Autodesk University
Collapse Expand


Managing traditional architecture projects is a breeze compared to a horizontal transportation project with more than 15 disciplines and 52 project files. You can apply the principles learned on this project to any project type and size. This session will cover many of the obstacles we encountered while working with Revit software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and Navisworks software—and how we overcame them. We will walk you through our challenges (large number of files, AutoCAD Civil 3D software imports, exporting to Navisworks software, working with other CAD software) and, most importantly, how we overcame them. This session features Revit, AutoCAD Civil 3D, and Navisworks Manage. AIA Approved
