The new version of AUTOPATH 2023.1 brings some practical functionalities and improvements. It supports rear steering vehicles and has an improved horizontal analysis. Several national vehicle libraries and vehicle manufacturer libraries have been added.

AUTOPATH is compatible with the latest BricsCAD V23 and AutoCAD and Civil 3D 2023.

Rear steering vehicles supported

Rear steering vehicle support has been added to the Autopath swept path analysis options. Forklifts and harvesters use rear steering, which is now supported and swept path analysis can be made for these types of vehicles.

Horizontal analysis enhancements

The horizontal analysis now includes a UI option to select the vehicle’s front or back axis to follow the selected polyline/path. Additional custom offset and analysis report options are available in the analysis Animation UI / Settings options. When the rear steering vehicles are being used, the back-axis option is disabled automatically.
