Local governments are gradually more involved with 3D infrastructure designs: On one hand, they’re managing their existing infrastructure—like storm/sanitary sewers and aqueducts networks—through georeferenced databases. On the other hand, they’re designing their proposed infrastructures through Civil 3D objects. Civil 3D software never had a perfect fit to connect with geographic information system (GIS) data, from recreating existing 3D infrastructures to better connecting them with proposed designs. Then Dynamo came into the picture! This presentation will cover efficient workflows using Dynamo for Civil 3D, mapping electric utility GIS data to automatically create Civil 3D pipe network objects using a custom pipe catalog. We will also cover attribute transfers involving both object data and property sets.
- Learn how to import a GIS object into Civil 3D
- Learn how to create Civil 3D pipes and structures from electric utility GIS objects using Dynamo for Civil 3D
- Learn how to transfer attributes between Civil 3D objects and GIS objects
- Learn how to create MAPEXPORT-friendly objects ready to be consumed by GIS
