New InfraWorks Essentials Datasets Available

Updated datasets for InfraWorks and InfraWorks 360 Essentials have been posted to Wiley's web page for the book.

If you've installed the latest update for InfraWorks, be sure to re-download the datasets and use the ReadMe file as you work through the exercises. There are important things you need to know about subtle changes that had to be made to some of the exercise steps, object names, etc.
I've had a few e-mails from folks who are trying to work through the book with InfraWorks 2014. No can do. If you've got 2014 I'm afraid the book's datasets simply won't open. The book was written for the 2015 release and now the datasets have been updated for the latest 2015.2 update.
If you have issues or questions, feel free to e-mail infraworks.essentials@gmail.com.

  2. FYI: For the Bridge companion files, Wiley has posted zip files that are multi-part. Chapter 2 is posted correctly. Chapter 1 is missing the .zip master file necessary to recompile all of the parts. They posted .z01 twice in lieu of .z01 and .zip.

    1. I will look into it and we'll get the right files posted ASAP. Thanks for pointing this out!

    2. All dataset files have been updated and are now delivered as EXE files. It's been a challenge finding a way to deliver the large datasets that InfraWorks produces but we feel we've found a winner this time.
