Have You Tried?  Shared Reference Point extension for Civil 3D and Revit


By Bobby del Rosario

In this month’s edition of our Have You Tried series, we’ll be taking a close look at the Shared Reference Point extension for Civil 3D and Revit.

Civil 3D and Revit manage coordinate systems in different ways. Because of the difference in coordinate systems, using the shared reference point extension can greatly improve the organization of your workflow between the two systems, offering a quick and easy way to sync the coordinate systems between a Civil 3D drawing and a Revit project.

By exporting the coordinate system in Civil 3D as an xref file, you can import the coordinate information to Revit without needing to manually update the coordinate system in Revit.

Shared Reference Point is built into Civil3D 2022. If you are using a prior release you will need to download and install the extension separately through the Autodesk Desktop App or through the Autodesk Accounts (https://manage.autodesk.com/) page. The extension will show up under Product Updates only with valid subscriptions to Revit or Civil 3D products.

Head over to the Civil 3D Have You Tried topic to learn more about the Shared Reference Point extension!
