The key ProVI features at a glance.
Design your alignments in ProVI, graphically and interactively directly in the site plan. The smart alignment elements remember how they were designed. This makes changes much easier to implement because the adjacent elements are automatically recalculated, so that all logical relationships are retained. The feature alignment is available in ProVI Road and ProVI Rail.
Outer and central platforms are planned within the route model in ProVI. You can model the platform edge complete with coping stones and foundations, the platform surface, layer composition, platform drainage (box gutter or concrete gutter) and, for outer platforms, the rear side with angle support or non-raised curb. Platform fixture elements can be planned and positioned as well. The feature platforms is available in the Rail product.
Since it is BIM software, ProVI handles the import of IFC and CityGML models from other specialist applications, for example, to integrate existing structures or bridge models into the building model.
Vertical alignment establishes your route’s vertical profile, influencing the three-dimensional line layout, route structure, and the cut mass and filling. The feature vertical alignment is available in ProVI Road and ProVI Rail.
With ProVI, you can import owner, land register, and cadaster data from ALKIS, calculate acquisition areas and create land acquisition plans and records. The feature land acquisition is available in ProVI Road and ProVI Rail.
Use the ProVI sewer program to conveniently design and evaluate the drainage strategy for traffic routes as well as complete wastewater networks. The feature sewer planning is available in ProVI Road and ProVI Rail.
Road and rail construction work always affects the supply lines located in the vicinity. Our CAD software allows you to see these in the context of the overall model. This helps you identify potential conflicts with your plans in the design stage. The feature supply lines is available in ProVI Road and ProVI Rail.
Use ProVI to manage and edit the catenary masts complete with foundations and cantilever beams. You can enter the positions and elevations of masts either in the form of fixed coordinates or relative to a track alignment. Data from specialized programs for catenary planning, such as OLACAD, can be transferred to the ProVI model via interface files or from drawings. The feature catenary is available in ProVI Rail.
Describe the roadway or railroad in the route with surprising ease using a fully parameterized 3D model. In railroad construction, you first model the track superstructure with the rails as a ballasted track, solid track, or tramway line. In road construction on the other hand, you generate lanes with the width and transverse slope progression as well as the underlying layer composition. The cross section editor is available in ProVI Road and ProVI Rail.
Switches in ProVI are part of the branch alignment and can be positioned at any point along the main track – on a straight line, arc, or transition curve. Likewise, crossings and slip crossings are part of the intersecting alignment and can be positioned as required on straight lines and curves. The feature switches is available in ProVI Road and ProVI LST.
ProVI actively assists you with the guideline-compliant routing of your roadways and railroads. Easily design guideline-compliant alignments, vertical alignments, and switches. Minimum, standard, and maximum values for element lengths, radii, and banking are automatically calculated for you if desired. Conformity with the guidelines selected by you is checked in real time even during the design phase. Positions are marked immediately in case of violations. The limit values to be checked are usually read from a configuration file, which means they can be adjusted by the user if needed.
