Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating topography from a DWG link, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- 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 and outside civil engineer.…There is no Revit Civil Engineering package.…Therefore, most civil engineers are either using…AutoCAD or MicroStation.…So you're gonna get the data from them…in either DWG or DGN format.…Now I'm in a file here called CAD Topo…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'm using Origin to Origin here for the positioning.…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
