"La perfección para diseño de infraestructuras y piezas"

What do you like best?

Site3D es una aplicación muy fácil de usar e intuitiva a la vez. Gracias a esta aplicación soy muy productivo porque puedo dividir mis proyectos en distintas fracciones de tiempo. Lo mejor es que puedo hacer diseños rapida y fácilmente modificables por si me confundo al hacer algo o quiero retocarlo. Otro punto positivo es que al modificar un elemento del modelo en 3D el resto de los elementos se mueven y adaptan de manera automática. Me gusta que cuando pongo un elemento interactúa con otros y así sé cuales son sus efectos. Por último, me gusta que puedo ver los proyectos desde distintos puntos de vista en 3D y en vista de plano o aérea, permitiendo ver la alineación vertical de los elementos

What do you dislike?

Lo peor es que algunas de las herramientas y opciones que ofrece esta aplicación no están muy desarrolladas y pueden ser mejoradas. Tampoco me gusta que esta aplicación no soporte algunos formatos al guardar los proyectos. Los recursos que ofrece el sitio tampoco son útiles. El soporte técnico no es multi bilingüe por lo que cuesta comunicar el problema. Es un programa que para mí, me parece excesivamente caro para lo que ofrece comparado con otros programas del mismo tipo

Recommendations to others considering the product

No hace falta que utilices un ordenador de nueva generación para que funcione de manera rápida. Muy buena herramienta para ver arquitecturas y estructuras desde distintos puntos de vista. También muy útil para crear piezas. ¡Tienes que probar este fantástico programa !

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Me sirve para revisar de manera rápida y sencilla el diseño de los módelos. También me sirve para diseñar algunos planos en 3D añadiendo carreteras, pozos, montañas, lagos, ríos...

"Perfect for residential design, roundabouts are incredible!"

What do you like best?

The dynamic updating of roads/junctions saves so much time for us. Creating roundabout designs in Site3D is a dream compared to using other products available out there.

Site 3D is very intuitive and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Cut and Fill tools need to be expanded further so you can get into more detail but so far many of our suggestions have been taken on board and updates come out on a regular basis so i am sure it will keep getting better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Main benefit of the software for us is time. Layout updates have always been a big problem but as Site3D is so dynamic updating your design becomes a much less arduous task.

What Civil Engineering Design solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Design software specially tailored for road and infrastructure design."

What do you like best?

This is software that is specifically tailored for road and plot design, as well as the infrastructure for and around it. It is intuitive, easy to get up and running quickly, and can design a highway layout very quickly. The tangentials of the alignments - horizontal and vertical - are self checking and once one element is changed, it automatically updates the connecting elements.

What do you dislike?

Some tools can be improved, such as interfacing between the road and existing ground, and there are more features that can be added. I've been told these are being worked on so I expect more and more and better tools as this software is developed. The crashing problem has vastly improved and hasn't occurred to me for some time now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is definitely worth a try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

On site road design. Earthwork design such as ponds and landscaping. S278 road design: modifying existing roads including roundabouts, priority junctions and signal junctions. The benefits is it's speed and easy checking of the design.

"A new piece of software that is on its way to replace some of the established civil engineering soft"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use even if you have never used any highways design software before. Very quick with some design elements such as junctions and roundabouts.

What do you dislike?

There are some tools and features can can be improved: drop kerbs, cut and fill analysis etc. But more importantly, the lack of a "3D polyline" element. We should be able to draw a polygon and simply assign a level to each one of the points of the 3D polyline. The earthworks tool is tedious to use and sometimes it doesn't give the right answer.

The drainage tool can also be improved and its data updated to the latest revision of SfA.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Specially suited for the design of residential schemes and much quicker than other civil engineering design software.

"Civil design software that holds up against more established competitors"

What do you like best?

Site3D is easy to get to grips with, versatile and very forgiving if revisions are required to the model. The ability to view changes in output data, such as longitudinal sections and manhole schedules without having to manually regenerate them means that any problems or changes required can be resolved or performed quickly and efficiently. This is something that puts some competitor software to shame.

What do you dislike?

Whenever it crashed! Thankfully wasn't too often and the file recovery mechanism always allowed me to carry on where I left off.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When using Site3D in the past, it was for modelling of highways and drainage layouts to serve residential developments of varying scale. Having the ability to design both the highways and drainage networks within the software and being able to easily export drainage data into a drainage modelling software for testing such as WinDes was very useful.

"Site 3D Review"

What do you like best?

We appreciate how easy it is to test different designs and environmental conditions. This is a very important part of our safety assessment process and other software has not facilitated this process as well as Site 3D does.

What do you dislike?

It would b nice if it accepted more file types. We typically use DWG files and they need to be converted using another piece of software before they can be uploaded to Site 3D.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend for smaller companies very useful in tandem with any safety and environmental assesments

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simple to train engineers on site 3D as it is functionality similar to AutoCad (which many engineers lean in university). Also appreciate that a basic license is free.

"My Experience of Site3D"

What do you like best?

For me the best feature of Site3D is its ability to work so well with other software programmes vital to my design work such as AutoCAD and Microdrainage.

A microdrainage model can be created exactly as designed with a click of a mouse.

One or all elements of a model can be pushed to AutoCAD and converted in DWG format to effortlessly build engineering drawing packages, including fully customisable longsections.

What do you dislike?

Site3D does on occassion crash and get stuck in an infinite loop, however fortunately it has a handy autosave function which makes regular backups of your work so all is not lost.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Site3D intuative modelling tools and push/pull to AutoCAD feature rapdily speeds up design work and production of drawing packages saving our company countless hours of man hours.

"Site 3D - A must buy to assist the efficient delivery of projects"

What do you like best?

I like the dynamic capabilities offered.

What do you dislike?

It would be great to be able to customise the appearance of long sections and change the order or how information appears.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Download the trial version to get a feel for the software. It's relatively easy to pick up. There are plenty of help videos available on Youtube as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Site 3D has enabled us to deliver complex projects efficiently. The dynamic operation of the software is very useful and enables a large amount of information to be produced quickly.

"Road System and Housing development design software"

What do you like best?

I like how quick and accurate this software is. The design of housing and foot-ways seem like fluff but actually help to create a full visually understandable image. It also helps make the design look more professional and real.

What do you dislike?

The UI seems outdated, and the graphics are pretty basic. Although the functionality is there, this tool is only an engineer/ technicians tool as the finally product is not visually that appealing. AKA you will still have to hire a graphic designer if you want to show these designs to prospective buyers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This tool does what it is supposed to and doesn't crash that often. A good tool for the belt.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Planning out new subdivisions and where roads and sidewalks will be.

"Excellent civils design program"

What do you like best?

How quick it is to design a site from roads to drainage to earthworks and how its export functions to other programs saves huge amounts of time.

What do you dislike?

I wish that the constructions lines tools were in their own separate tab.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have created complex models of housing developments all within site3d. The fact that I can have the roads, sewers, structures and earthworks all in one model allows me to view the design from a comprehensive standpoint meaning any problems can be quickly identified and easily resolved.

"Not big in United States- local compatibility l"

What do you like best?

The simplistic interface is nice but not user efficient. The interface is not intuitive.

What do you dislike?

No one has this software in the US. Everyone is using Civil 3D so compatibility is an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use Civil 3D so you dont have to deal with compatibility in the United States

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
