autocad civil 3d

AutoCAD Civil 3D software, the building information modeling (BIM) solution for civil engineering, helps project teams deliver higher-quality transportation, land development, and environmental projects faster. Explore design ideas and analyze what-if scenarios to help optimize performance before projects are built. Extend Civil 3D model data to perform geospatial and stormwater analysis, generate quantity takeoffs, and support automated machine guidance during construction. Civil 3D provides the BIM advantage and tools you need to deliver more innovative design solutions.

Building information modeling (BIM) is an integrated process built on coordinated, consistent information. AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 includes functionality that will enable engineering teams to collaborate even more effectively from design through construction and into operations. Through enhanced interoperability with Revit-based products, you can now import a building shell into Civil 3D from Autodesk Revit Architecture to bring in your roofline and building connection points. Civil 3D can now export alignment, profile and surface data that can then be imported into Autodesk Revit Structure for bridge modeling. You can now coordinate with every member of the project team.
