Copy InfraWorks Styles from one Model to Another

So you've got a really cool road style that you spent an hour or so building and perfecting and now you want to use it in an other model.  What do you do?  Well, styles can be exported from InfraWorks using the save icon located at the top of the Style Palette.

InfraWorks will create a file with a .styles.json extension which can then be imported into another model using the import tool.


Keep in mind that you're not copying a style, you're copying the entire catalog (the "folder" that the styles are contained within).

You could keep a library of these style export files somewhere and pull from them whenever you need. You could also put your library on a network folder if you want to share with your office buddies.
