Shared Reference Point Add-In for Civil 3D and Revit

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.

Keeping your AutoCAD Drawings Clean

It is a common scenario:

It is 3:00 on a Friday afternoon, submittal day for a project you and your firm has been working on for the last few weeks.  You are making last minute changes to ensure delivering a quality product, but your drawings are slow to open and sluggish to respond.  Your plots are taking far too long to complete and you're pushing the limits for time as they need to be checked, signed and sealed. Why is this taking so long?

COGO Point Ground/Grid Coordinate Transformation in Civil 3D

Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D has the ability to transform COGO points grid to ground conversion as well as transforming points from a local project coordinate system to a standard projected coordinate system with a few simple steps.  The video linked below is a quick demonstration of the process, along with some tips on how to display and use this information via COGO point labels and exported text files for re-importation into the drawing or for using with other applications.

AutoCAD 2017.1 and AutoCAD LT 2017.1 Update



Autodesk has again released a software update for Autodesk AutoCAD 2017 and AutoCAD LT 2017, offering some bug fixes, along with a mix of new features.

Dubbing this AutoCAD 2017.1 and AutoCad LT 2017.1, it is currently available for download and installation via the Autodesk Desktop App that is installed along with your Autodesk AutoCAD 2017.


Have you ever needed some preliminary surface data for a conceptual design and you haven't had the opportunity to get the field crews out to start picking up topo?

In this video, I will go through the process of downloading a binary DEM file from the National Map and bring it into a surface in Civil 3D that I can use for analysis of a future project. As part of following video, I will show you a quick trick to convert surface elevations from meters to feet in just a few easy steps.
