Make in minutes
Drag and drop any of the 100+ pre-made sections to quickly build out your road, street, rail or bridge project in existing or proposed conditions. Auto-generated labels quickly identify elements of your project and assets such as pedestrians, vehicles and trees are animated by default. Quickly assign primary and secondary assets to sections to add detail to your street including streetlights, safety elements, trees and more.
Easily adjust widths and heights of any sections and place retaining walls anywhere in your project. Assign and place up to 3 underground utilities of any size to each section. Customize the pedestrian and traffic library to include only the people or vehicles you want. Swap any texture of any section with a library of 40+ realistic materials. More than 200 assets and 40+ decals can be placed for faster street design.
Communicate with Color
Adjust the hue of any texture for green bike lanes, red parking curbs, maroon bus lanes and more. Change the color of labels to match colors of utilities, lanes and more. Use animated area highlights and pathway arrows to communicate construction staging and detours. Use special colored sections to show right of ways or other edge limits. Adjust the gradient background to draw attention and match project color schemes. Use Scene Effects for artistic styling.
Produced for Professionals
Beyond Typicals was built by a licensed civil engineer and has been improved by the feedback from professionals using it on real projects. Use RRFBs that actually flash, accurate traffic delineators, pavement markings, guardrail and other 3D assets carefully modeled and curated for accurate representation. Lock centerlines and edge sections to match design conditions, and use the width guide to ensure your street design is staying within your corridor. Customize striping by width, length and color. Work in imperial (ft) or metric (m). Adjust traffic volumes.
Phase in 4D
Projects aren’t static, and communicating phases of a project is as important as ever. Create and display phases, alternatives or sections along an alignment with ease. Use trench sections and construction assets to communicate closures and utility relocations. Display multiple phases or alternatives at once with layout mode.
Perfect your Presentation
While presenting in real-time from Beyond Typicals is always an incredible option to communicate your projects, rendering tools make creating beautiful images and videos possible as well. Publish any angle of your street as an image in any resolution and even render .png files with alpha/transparency for use in PowerPoints, large prints, brochures, websites, flyers and more. Render animated cameras to quickly create video .mp4 files for YouTube, news broadcasts, social media and more.
Accessible to Anyone
Beyond Typicals has been carefully crafted in such a way that anyone with any background can use this software. For the first time, engineers, project managers, office assistants, contractors and other professionals can make photorealistic 3D renders of transportation projects without any prior training or experience. What used to take days or weeks (and significant cost) to create can now be done in a fraction of the time and money with Beyond Typicals. Getting started is easy and mastering the software will only take days or even hours of practice- not months or years like other 3D software. Online training is available so you can be self-taught at your own pace.
