Update: I asked for a working file from the local Autodesk distributor and when I import the SHP file he sent and it still does not show. There are some rectangles with a timer on them that appear at the right coordinates, but I dont see the surface...
I made two screenshots.
Super weird and I have no idea what the cause might be.
It works now.
In the Data Source Configuration window, on Source tab I added the Set Elevation option to be Geometry, plus I also put the whole model to 0,0 in Civil 3D and now it works.
put the whole model to 0,0?
That should be the worst thing to do as most systems I deal with start with 6mil, 2mil, way far from 0,0.
This is a good starting point though.
Are you saying other imx's behave now also, or just the simple one?
Also, did it come in correctly, or are you just happy you are seeing it at all?
Half of IW is just showing up
Well, when I put it to 0,0 and made autocad's coordinate system to non defined, Infraworks automatically chose this coord system: UTM84-1N and the model I wanted to work appeared, so I am happy with it... I only want to make some visualization for a project so even if it is not completey correct, it will work just fine.
I would recommend you grab a shapefile of your areas coordinate system zones, and pull into acad to see if they make sense with where your linework is. Be sure you set the from and to systems correctly.
Then pull that same shapefile into IW as coverages.
Then make a simple shapefile using some project linework, setting coord system to what you normally do.
Pull that into IW and see if it lines up.
It seems like the error going on is IW reading the system you are assigning.
This is tricky as it might be that both acad and IW are doing your project system wrong somehow.
I think the systems are defined in the folder:
C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Geospatial Coordinate Systems\
so could be wrong for all adesk apps.
I think you need to try some sample data from others to make sure IW at least behaves with them too.
