Yes, I know, what the heck is Greg doing posting Civil 3D stuff on a Revit blog. Because there's now more of a reason to make sure your Civil Engineers are using Civil 3D instead of AutoCAD or Land Desktop (Architectural Desktop's evil cousin). As we migrate away from 2D drafting and move into 3D modeling and its associated coordination, this is just another little something that makes your life easier.
Here's a blurb from the AUGI Civil 3D article:
Building information modeling (BIM) is an integrated process built on coordinated, consistent information. AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 includes functionality that will enable engineering teams to collaborate even more effectively from design through construction and into operations. Through enhanced interoperability with Revit-based products, you can now import a building shell into Civil 3D from Autodesk Revit Architecture to bring in your roofline and building connection points. Civil 3D can now export alignment, profile and surface data that can then be imported into Autodesk Revit Structure for bridge modeling. You can now coordinate with every member of the project team.
While these are only a few of the many new features and enhancements in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010, the above information is among the most beneficial enhancements of the new product. Please stay tuned for 2010 "How-to" guides for the new features.
