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.
After a little break Project Basejump is back and running until August 2013 (that’s next year) for AutoCAD Map and Civil 3D 2013 users.
Its free and fast to use, just connect via the data connection (FDO) inside your ‘Planning and Analysis’ workspace, but ensure you have set the coordinate systems you are working in i.e. Great Britain, BritishNatGrid’
Then just choose the aerial or map that you want and connect, simple!
I use to show xrefing the 2D floor plan of the building to work out position on site and also set a floor level.
2 - Import DWG from Revit.dwg
Is showing that the Civil design has taken place with the position of the building in mind and that as the civil engineer I would like the building back in my model for reference purposes and to continue the drainage design, documentation etc.
Is the building to be setup with shared coordinate system
Coordinated Site Model.nwf
Is a Navisworks file with the Civil Model already linked and ready to receive the Revit file
Coordinated Site Model.nwd
Is a Navisworks published file with the Civil model embedded and not linked to the DWG file (easiest one to try out)
The rest of the files are reference files for aerial photography and ground surface data
Here is how I put it together if you haven't seen it in action.
Try it out for yourself and please give feedback via the Labs feedback system
Currently for 2012 releases of AutoCAD Civil 3D and Revit products
Project Parsec is a technology preview that allows AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 users to easily import and map GIS geometries and attributes to AutoCAD Map 3D standalone industry models from any FDO source, including SDF, SQLite, Esri SHP and geodatabase files, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle databases. If you, our partners or customers have been looking for a streamlined way to convert dumb GIS data into intelligent Map 3D industry models, for use in mapping, planning and/or management, Project Parsec will help.
