Civil 3D Collaboration in BIM 360
Autodesk's Dave Simeone, John Sayre, and Ben Wardell deliver an overview of BIM 360 Design’s newest functionality, Collaboration for Civil 3D.
From the Autodesk Infrastructure Channel Playlists.
Recording playback starts 4:25 minutes in to avoid the usual Autodesk webinar start up goings on.
This is a basic Civil 3D in BIM 360 Design overview with the basic but important questions answered.
Currently, Civil 3D in BIM 360 Design does not support live edits of Civil 3D Survey data, but the drawing output results as XREFs and DREFs works fine.
BIM 360 Review Approvals for ArcGIS Updates
Adam Walmsley, a Senior Technical Specialist at Autodesk, shows how to employ a simple single step review process in BIM 360 Design for ArcGIS data updates.
From the Autodesk ANZ YouTube Channel.
In the real world this Review process for approval in going to be more complicated.
The Review itself does not protect the data source from being updated intentionally or accidently from Civil 3D in this context.
The point of the video is that BIM 360 Reviews are not super difficult to set up and employ. They can move drawings and resources around in the BIM 360 environment.
Obviously, the trust relationship with the data provider might be a bit more problematic without the BIM 360 Reviews and Issues capabilities.
BIM 360 Design for Civil 3D Basics
Zack Graff PE, an Applications Engineer at CAD Masters, delivers a basic review of BIM 360 Docs and BIM 360 Design for Civil 3D benefits and features.
From the CAD Masters YouTube Channel.
Zack delivers a good basic overview of the BIM 360 Tools in the Civil 3D context. This is not a how to, but a review of the major capabilities and the current tools for Civil 3D projects in the cloud.
The actual live demo starts about 10 minutes in after a Powerpoint overview - parts of which you will probably see elsewhere.
The basic nuts and bolts are all covered.
As seems to be usual at the moment some of the initial and current limitations of Civil 3D in BIM 360 Design get a hanky wave.
The initial BIM 360 Design implementation for Civil 3D does not currently support live Civil 3D Survey Db functionality in the cloud for example.
You can publish and employ the Survey Db results in drawings and XREFs but not manage the data or change it in a Civil 3D BIM 360 Design cloud project context.
