My colleague Marion Landry has put together a nice set of videos for using Civil View and also some clarification over the suite workflows that are included if you have installed the Infrastructure Design Suite with Civil 3D and 3ds Max Design
Hello World! My name is Adam Peter and I’m a Customer Success Engineer with Autodesk focusing on Data Management for Infrastructure companies around the world. Now, you may say to yourself, “What does data management mean and why do I need it? I already have a solid naming structure for all my files and all my users know what folders to browse to find all their files”. Well, my role is to help identify ways to enhance your data experience by utilizing design products like Civil 3D together with Data Management products like Vault Professional and Buzzsaw. Benefits like better managing Civil 3D objects like surfaces, alignments and profiles, creating workflow for projects and files that can be tracked and reported or managing data when external partners are involved.
Over the next months I’ll be posting periodically so please feel free to ask questions, engage in conversation and provide feedback. First up will be several posts on managing Civil 3D projects in Vault. Thanks, and looking forward to demonstrating the importance of data management From the Ground Up!
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.
