      Model and analyze rail projects efficiently

      Speed the planning, design, and delivery of transit stations and rail networks.

      Rail design

      What you can do with Civil 3D

      • Video: Silent screencast showing use of the Alignment Layout tool palette on a drawing of a rail yard and station

        Alignments and profiles

        Use rail alignments to create rail lines with common stationing based on specified tolerances that adjust with changes to parent rail alignment geometry, profile, and cant. (video: 1:46 min.)

      • Drawing of rail station with draw turnout tool palette open

        Special trackwork design

        Design turnouts for branching alignments and crossover switches connecting parallel alignments based on a library of turnout and crossover types that you can edit, delete, or supplement.

      • Video: Silent screencast that shows the tools for building a track corridor in the Civil 3D user interface

        Corridor modeling

        Build 3D track corridor models including alignments, profiles, and assemblies. Incorporate designs for switches, turnouts, platforms, and calculations for cant. (video: 54 sec.)

      • Video: Silent screencast that shows the tools for designing platform edges in the Civil 3D user interface

        Platform edge design

        Design platform edges for light or heavy rail using single or dual platform subassemblies with a dynamically updating platform edge running along a track. (video: 1:01 min.)

      • Video: Silent screencast that shows the design automation tools available in the Civil 3D user interface

        Design Automation

        Use visual programming to generate scripts that automate repetitive and complex tasks including electrification, signaling, and other system elements. (video: 2:42 min.)

      Workflows and use cases

      • Video: Optimize and enhance the rail design process using the tools in the AEC Collection

        Civil 3D + ReCap Pro + InfraWorks + Revit

        Establish context and perform conceptual and detailed designs of horizontal and vertical structures. (video: 2:18 min.)

      • Partially rendered model of aerodynamically shaped high-speed train on ground floor of large terminal building

        Trends in the future of rail

        High-speed rail, VR, mobility simulation, and other trends are affecting the future of rail design.
