The Excellence in Infrastructure competition is hosted by CGarchitect and sponsored by Autodesk. The competition includes more than US$10,000 in prizes. We are looking for the best use of Autodesk® technology to plan, design, build, or manage civil infrastructure projects.

This is a global competition, so you are all invited to enter.
The recently renamed AutoCAD 360 product line, which consists of easy-to-use web and mobile drafting and documentation applications, reached new heights today through the introduction of two additional offerings: AutoCAD 360 Pro mobile app plans and AutoCAD 360 web app. The expansion of the AutoCAD 360 product line improves collaboration and delivers new and simplified ways to work with CAD on mobile devices and web browsers.
aka as the BIM Coordinator released on our Labs site, we have had a good interest in making this available on our newer releases.
So for both 2013 and 2014 releases this tool is now available on www.autodesk.com/subscription under the productivity tools for AutoCAD Civil 3D.
There are two installers, one to be installed on Civil 3D which runs from the toolbox and a second that installs to run on Revit (any version)
The tool exports an xml file from Civil 3D with coordinates and z level/elevation, rotation and units.
From within Revit you select the same two reference points on your building/structure and it creates a ‘Shared Coordinate System’ for your location and can orientate the view to suit and most importantly export the building/structure correctly to be used in AutoCAD platforms, Navisworks etc.
