How it Works
CREATE NETWORKS IN JUST A FEW CLICKS
With the innovative infraWizard app, you can create pipe networks simply by converting AutoCAD entities into pipes, or by importing from other sources such as hydraulic modeling applications. Super flexible, infraWizard allows you to import data in several formats including Shapefiles, EPANET and EPASWMM files. Any missing data can be manually defined or calculated during the importing process.
STYLE YOUR PLANS FLAWLESSLY
Wish you could create plan styles that keep your plans as clear and informative as possible? infraWizard has you covered. With infraWizard, you’ll be able to add annotations to pipes and nodes to clearly show geometry information, such as size, invert levels, lengths and coordinates. Plus, take your plan styles even further by using AutoCAD layers, colors, line types and text styles to enrich your formatting.
QUICKLY CREATE STUNNING LONGITUDINAL PROFILES
Thanks to one of infraWizard’s most innovative features, you’ll be able to create first-class longitudinal profiles for pressure and gravity lines in no more than a few clicks. Choose profile elements on your screen, or simplify things even further by using the intelligent automatic selection feature, which will define your profile lines by following the node names or the network hierarchy. Get a single profile or a group of them created in seconds, fully formatted, with data bands and crossing pipes. Not a single touch needed before submission!
GET INTERFERENCE CHECKS INSTANTLY
One of infraWizard’s most powerful features, Crossing Points Check will automatically and instantly analyze every crossing point between two pipes and calculate the vertical clearance between them. Your crossing points will be annotated while you create, import and edit your pipes. With infraWizard, you’ll have full control over which crossings are annotated based on the clearance value and network combinations.
MAKE EDITING YOUR NETWORKS A BREEZE
infraWizard makes editing your pipe networks geometry easier than ever. All you need to do is double click on a pipe or a node and you can edit levels, sizes, materials and more. Work whichever way is best for you, using infraWizard’s intuitive editing tools as well as the standard AutoCAD commands. And even better still, you can also easily modify the properties of a group of elements all at once with the handy Group Edit feature.
EXPORT BIM MODELS AT BREAKNECK SPEED
Save yourself even more time and effort by exporting BIM models of networks in the form of 3D AutoCAD elements. This invaluable function will save all data to the BIM model and allow you to carry on editing in AutoCAD. Plus, you’ll be able to quickly and easily integrate your BIM model with other project components on BIM modeling applications, such as Autodesk Navisworks.
PLAY NICE WITH OTHER APPS
For ultimate flexibility, infraWizard offers interoperability with other applications used in utility networks design. This means you can exchange data in several formats including GIS shapefiles and native text files.
INSPECT CROSSINGS ON THE FLY
Get all crossing points between pipe networks analyzed on the fly. With infraWizard, you’ll pick every conflict once it exists, so you can move on in your design with no surprises!
FIND LOW & HIGH POINTS
infraWizard automatically detects low points and high points in a pressure pipe network and marks them for you in different colors. This handy function tells you where your air release and drain valves need to go.
PROFILE IT PERFECTLY
Style your longitudinal profiles to get fully informative fine-looking profiles ready for submission and save yourself hundreds of drafting hours. Use the intelligent automatic detection tool to create tons of profiles at a single click.
CHANGE WITH EASE
Use the smart editing tools in infraWizard to make changes to network geometry in seconds. You can Unify Slope through a pipeline, Split and Merge pipes, Add & Remove Vertices, and even make bulk changes with Group Editing.
GET A BIM IN SECONDS
Let infraWizard do the tough BIM job. Your 2D networks created with ease will
be converted into a full 3D model with accurate geometry and embedded data. One more step will get you an nwc file to integrate your model on Autodesk Navisworks.
INTEGRATE CIVIL 3D SURFACES
Install infraWizard on AutoCAD Civil 3D and associate Civil 3D surfaces with networks so that node ground levels are picked and ground lines are profiled from a surface
PREPARE QUANTITY TAKEOFFS
Preparing quantity takeoff sheets for your networks has never been faster or easier. All you need to do is export tabulated data of pipes and nodes from your project and you’re done.
REUSE PROJECT STYLES AND LIBRARIES
Why start from scratch when you can recycle your existing work? Export plan styles, profile styles and pipe libraries from one project to another and save yourself a ton of time and effort.
