Autodesk Infrastructure Product Hardware Specs & Recommendations


One of our stellar premium support specialists, Louisa Holland,
recently put together a great overview of hardware specs and
recommendations for InfraWorks and Civil 3D. I thought her
recommendations were spot-on, so I wanted to share them with
