The 3D Repo for Autodesk® Civil 3D® & AutoCAD® plugin provides a convenient way of uploading your models directly to 3D Repo from within the Civil 3D and AutoCAD desktop applications.

Currently supported versions: Civil 3D and AutoCAD 2020, 2021 & 2022

Initial Setup

  • Before you upload your Civil 3D / AutoCAD model, you will need to create a model container in 3D Repo. If you have one already, then you can skip this step

  • Download and install the plugin prior to opening the desktop application

  • Open your 3D model (.dwg) in Civil 3D or AutoCAD

We advise you to take measurements and check that your Civil 3D / AutoCAD model matches the model units in 3D Repo.

Model Publish

Great! Now that your model is ready, follow the steps below to publish it to 3D Repo:

  • Click on the Publish icon located in the 3D Repo tab (main ribbon menu)

  • In the 3D Repo Model Uploader window provide your login details and click Login. You can switch between 3drepo.io or ca.3drepo.io as the domain server.

  • Navigate over to your model container by selecting the relevant Teamspace, Project and Model

  • Provide the following information:

    1. Revision name (alpha-numerical values only & 20 Characters max)

    2. Optional text description

    3. Select a Level of Detail (by default it is set to Low)
      Ensure that ‘Last Revision’ section contains the correct information prior to uploading.

  • Click on the Upload button and the progress bar will appear

  • Done will indicate a successful upload, a warning message will tell you otherwise

Once uploaded, your model will start processing on our servers and a model container on 3drepo.io will indicate it.

When your model is ready, you will see a new model revision timestamp.
