AI for Subdivision Design
Civil Site Design Plus with AI for subdivision design reduces the time it takes to lay out a subdivision road network from hours or days to just minutes.
With Project Assist, Civil Site Design Plus deduces your design intent based on how you name your alignments and learns as you make corrections.
With Civil Site Design alignments are created from polylines either individually or automatically from all polylines on a specified layer. Once created, you have full control of the alignment properties, display characteristics and documentation.
Templates Eliminate Assemblies
Templates provide an intuitive way to define your road, curb, sidewalks, pond elements and related grading strings. Civil Site Design provides a number of examples that can be easily configured to conform to your standards.
Automated Road Network Design
Once your alignments have been created, you can apply a template and generate the design for an entire subdivision with a single mouse click. You can also create all of your curb returns with a single mouse click saving you hours of time.
This time saving process creates an initial vertical design for each road, applies your default template and allows you to view plan, profile and cross-sections simultaneously. All are tied together so changing the vertical design of one road updates all of the connected profiles.
Interactive, Intuitive Design Tools
The interactive design tools allow you to simultaneously access multiple windows of your design. You can open multiple profile views including curb returns and observe changes as a profile is updated. Same with cross-section views.
The model viewer tool allows you to see the changes rendered in real time providing an intuitive perspective that helps experienced designers and greatly increases the productivity of new designers.
Real Time Interactive Visualization
The unique Model Viewer not only assists your design process with real time rendering and visualization, it has a number of powerful analysis tools including line of sight analysis and reporting, automated line marking which can be exported to your CAD drawing.
For those who want to render a design for visualization, you can extrude buildings, insert objects like street lights and vehicles and much more.
Simply using polylines and templates, the grading tools are great for modelling anything from basins, retaining walls, drains, and much more.
The Vertical Grading Editor or Grid View can be used to manage the vertical design, whilst the horizontal geometry can be simply grip edited with real time updates in the drawing & model viewer.
The pipe design module allows you to easily layout your design with simple polylines, will assign pipes and structures and will generate your network automatically.
The CSD pipe designer, provides a powerful interface that displays pipes in relationship to the ground surface. Pipes are designed automatically based on minimum slope and design flows. Obstructions from other utilities are displayed and color coated based on minimum clearances.
Incoming pipes are also displayed and will control the manhole invert where appropriate.
