I am transforming water system components from Autocad dwg files (created in Civil 3d 2013 I think) to a personal (or file) geodatabase in ArcGIS 10.1. I am not familair with using Civil 3d.
I would like to know if there is some way I can export (as ESRI shapefile) AECC alignment objects (waterlines) as lines/polylines and preserve associated data (flow direction and station label info) as field attributes associated with the lines/polylines. I am not sure if there is elevation data associated with the alignments, but would want to preserve that data too if it is available.
there exists the command _AECCEXPORTTOSDF, that can create GIS-data from some Civil3D objects.
The next step is to convert the alignment-data in the SDF to a SHP (or if you have to an ArcSDE connection)
Steps like _MAPCONNECT the SDF data and then run bulkcopy to get it converted to a SHP .. or use _MAPIMPORT to get the data from the SDF into AutoCAD (as AutoCAD objects with objectdata) and back to a SHP with _MAPEXPORT.
HTH & good luck, - alfred -
