This product so cool.

 

Our company has been looking for a product like this for 2 years.

 

We tried to use Civil 3D surfaces and Solidworks to build very large model with some success.

 

With this software, will be very easily to use.

I would also like to know if this is available for C3D 2013.

At this point the team is collecting feedback from the 2012 user base because that is enough users to get them the feedback they need. Should they decide to expand their audience, they can consider a 2013-based technology preview, but that is not on my roadmap right now.

Just came across this on a LinkedIn Civil 3D Users Group. WOW! Can't wait for this grading option to be incorporated with the Civil 3D product. Have watched the videos numerous times and would like to practice on my own to better understand the concept. However, a few keys bits of information are not included in the videos. For example, does it matter what the original elevations assigned to a feature line are since the grading plane key point, direction of flow and flow grade change them anyway? Just curious.

I've got a few articles on ITS on my blog.  Maybe you'll find some helpful information there.  http://ericchappell.blogspot.com/search/label/ITS

The elevations of feature lines are always replaced by the elevations derived from the geometry on which they are draped. For example, the boundaries of parking lot and pond are always derived from the planes on which they are draped, hence we don't recommend editing their elevations. However, if you are working with feature lines that are not draped, then you can edit the elevations to control the output. For example, when using a feature line as a baseline to create a swale (or berm), you will need to edit the elevations manually to control the result of swale/berm operation.

Can all the grading you create in the Interactive Terrian Shaper become civil 3d surfaces for use in your production drawings? I noticed if you create a simple parking lot in ITS that the surface does not include the projected slopes around the pereimeter.
