AutoCAD Civil 3D Video Tip: GIS Data to Civil 3D Pipe Model
Posted on July 15, 2014 by Jesse Evans, Synergis Solutions Engineer:
In this short video I review the process of creating GIS (Mapping) data, attaching it to AutoCAD objects, and bringing that data into Civil 3D as a “BIM” or 3D Model. In the real world, your company will most likely download the GIS information from an online source, but understanding how and what is needed to get this to function correctly is all provided here. So sit back relax, and enjoy the show.
Hope this helps!
