Autodesk Geotechnical Module 2019 Released

The latest version of Autodesk’s Geotechnical Module enables users to update models faster and present complex geological models more easily, than ever before.

“A major improvement to the module means, for the first time, users can update existing borehole information. Boreholes can simply be removed and the updated data imported, which is automatically included in models and profiles,” said Keynetix Technical Director Gary Morin.

There are also a number of new features to allow users to customize drawings and profiles. Geological strips can be moved to avoid them overlapping when boreholes are close together; users can create their own geological legend keys; re-order strata and we have made a number of improvements to the profile generation tools.

Licensed by Keynetix to Autodesk, the Geotechnical Module is a free add-on to AutoCAD Civil 3D. It is a cut down version of HoleBASE SI Extension and can connect to HoleBASE SI to give CAD and BIM teams instant access to centrally-held geotechnical data. It can also be used as a standalone product.

The new version of the Geotechnical Module can be downloaded from users’ Autodesk Management Console at and to attend Keynetix’s Geotechnical Module training, visit
