You have GIS contour data of a site in .SHP file format. You import the data into your design only to find out it is in 2D. How do you turn this 2D data into 3D data easily to create a Civil 3D surface
In the linked video, I will use Map 3D tools from within Civil 3d and show you how to import 2D contour data from a shapefile into a drawing, query the data to another drawing to elevate the imported polylines and finally create a Civil 3D surfrace from this data.
In the following linked video, I demonstrate the Shared Reference Coordinate Extension from Autodesk to Reference a Civil 3D drawing coordinates back to my Revit model.
The purpose behind the Shared Reference Coordinate extension is to allow the export and import of the models from Revit to match the coordinates of a Civil 3D drawing without having to manually move and rotate the objects relative to each other.
Microsoft is ending support for version 7 of Bing Maps on June 30th, 2017.
A hotfix is now available that will upgrade your version of Bing Maps to version 8 so that you can continue to use the Geolocation Online Map Data feature. You can download the hotfix from the following link:

This is a correction to a post I made a while ago, concerning creating a Civil 3D surface from LAS point cloud data containing point classifications. Thanks to some information from a reader, I made some testing on the process I outlined earlier and determined it DID NOT filter out non-ground classified points from the surface.
