    Most building design projects live in two worlds: everything inside the building, and everything outside the building. The two worlds come together only after an excessive amount of swearing and hours of unnecessary time spent. But does it have to be that way? Absolutely not. Coordinating Revit software and Civil 3D software, even in the cloud, doesn't have to require a degree in theoretical physics, and this session, co-presented by a Revit specialist and a Civil 3D specialist, is where you can learn how. You will gain an understanding of the expectations for each platform and learn how to configure them. With coordinated model locations in place, we'll define effective practices for exchanging data between Revit and Civil 3D through BIM 360 software. Using the full potential of each coordinated design model, you will learn how to assemble your project in the context of its surroundings using InfraWorks software, and you'll learn how to generate a virtual reality (VR) scene.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to establish shared coordinates between Revit and Civil 3D.
    • Learn how to incorporate Revit building model data in Civil 3D.
    • Learn how to share a Surface model from Civil 3D with Revit using BIM 360.
    • Learn how to assemble design-model data into an immersive InfraWorks model.
