Project Explorer & River and Flood Analysis | Autodesk Civil 3D Add-ons

Our Consulting and Services Manager, Shawn Herring, wrote an article for this month's issue of AUGI World. Below is a portion of the article:

It’s always interesting to see all the add-ons to Civil 3D that bridge the gaps on what out-of-the-box software can do and what is really needed to pull off projects - especially on the civil side of things.  There are so many different sectors and sub-sectors of civil engineering and the project types are endless.

For this article, I reached out to my awesome network on LinkedIn to get an idea of what add-ons they use that are out there on the market.  There are literally thousands of add-ons so I narrowed it down to a few.  It was kind of like choosing your favorite child…..which in my case is easy because it's Addison!  She is my favorite, and here are a few of my favorite add-ons for Autodesk Civil 3D!

Project Explorer

So this may not be considered a 3rd party add-on since Autodesk just acquired it on May 11, 2020, but this tool is going to be freaking awesome!  This is not a new tool to the market, this came from 3AM Solutions and has matured into a great addition to the software.  I’m sure you’ll being seeing more info from Autodesk soon, but I wanted to get this on your radar as something to look forward to.


River and Flood Analysis

Also not a 3rd party, but the River and Flood Analysis tool is an often overlooked piece of software that the majority of you already own.  This is a river modeling software package that supports HEC-RAS within the Autodesk Civil 3D environment. The Autodesk River & Flood Analysis module makes it easier than ever before to compute water surface profiles for modeling rivers, bridges, culverts, spillways, levees, floodplain and floodway delineations, stream diversions, channel improvements, and split flows.
