2013 software, AutoCAD Raster Design 2013 software, and AutoCAD 2013 software. Many of these products are available as part of the Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2013.
Once fully deployed, the Autodesk BIM for infrastructure solutions will also aid in virtual construction, to allow for improved verification of construction methodologies; improved analysis; and simulations of construction sequencing to help manage existing traffic throughout the construction process.
The NMDOT also expects to employ the Autodesk BIM solutions to support Automated Machine Guidance (AMG) site preparation to help accelerate overall construction by minimizing survey labor time and machine fuel consumption costs.
The NMDOT plans to start training on the Autodesk BIM software in early 2013, with application on projects expected to begin in mid-2013.
"New Mexico's decision to standardize on Autodesk solutions adds them to a growing list of major US departments of transportation, such as Caltrans, that have made the move to Autodesk BIM for infrastructure solutions," said Lisa Campbell, Autodesk vice president of engineering and infrastructure.
"We're seeing rapidly expanding interest within the transportation community for the Autodesk BIM for infrastructure solutions, which help designers and civil engineers in both consulting firms and government agencies plan, design, build and manage more sustainable infrastructure."
