Autoturn for Autodesk Revit by Transoft Solutions

Vehicle Swept Path Analysis Software for the Architectural Community

Autoturn for Autodesk Revit delivers an easy-to-use vehicle swept path analysis tool for Revit users, allowing architects and other design professionals to perform simple turning maneuvers within the Autodesk Revit environment.

Whether it’s constructing a warehouse, designing a commercial/retail space or laying out a parking lot, architects now have software solution to check and verify clearances for vehicles that have to access the site. Without the need to outsource these checks – architects gain a better return on investment and save both time and money.

AutoTURN for Autodesk Revit gives Revit users instant access to the intelligence, database and experience in AutoTURN – the leading CAD software of its kind used by transportation engineers and planners worldwide. With an extensive vehicle libraries and the key design checking functionality, architects can deploy a swept path analysis and vehicle simulation tool that offers the built-in convenience of checking their designs for vehicle spatial requirements in just minutes.

Autoturn for Autodesk Revit Key Features and Benefits:

  • Produce forward and reverse vehicle turning simulations and swept path analysis all within the Autodesk® Revit® environment. Simply select a design vehicle and determine if the swept path will conflict with elements within the site plan.
  • Maintain the project and the simulations integrated to work within the same platform, saving time and money
  • Simulate vehicle maneuvers and choose specific key parts to be drawn within the simulation to show in plan reviews.
  • Vehicle libraries for different regions including: AASHTO 2011, 2004 and 2001, Alberta Infrastructure, Highway Geometric Design Guide, along with Europe, Brazil, Australia and Oceania.

PERFORM FORWARD SIMULATIONS
If the site plan only requires simulating a forward vehcle movement, AutoTURN for Autodesk® Revit® accurately simulates how the vehicle will behave as it navigates a turn reflected in the plan.

CARRY OUT REVERSE SIMULATIONS
AutoTURN for Autodesk® Revit® shows the vehicle swept path and demonstrates the path where the wheels, centerline and frame take as the design vehicle completes the maneuver.
