Data shortcuts and references

Connect civil engineering project teams by working from the same consistent, up-to-date project model from survey to construction documentation.Using data shortcuts and x-refs, team members can share model data – such as surfaces, alignments and pipes – and use one design object for multiple design tasks. For example, if a surveyor creates the existing ground surface, designers can connect to that data in parallel to design the road or plot layout. Drafters can generate annotation from the data shortcuts or directly through a xref to keep production drafting in sync.

  • Replace drawing objects with data shortcut references
  • Manage and repair broken data shortcuts
  • Associate drawing objects to data shortcuts
