BIM 360 Design for Civil 3D

Collaboration for Civil 3D is new functionality being added to BIM 360 Design that allows project teams, whether within one company or across multiple companies, to collaborate securely on Civil 3D projects and store design files, data shortcuts, and external references in a common data repository.

Collaboration for Civil 3D enables Civil 3D users to:

  • Open and save Civil 3D files to the common data platform, BIM 360
  • Manage Xrefs (external reference) and create/consume Civil 3D Data Shortcut objects in a common data repository
  • Automated file locking of Civil 3D drawings
  • Support file-based collaboration on the BIM 360 platform
  • Integrate with Revit for Topography creation
