Tracey, I use 12D Model for all design...and export that design to acad as a drawing file (2D or 3D) which can be read straight into acad. I have Map 3D 2009, but it is only used as a drafting tool. We started with LDT then migrated to Map because they can handle the large coordinate values we use.

Thanks Alan.
The civils people have decided to buy the C3D for their team. So hopefully they will start to use that as part of their design tools too!
Thanks for explaining the word "many" to me, it means a lot.

I hope they do.....one of the techs here has C3D 2009......but he also only uses it as a cad tool for drafting. He uses CivilCad for design.....and C3D for final drawings......oh well......

Your experimenting with Revit will serve you well if you are working with Civil 3D . . . the Toolspace will seem very familiar.

The civils team are going Civil 3D, my team are going Revit structure, and the MEP guys are going Revit MEP, + a sprinkling of AutoCAD Architecture thrown in for the general users and a pool of shared licences.

I'm looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time!

I stand ready to assist with their transition to C3D, and my Passport is in order.
Be your Best

Thanks Michael... I've already told the main cad guy in that team about this place, so hopefully he'll look in :-)
