Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating topography from a DWG link, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie we'll look at another very common scenario where you will import CAD…data into your Revit project. And that's when you receive data from an…outside civil Engineer. There is no Revit civil Engineering package.…Therefore most civil engineers are either using autoCAD or microstation.…So, you're going to get the data from them in either DWG or DGN format.…Now, I'm in a file here called CADtopo, and in this example I'm going to bring in…another DWG file. But if you were bringing in a DGN, the…process would be virtually the same. So I'm going to go to the Insert tab and…click on the Link CAD button. So this time I'm going to select AutoCAD Siteplan.…
It's a DWG file. And it's actually one of the sample files…that ships with AutoCAD. It just contains some 3D lines…representing the contour lines of the project.…Now I'm not going to change most of the settings down at the bottom.…I'm going to leave them the way they were set in the previous import that we did in…the last movie. But I am going to make sure that I am…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
