U.S. CAD Infrastructure Tuesday Webinar: ArcGIS to Civil 3D, Infraworks & Revit

September 1 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 am

Join James Lord (StarLord James) and Ron Couillard to learn what GIS is, where you can get it (for free and for a cost), and how you can create a map to share/access it inside of InfraWorks, Civil 3D, and even Revit. Use Civil 3D to import utility GIS data and convert it to a Civil 3D Pipe Network.

Attendees will learn:

  • What GIS data is and how to utilize it
  • Access this data inside Civil 3D, InfraWorks and Revit
  • Where to find free and paid GIS data


James Lord (StarLord James) began working with AutoCAD in 1997 before specializing in civil infrastructure in 2003. Prior to joining U.S. CAD, Mr. Lord served in several BIM Manager and Specialist roles at KPFF, where he designed and created 3D models that were used in the construction of commercial, residential, government, and roadway projects. He was also responsible for pioneering, testing, evaluating, and deploying CAD standards and BIM modeling practices for his entire team, as well as providing training and mentoring. Mr. Lord’s other BIM Management duties included software management and customization, development of BIM standards and workflows, supervision and maintenance of software templates, technology evaluation and budgeting, and hardware and network support for BIM production. Mr. Lord also leverages his industry and software expertise to host “Infrastructure Universe”, a monthly series dedicated to the providing updates, news, new workflows, tips & tricks, and anything else related to the Civil Engineering Universe.
