    Announcing the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 Survey Link Extension

    AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2008 Survey Link is a downloadable extension for AutoCAD
    Civil 3D 2008 software customers on Autodesk Subscription. This extension
    requires AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 Service Pack (SP) 2 and is targeted to be
    available worldwide (English only) on October 19 for all AutoCAD Civil 3D
    subscribers.

    Survey Link allows proprietary raw survey data to be converted into an
    Autodesk field book (.FBK) and imported into Autodesk Civil 3D 2008, further
    enhancing the survey functionality in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 software.

    Actions:
    . First, download AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 SP2.
    . Next, download the Survey Link extension (installation and readme).

    Would this accept raw data from a dumped file or straight from a data collector?

    It depends on the data collector. Under the Transfer menu there is a Send/Receive command that will allow you to get files from your data collector.

    Being familiar with Engineering aspects in our department and not so much having technical Survey Knowledge....

    The QUESTION has risen:

    Our Data collectors give us a .JOB file.

    What are the steps in getting it into Civil 3D 2008 and is it do-able.

    Personally I don't know if it can or not but worst case scenario, I would thionk there is some sort of "middle man" tool that should be able to convert a .JOB file into a field book file and then we would be able to bring it in, etc.

    Please answer and/or advise.

    It sounds like this survey extension might be what we are looking for......
