- [Instructor] There are many scenarios…where you might need to use imported data…from other programs in Revit,…and one very common scenario is when you're working…with a civil engineer.…There is no Revit civil package,…so civil engineers are often working…in AutoCAD Civil 3D or MicroStation.…So, if they produce a file that you want to use…in your Revit project, it will come in…in one of those file formats.…So in this video, I'm going to link in a CAD file…that represents the site plan information for my project…and then use that to create a Revit element…called a toposurface.…
So, I'm going to get started in the site plan actually,…because the display characteristics of the site plan…are more suitable to the information…that I'm going to be bringing in.…Then I'll go to the Insert tab and I'll click on Link CAD,…and I'll single click the AutoCAD site plan file…that I have listed right here.…Now, if you've watched previous video,…we imported a floor plan.…I'm going to use largely the same settings here…but I am going to modify one or two things.…
