    Working with data sets between single-precision, non-geospatially aware applications (such as 3ds Max software, Revit software, and Inventor software) and double-precision, geospatially aware applications (like AutoCAD software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, InfraWorks software, ReCap software, and Navisworks software) can be difficult and frustrating. This class will help you to better understand this confusing process and explore several effective and proven methods for exchanging data sets between these applications with a minimal loss of production time.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to choose the ideal projection systems for geo-spatial data exchange
    • Learn how to create custom coordinate systems for exchanging data between single- and double-precision CAD and design applications
    • Learn how to create and modify simple scripts for translating data inside AutoCAD and AutoCAD Civil 3D
    • Learn how to prepare CAD assets for export and consequently bring the resulting models back to CAD in the correct geo-spatial location
