AutoCAD® Civil 3D® civil engineering software...

AutoCAD® Civil 3D® civil engineering software uses building information modeling (BIM) to help civil engineering project teams evaluate more what-if scenarios earlier in the design process and get transportation, land development, and environmental projects done faster and more efficiently.

AutoCAD Civil 3D helps civil engineers optimize project performance with geospatial analysis to identify the best project site, stormwater analysis for more sustainable designs, quantity takeoff and dynamic earthwork calculations to optimize material usage, and 3D visualizations to better understand project impacts on environment.

The AutoCAD Civil 3D Importer for Trimble Business Center - HCE

The AutoCAD® Civil 3D® Importer utility offers a fully automated data exchange solution that enables the direct import of Civil 3D model data into Trimble® Business Center - HCE software. This utility extends the capabilities of Trimble Business Center - HCE to read intelligent Civil 3D model elements such as alignments, profiles, COGO points, and roadway corridor models. The result is a more streamlined process that helps construction professionals use civil BIM data for construction data preparation and site-positioning and grade-control operations.

* Retains the intelligence of the Civil 3D source model and facilitates creation of a construction-ready 3D model
* Offers improved DWG file format support (including RealDWG™)
* Minimizes the need to create specific files for contractors before they start the bidding or construction process

Additional Information

The AutoCAD Civil 3D Importer for Trimble Business Center - HCE requires the installation of any language version of Trimble® Business Center - HCE version 1.4.

The Importer utility can access 2010 or earlier DWG files, and replaces the standard AutoCAD® DWG import capability that ships in Trimble Business Center - HCE. The installation of AutoCAD Civil 3D is not required to use this utility.
