BIM 360 Design for Civil 3D Basics

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.
