Urbano Visio trial

Win64, English

Smart tools for Civil 3D pipe networks, with productivity features for the design & editing of plans and profile views, quick hydraulic and trench volume calculations and custom data analyses.

General Usage Instructions

Urbano Visio works on both Imperial and Metric Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® templates.
It uses the part list that is currently in use, it does not install any part lists!
All functions are performed using Civil 3D objects and functions.
The .dwg file edited with Urbano Visio cannot be distinguished from a standard Civil 3D file. It can be used with any Civil 3D, without restrictions, even if Urbano Visio is not installed.

Urbano Visio is available for Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2015 – 2018
