InfraWorks 360, Get More for Less!

Have you considered purchasing InfraWorks 360 but thought to yourself, “Man, all this choosing modules things is just too confusing!”?

Northing Easy

Autodesk just announced a simplified approach to InfraWorks! You no longer have to choose which modules you want, you simply get them all!

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

When you purchase InfraWorks 360, you get InfraWorks, the Roadway, Drainage, and Bridge modules, all included!

But Wait

Now, I’m sure your thinking, “What is this going to cost me? It must be a LOT of money for all this added value!” and there, you would be wrong!

How much would you pay for this

Autodesk is actually REDUCING the cost for InfraWorks 360! That’s right, REDUCING!

Sorry for the infomercial themed post, I couldn’t resist. I just couldn’t help but think of Ron Popeil!

All kidding aside, here’s the real deal…

Autodesk has decided to simplify the purchasing, installing, and managing of InfraWorks 360. The modules are all now included in the base version of InfraWorks 360. If you currently have InfraWorks 360, all you have to do is download the latest version and you’ll have access to all the modules. Additionally, Autodesk is reducing the cost to access these tools.

If you have the version of InfraWorks that comes with one of the design suites (Infrastructure Design Suite Premium/Ultimate or Building Design Suite Ultimate), you won’t have access to these modules. Instead, you’ll get InfraWorks 360 LT (Limited Technology). InfraWorks LT doesn’t have the three modules, model builder, or the ability to sync to InfraWorks360.

The following table will give you an idea of what each version will provide. If you have InfraWorks 360 LT and need the something that’s not included, you’ll need to purchase InfraWorks 360.
