2D Lines to 3D Pipe Networks for Mega Projects and Small Projects
Collapse Expand


This demo will show a real-life project scenario from start to finish. The project has massive amounts of data in 2D but clash detection was a major focus. The team put a workflow together using Civil 3D software, ArcGIS, Navisworks software, and the power of pipe networks to produce a very robust data set for the design teams to use. Assumed depth utilities present a dynamic problem in today's 3D world. Without proper as-built data, design standards, and construction documentation, this problem was a major hurdle for this team. The workflow they assembled enabled the consumer to easily determine the levels of accuracy, and individual pipes or networks could be updated in real time and displayed in a Navisworks federated model.

Key Learnings

  • Discover potential areas for improved workflow while modeling existing utilities.
  • Learn how to create dynamic shareable content using out-of-the-box Civil 3D tools.
  • Learn how to create usable 3D data from static 2D data.
  • Get the tools to explain your assumptions to your consumers without loads of external data files.
