Engineering Smarter with Design-Time Costing
Earthwork usually represents a huge fraction of the total construction cost for roads, highways, and other corridor projects. Good engineering can significantly reduce these costs. That is why Softree has developed software tools to help designers in this area. Design-Time costing is one of these tools. This article talks about what Design-Time Costing does, and how it can allow you to engineer smarter.

Softree Optimal Plug-In for Civil 3D in Beta
The Softree Optimal plug-in for Civil 3D has arrived! Civil 3D users can now easily access the power of optimization within the environment they are used to, with a new and user-friendly interface. Optimization can reduce earthwork construction costs by 10-30% or more, depending on the project. With the new plug-in, Civil 3D users can achieve this reduction in cost with their native Civil 3D assemblies, alignments, and surfaces. Having access…

2016 Demo Conference & Associated Events
Softree will be presenting at COFE’s 108th Annual General Meeting, in association with the DEMO International Conference in Vancouver, BC this coming week. We will be speaking about the use of optimization technology in forestry road planning as a way of taking greater advantage of LiDAR data. Optimizing the alignment of a road using accurate topographical data allows engineers to determine the best road location based on cost. Optimization…
