SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler

BIM planning of bridges and tunnels in Autodesk® Revit®

The SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler is your powerful extension for Autodesk® Revit® for modelling axis-based, parametric bridge and infrastructure structures in 3D. Engineers benefit from the extensive functionalities for complete and efficient design planning in bridge and tunnel construction, especially in the early planning phases. The superior parametric technology in combination with our RAB-ING conformity and flexible exchange formats make the Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler your ideal BIM solution for safe, fast and open planning and modelling of bridges and tunnels in Revit®.

Functions at a glance

  • Consistent parametric model for axes, superstructure and substructure components, caps and railings, as well as for derived sections, views and lists
  • Derivation of quantities (quantities, lengths, areas, volumes) for mass determination
  • 3D modelling of all bridge types:
    z. e.g. plate girder bridges, also multi-span, box girder bridges, prefabricated bridges, arch bridges and truss bridges
  • Parametric generation of all superstructure and substructure components along a 3D bridge axis
  • Intelligent production of additional extension elements such as caps and railings
  • Automatic derivation of views, floor plan, unfolded longitudinal section and dimensioned cross-sections for a RAB-ING-compliant plan presentation
  • Update of the unrolled longitudinal section for model changes
  • Generation of 3D bridge axes from horizontal and vertical alignment elements, via the import of external axis data (e.g. Civil3D.LandXML) and from tables of point coordinates
  • Import of digital terrain models in LandXML format and simple generation of solids
  • Transfer of the most important bridge data to the SOFiSTiK calculation software
  • Generation of 3D bridge models from a SOFiSTiK FE model
