Creating topography from a DWG link

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 are going to get the data from them in either DWG or DGN format. Now I am 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 am going to go to the Insert tab, and click on the Link CAD button. So this time I am 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 am not going to change most of the settings down at the bottom, I am going to leave them the way they were set in the previous import that we di...
