For InfraWorks 2014 R2, we have moved translation and processing of two
complex files types, Revit (RVT) and CityGML, to the secure Autodesk cloud
environment. What this means is that in order to import RVT and CityGML
files directly into InfraWorks 2014 R2 you must be connected to the internet
and signed into InfraWorks using your Autodesk 360 credentials. It is also
important to note that we DO NOT store your files in the cloud for any extended
period of time. Instead, using HTTPS we upload RVT and CityGML files for
the translation, whereupon we delete these files once the translation has been
completed. The entire process is transient and secure.
This exciting advancement not only speeds up translation time by using
the power of the cloud, it also means that InfraWorks uses less disk drive
storage and memory. Furthermore, you no longer need to have a local copy
of Autodesk Revit installed on the same machine as InfraWorks.
Go ahead and test it! Valuable feedback is welcome!
