In the last of a series of two video blogs, we look to open an Infraworks model in Civil 3D. For this to be possible in the first place, both must share a compatible coordinate system.
South Africa has a coordinate system that is not consistent with the way in which software is programmed. x points South, y points West and z down into the ground. To get around this in Civil 3D, for instance, the South African Country Kit maps the x-axis to the y-axis and the convention in South […]
When there is little information available of an existing development, or if large-scale planning is to be done, then Infraworks is a good place to start. In part one of two video blogs, we look at preparing the Infraworks model, so we can import that into Civil 3D for further analysis. Using the Infraworks Model […]
After the online map data has been set and the coordinate system chosen, drawing line from (0,0,0) to a corner of the project and then zooming to extents exposes the entire coordinate system. On this case, UTM 40S is the coordinate system that is used. Here is the island on which the project is located. […]
Revit Link Civil 3D Published Surface Before linking in the Topography from the published Civil 3D topography, the coordinates between Civil 3D were shared into Revit (Shared Reference Point). In Civil 3D 2019.1, publish the surface. This may be found on the Collaborate or Output tabs. Choose which surface to export or use the “Pick […]
