How to Use InfraWorks iPad App to View and Comment on Scenarios
InfraWorks is a software that allows you to create and visualize 3D models of infrastructure projects. You can also publish scenarios, which are presentation packages featuring all or part of a model, to the cloud and share them with others. One way to view and comment on cloud-published scenarios is by using the InfraWorks iPad app.
In this article, we will show you how to use the InfraWorks iPad app to access, navigate, and interact with scenarios on your iPad.
What You Need
An iPad with iOS 8 or later.
The InfraWorks iPad app, which you can download from the Apple iTunes App Store for free. You do not have to be an InfraWorks user to use the mobile app.
An Autodesk 360 account. You can create one from the Autodesk website if you do not have one.
An invitation from an InfraWorks design group member to view a scenario. The design group member must turn on Public Access from the scenario asset card and send you an invitation link. Alternatively, you can view scenarios within your own design group if you are an InfraWorks user.
How to View a Scenario
Open the InfraWorks iPad app and sign in with your Autodesk 360 account.
Tap on the invitation link that you received from the design group member. This will open the scenario in the app. You can also browse and select scenarios from the list of available scenarios in the app.
Tap on the name of the scenario to see more details, such as description, date, and author.
Tap on the play button to view a storyboard, which is a visual tour of key parts of a model. You can also swipe left or right to switch between different storyboards published with the scenario.
Tap on the screen to hide or show the navigation controls. You can use gestures to navigate within the scenario, such as pinching to zoom in or out, dragging to pan, and rotating to change direction.
Tap on the layers icon to turn display layers on or off. You can choose which features of the model you want to see, such as roads, buildings, trees, etc.
Tap on the settings icon to change app settings, such as language, units, and augmented reality. Augmented reality is a feature that enhances the realism of a scenario by overlaying it on a real-world view from your iPad camera.
How to Comment on a Scenario
Tap on the Design Feed icon to see comments posted by other viewers or design group members. You can also post your own comments or reply to existing ones.
To post a comment, tap on the plus icon and type your message. You can also attach a photo or a screenshot of the scenario.
To reply to a comment, tap on the comment and then tap on the reply icon. Type your message and tap on send.
To delete a comment or a reply, swipe left on it and tap on delete.
The InfraWorks iPad app is a useful tool for viewing and commenting on cloud-published scenarios created by InfraWorks users. You can access scenarios from your own design group or from invitations sent by other design group members. You can also navigate within scenarios, view storyboards, turn display layers on or off, and use augmented reality to enhance your experience. The app also supports Design Feed for posting comments and replies, which can help you collaborate with others and provide feedback on scenarios. aa16f39245
