Route Model

In the route, the process of mapping the roadway and railroad with a fully parameterized 3D model is amazingly easy thanks to the intuitive design principle.

Flexible Modular Design

In railroad construction, the first thing you have to do is model the superstructure with the track strips as the ballast superstructure, slab track or tramway. In road construction, however, you generate the pavement strips with the width and crossfall list and underlying layer composition. A comprehensive catalog of standard profiles is available to help you with this.
For the transition to ground, you can position various elements such as ditches, hollows, benches and slopes.

You can design other elements – some of which originate from the world of construction engineering – directly as part of the track:

Integrated Trades

When creating your route model, you can use data from many other different disciplines as a basis and combine this data to create a fully comprehensive model:

Parameterized and Clearly Structured

Our software offers flexible components with dimensions that can change along the route. You can specify widths, crossfall and thicknesses for specific areas, whereby either interpolation can be performed between two different values or a constant progression with jumps is assumed. This reduces the number of components needed and ensures that your design remains neat and uncluttered.

Rule-Based and Up-To-Date

Instead of entering parameters directly, you can define them and the existence of objects using rules – for example, the specific slope height as of which a retaining wall is required.
This is useful because whenever changes are made (e.g. to the alignment or vertical alignment), the route can automatically be adjusted accordingly.

Smart and Fast

The smart components can automatically adjust themselves to different conditions. Specifications such as minimum crossfall in the subgrade or integrated embankment bottom hollows are already saved in the component logic, which saves you the time-consuming job of having to enter them manually.


In many areas, ProVI helps to ensure that your route design is guideline-compliant; for example, with standard profiles, lane-widening measures and crossfall calculation in accordance with RIN, subgrade widths in accordance with Ril 800.0130 and platform edge calculation in accordance with DB Guideline 813 / ÖBB Guideline RW 01.06.


The “Animation” function allows you to “drive” along the route in a cross-sectional view during the design stage. This is an easy way to check the model and identify problems early on during the route design phase.


You can bundle multiple routes in a single route project, allowing you to evaluate and visualize different traffic routes (e.g. road and rail) together.


For all positions in the route model, ProVI can determine volumes and quantities itself in accordance with REB or export them via the IFC or CPIXML interface for analysis in third-party programs. You can also generate calculation tables for sight distances and level output.


You can also use the route model to create representations of the site plan, grading plan and cross-sections. It also provides a basis for 3D visualizations and the three-dimensional volume model, which is generated with the BIM output modules.
