Re: BIM Coordinator for AutoCAD Civil 3D / Revit Structure Now Available

Due to strong positive labs feedback, we are actively working on a plan to graduate the Autodesk Labs BIM Coordinator for AutoCAD Civil 3D / Revit technology preview to the AutoCAD Civil 3D Productivity Tools site on the Autodesk Subscription Center. Our expectation is to have versions for both the R2012 and R2013 platforms prior to the end of January 2013. Announcement of availability will be via various Autodesk Civil Infrastructure blogs including From the Ground Up, BIM on the Rocks, Being Civil, and It's Alive in the Lab. Stay tuned.

Mike In answer to your questions :- Sectioning is pretty good, clear cut lines but you do need to keep the 'Far clip offset' small or you pick up a lot of projection lines. In spite of this some projection lines do appear but can be turned into invisible lines using the line work tool. Using the 'spot level' tool you can give levels at points on plan, in section it does not work as well, with the leader seemingly snapping to triangulation points at the ends of the 3D triangulation faces. The workflow I have used for the 3D solid is as follows:- Form the surface in Civil 3D. Extract 3D triangles from the surface. Using a lisp routine, I picked up from an online forum, convert the 3D faces to a 3D solid ( The routine extrudes each triangle to a preset level to form a 3D solid then joins the individual solids together.) To make a cleaner 3D section view in Revit I have exported structural elements out of Revit as 3D solids imported them into the 3D ground solid .dwg and subtracted them out of the 3D solid which gives a clear edge when cut. I have attached some screenshots as an example. This is the first time for a good few years I have dabbled in surfaces in Revit, having been assured that things had improved, seems as though, once again, the individuals spreading these rumours don't actually use the software.

If you are referring to the method described of importing Civil 3D surfaces into Revit the answer is yes.
