    Do you struggle to understand shared coordinates? Are you manually moving design models into the correct location? Are you constantly forced to do redesign work because models aren't aligned correctly? If you've answered YES to any of these questions then this lab is for you! Collaborating with architects, designers and engineers within the context of a real-world coordinate system doesn't have to be painful or time-consuming. In this lab you'll discover for yourself just how quick and easy it is to properly geo-reference point clouds, Revit models, Civil 3D drawings and much more within the Autodesk Construction Cloud. Along the way we'll discuss best practices, tips-n-tricks, and what to watch out for when working with shared coordinates. At the end of this lab you'll be able to quickly AND correctly define a shared coordinate system for ALL the design files of your project and cross-link them into other design applications, enabling better design decisions.

    Key Learnings

    • Understand what a Shared Coordinate system is and how it affects design models
    • Quickly implement a Shared Coordinate system in Revit, Civil 3D, InfraWorks, and Inventor
    • Reduce errors & rework by utilizing a Shared Coordinate system
    • Increase stakeholder buy-in by visualizing ALL design models within the context of the real world
