Autodesk Civil Engineering Data Translator available for download

Autodesk has released their newest Civil Engineering Data Translator for Civil 3D 2016-2019.  Unlike previous versions, this one is now a stand-alone program instead of an additional toolset within Civil 3D.

The Civil Engineering Data Translator allows customers to translate data back and forth between Autodesk Civil 3D and Bentley Geopak or InRoads software. The data is limited to geometry COGO points and alignments and surface data.

Users will need to be signed in with their Autodesk account to use the software.

Weapon of Mass Conversion

Civil 3D is arguably the most powerful civil engineering tool available today.  CAD drawings created using Civil 3D transcend "static linework" and incorporate "smart objects" capable of redrawing themselves as conditions change.
(Once you experience this workflow, you'll never want to work any other way.)

That being said...
The time may come when you'll need to exchange drawings with a client who does not use Civil 3D. Their CAD package may require you to reduce files down to simple linework.
