Exchange 3D modeled objects between Civil 3D and InfraWorks

Module overview

Moving from one Autodesk software to another for the design should not require starting over from scratch. In this module, you learn how to use the InfraWorks model in Civil 3D. Then, you learn how to modify the cross-section that came in from InfraWorks to add details to the corridor model. Finally, you update the Civil 3D model with changes that were made in InfraWorks.
This module takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. By the end of the module, you should be able to: 
  • Send the InfraWorks model to Civil 3D
  • Modify the cross-section of the road in Civil 3D
  • Update the Civil 3D model with design changes from InfraWorks
  • Create data shortcuts in Civil 3D
