The latest versions of IMAGINiT Utilities for Autodesk Revit 2018 and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 are designed to improve the efficiency of the design process with an upgraded tool set. 

Bill Zavadil, senior vice president, IMAGINiT Professional Services, said that the new upgrades will improve the efficiency and value-add of the design process for architecture, engineering and construction professionals by helping them to better deal with commonplace work tasks.

“Over 6,000 organizations in the U.S. and Canada rely on utilities from IMAGINiT Technologies to reduce time-consuming and redundant tasks, which instead allows them to focus on high-value activities.”

The addition of two new features to IMAGINiT Utilities for AutoCAD Civil 3D provides users with nine key tools to help expedite the design work flows of infrastructure projects.

The new Pipe Elevation Adjustment tool enables users to lift or lower pipe segments during the utilities design process.

The Style Renamer seeks to improve the organization of workflows by providing a function for searching, finding and changing the names of the styles contained within AutoCAD Civil 3D drawings or templates.

The new feature also allows prefixes or suffixes to be added to style names, which lets users include more information in titles for organizational purposes. 

IMAGINiT Utilities for Autodesk Revit now contains over 20 tools that can help facilitate the high-level design process for BIM coordinators by making it easier for them to deal with time-consuming minutiae. 

Core new tools in the latest update include a Legend View creation function, which automates the creation of legend views for project components, as well as Room Contents Import, which rapidly gathers together all the components needed for a given room and brings them into the Revit environment.

Both IMAGINiT Utilities for Autodesk Revit and IMAGINiT Utilities for AutoCAD Civil 3D are available free of charge to annual subscribers of Autodesk products by means of IMAGINiT, and can be accessed via the IMAGINiT ProductivityNOW Portal.

Those who are not yet IMAGINiT customers but who wish to use the software can purchase it directly from the IMAGINiT.com e-store.
