Comprehensive model-based easy to use design

Design toolset for engineers to effectively design all aspects of modern roads and railways, covering all design disciplines for infrastructure.

Constructability built in from the start

With Novapoint you can efficiently build complex models and share your models to be used in the construction phase and closing the traditional gap between office and field.

  • Daylight surfaces with break lines, road superstructure, incl. deep blasting and soft spot removal
  • 3D Manholes with stakeout point and lines, pipes, and ditch surfaces with material layers
  • Road Sign plates ready for manufacturing
  • 3D road marking with detailed material attribution
  • Tunnel geology registration during construction

Real-world visualization as-you-design

With Novapoint’s deep integration to Quadri, your design is continuously visualized in a virtual real-world environment, and there’s no need for an additional visualization tool.

  • Design and visualize as one integrated workflow
  • Experience the visually pleasant expression of the 3D view, supporting trees, water, sky, traffic signs, buildings, etc.
  • Terrain texturing from orthophotos or WMS
  • New design is always visible by the automated blending of corresponding existing terrain areas

Information views from a shared model

The Novapoint domain modules integration to Quadri provides an efficient platform for harvesting all types of information across all the domains. The information can be presented in multiple ways. View your model and get accurate takeoff across the complete model

  • 3D view
  • Visualizer view
  • Long section view
  • Cross section view
  • Plan view
  • Properties view

Data Integrations

Integrated Software

Novapoint is fully integrated with Quadri in a bidirectional workflow.

Import/ Export

Share your designs and model data with others. Novapoint provides a complete set of possibilities to get stakeout, quantities, scheduling, and export to different export format e.g. IFC, LandXML, Open DWG/DGN.

Facilitated by Leading Software Connection

Most of the integration between Novapoint and other solutions is through Quadri. Example: Novapoint Road produces a road model that is sent to Quadri. Tekla Structures, Tilos, etc. can get this road model from Quadri.

One of the reasons for getting very few errors and mistakes is that all design has been done in 3D, with conflict control for all disciplines. That gives us good control and excellent work progress.
