Cross-Discipline Coordination: Civil 3D to Revit and Back Again
From his Autodesk University 2019 class, Kyle Groves, EIT, Senior Technical Specialist, explains about locating the Revit model in “real world” coordinates in the blog below.
Autodesk Revit allows design teams to collaborate in true BIM fashion, using linked models to make educated design decisions throughout the development of a project across the whole team… well, ah…. the whole Revit team at least.
Since Civil disciplines are not using Revit, building teams tens to fall back to non-BIM strategies for coordination with Civil. However, just like Revit users, Civil 3D users have an increasingly high demand for streamlined information gathering and data quality- in a sense, they are living in the same ‘BIM’ world as the Revit team, but without a conduit to the data.
This class attempts to shorten the bridge between Civil 3D and Revit by discussing two common issues when collaborating between the two…
