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

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

Initial Setup

  • Before you upload your Civil 3D 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

We advise you to take measurements and check that your Civil 3Dmodel 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 or 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 will indicate it.

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