AutoTURN Professional 3D is state-of-the-art software for simulating 3D vehicle turning manoeuvres on surface and mesh object terrains.
It incorporates the trusted AutoTURN software, with an added patent-pending 3D feature, allowing engineers, architects and drafters to account for the effects of varying terrain, obstacles and differing parameters.
AutoTURN provides me with the necessary tools to analyse the layout options with the various design vehicles that need to access the site.
Model 3D Vehicle Swept Paths
Generate 3D swept path envelopes with vehicle height and ground clearances to analyse designs in a three-dimensional space. Users also have the options to display the 3D swept path of the vehicle body or body clearance.
Analyse Vehicle Punch Through
Assess the cross-section of the 3D swept path at any instance along a 3D simulation. A punch through report can also be created and placed onto the drawing showing the 3D swept path cross-sectional, the terrain surface, and the punch through line.
Convert 2D Simulation into 3D
Easily convert a 2D simulation into 3D by selecting a terrain for the vehicle to interact with. This feature allows you to complete a conceptual design in a 2D plan view while allowing for further analysis in a 3D mode.
Reverse Three Part Vehicles
Reverse vehicles with 3 parts to any possible vector. Specialized transport systems can also perform straight line reverse maneuvers (based on the last trailer).
More Options for Simulations
With AutoTURN, you can now force a straight line simulation for a vehicle traveling along an arc path. This gives you more options for performing different maneuvers (i.e. lane changes) together in a single and longer vehicle simulation.
Generate 3D Arc Paths
Design, analyse, and visualise in three dimensions by generating a 3D arc path directly on a selected terrain (Civil 3D surface, polygon and polyface mesh in AutoCAD and MicroStation).
Dynamic 3D Vehicle Conflict Analysis
Carry out a conflict analysis to detect where geometric objects in a design drawing can interfere with the vehicles 3D swept path. The section of a 3D swept path will display in a different color indicating collisions with objects or terrain.
Create and work with 3D Vehicles
Create a 3D vehicle using a pre-defined or customized roofline and ground clearance values for the front, rear, and wheelbase of a vehicle. Sample realistic vehicle models.
Conflict Analysis and Regenerate Simulation
Perform vehicle conflict analysis and receive real-time visual feedback on any simulation path obstructions. AutoTURN also comes with the ability to regenerate an existing simulation to account for conflicts that occur after path obstacles have been added, removed, or modified.
Independent Rear Steering
Generate complex vehicle simulations with standard or specialised transport vehicles including independent rear steering systems (crab steering for supported types included).
