Webcast follow-up: Using the AEC Collection Tools for Land Development Projects, Part 2

I thank everyone for attending my webcast on February 19th, 2020. This was the second part of a presentation I did at Autodesk University in 2019. Due to the length of the original I had to break the webcasts into two parts, the first part taking place on January  22, 2020.

Here is a link to the Webcast follow-up blog I wrote for Part 1 of the webcast.

If you want to view the video for the the first part, follow this link.

In the second part of the AEC Collection Tools for Land Development Projects, we looked at three products:

  1. Autodesk Civil 3D
  2. Autodesk Revit 
  3. Autodesk Navisworks

I demonstrated how one can import an InfraWorks model into Civil 3D with minor amount of tweaking. Then I replicated the analysis, visual tools and conceptual work I had done in InfraWorks in Civil 3D to a more refined level for the design development stage. I created a Shared Reference Point file for Revit and then created a preliminary grading surface to be used in Revit. 

From Civil 3D, I ventured into Revit where I looked at various design options. I brought different Shared Reference Point files into Revit and inserted the Topographies developed in Civil 3D. Finally, I jumped into Navisworks and demonstrated its Quantification and Visualization capabilities.

The webcast was prepared for:

  • Architects
  • Civil Engineers
  • Site Designers
  • Landscape Architects
  • Technicians

Topics covered in the webcast:

  • Importing an InfraWorks model into Civil 3D.
  • Using Civil 3D as a design development tool.
  • Sharing surfaces and reference points between Civil 3D and Revit.
  • Using Navisworks for quantification and visualization.

These topics are covered in two of ASCENT's learning guides:
