AutoTURN Pro 3D is state-of-the-art CAD software that simulates 3D vehicle turning maneuvers on surface and mesh object terrains. Incorporating the trusted AutoTURN engine together with the patent pending process of generating a three-dimensional vehicle swept path envelope – engineers, architects, and drafters can design and analyze in 3D while accounting for the effects of different terrain, obstacles, and vehicle parameters.
Going beyond simple vehicle swept path checking capabilities in a two-dimensional plane, AutoTURN Pro enters the realm of true 3D design and analysis. Engineers, architects, and drafters can confidently work on multifaceted projects and complex design situations in a 3D environment involving vertical and underside clearance checks, detection of obstacle collision, and traversing challenging terrains.
Every designer within an organization needs to have access to the same load and sightline specifications. With the new AutoTURN Pro 3D release, any updates to custom vehicles go to each network member automatically. Plus, this updated version features many new additional models in the vehicle libraries. As well, the new release includes the latest compatibility with Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2014 platforms and Windows® 8 operating systems.
With the growing use of BIM (Building Information Modeling) and VDC (Virtual Design and Construction) in today’s industry, more engineers are incorporating these principals for designing and creating visualization in a three-dimensional space.
Developed with these initiatives in mind, AutoTURN Pro 3D enables users to create and analyze vehicle swept path simulations in a 3D CAD environment. Together with the ability to illustrate vehicle spatial requirements for ground and overhead clearance in 3D – design conflicts and construction issues can be quickly identified at an early stage in the project when they are easier to resolve. AutoTURN Pro 3D can optimize roadway and site projects by:
AutoTURN was first developed in 1991 and set the standard for CAD software of its kind. Twenty years later, Transoft Solutions has once again pioneered a new path for the AEC industry to design and analyze vehicle simulations in 3D, providing even more realistic and reliable results than ever before.
Powerful 3D visual tool
See firsthand how a vehicle traverses a path in live-animated simulations - ideal for design confirmation and client presentations. vehicles through sharp curves, navigate complex site obstructions, test a new roundabout or simply turn through an intersection.
Get more work done in much less time. AutoTURN's interface and editing tools dramatically reduces the amount of frustrating trial and error efforts. Vehicle paths can be changed quickly and easily - simply select a point, click, drag, and release.
Set design standards
Incorporate guidelines for minimum turn radii, transition curves, superelevation, and lateral friction from accepted standards like the AASHTO 'Green Book' and be confident in your evaluations.
