    This class will be a 60-minute demonstration that uses 2 actual infrastructure projects as a backdrop showing the synergy between Civil 3D software and InfraWorks software while emphasizing using data from native Esri data sources that are needed from early stages to construction phase. The geographic information system (GIS) emphasis in the demonstration will cover traditional import, FDO connection, the display manager, and geodatabase support, but, more importantly, it will hone in on the new tools available in InfraWorks and Civil 3D as a result of the new partnership between Esri and Autodesk. In this class, the new technology will be applied to real-life project situations, including early predesign changes and challenges, with changing data during the project lifecycle. Project data for the projects will include reality capture, planimetrics, geotechnical, utilities, and transportation.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn or review traditional import-export and data-connection methods for both Civil 3D and InfraWorks.
    • Learn display and stylization methodologies in InfraWorks and Civil 3D.
    • Understand what the ArcGIS Data connector is in InfraWorks, and learn how to use it for a new model and an existing model in the Civil BIM/GIS design model environment.
    • Understand the workflows associated with the connection to ArcGIS Online in InfraWorks, and workflows associated with that connection in the civil BIM model in Civil 3D.
