Trimble SiteVision - Visualize Your 3D Model Data

Imagine if you could visualize your 3D design data in the real world, even though it only exists as a design model. Trimble® recently introduced SiteVision™ which is a user-friendly outdoor augmented reality system that brings your 3D design data to life so you can visualize, explore and understand the impact of your design in the real world.

SiteVision combines hardware and software in an integrated, lightweight handheld or pole-mounted solution.

Pipe Network Objects using the Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS in Civil 3D 2020.1

In this video, Seiler Design Solutions presents the third in a series of videos featuring the Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS Online and how the data can be used in Autodesk Products.

In this video, we will show you how you can create gravity pipe network Civil 3D data objects in Civil 3D 2020.1. We will connect to ArcGIS Online data that contain both pipe and structure layers with attributes we can map to standard Civil 3D pipe network attributes. We can fill in any missing data with default values allowing us to get a start in creating pipe networks for analysis or design.
