 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.

 Shared Reference Points and BIM 360

Shared Reference Points and BIM 360



Kevin Spear PE (Civil 3D) and Bill Knittle (Revit), Senior Application Experts for Synergis, deliver a detailed walkthrough of how to emplot Shared Reference Point tools and BIM 360 Docs with Revit and Civil 3D
Visit the Synergis YouTube page



This is a live user group meeting presentation so you get some of the benefit of questions from the crowd.
Note the use of Shared folders for published work in the BIM 360 Docs environment.

For Civil 3D folks this video provides a good picture of both the Civil 3D and the Revit side mechanics and issues.
There a bit of a hanky wave on why the revised building footprint is moved when an XREF is updated in Civil 3D.
As usual in a live demo and real life it is easy to assume, miss a step, or a checkbox.
