CADtoEarth™ is a technology demonstration of connecting popular CAD modeling software packages with Cesium®, a geospatial 3D mapping platform for creating virtual globes.

CADtoEarth enables users to:

  • Upload a model directly from a modeling session into Cesium.
  • Import a section of the Earth’s surface directly from Cesium into a modeling session.
  • Position a 3D model on the imported surface within a modeling session and subsequently upload it back to Cesium.
  • Perform the same operations on 2D objects in a modeling environment and Cesium.

The CADtoEarth technology demonstration supports the following CAD platforms:

  • Autodesk® Revit®
  • Autodesk Inventor®
  • Rhinoceros®
  • Autodesk® AutoCAD® Map 3D
  • Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D®
  • Autodesk® Fusion 360™
  • BricsCAD®

To find out more about implementation details, see the CADtoEarth For Autodesk® Revit® User Guide.

The video demonstrations below show what CADtoEarth can do today.

Currently, only CADtoEarth™ for Autodesk® Revit® is supported.
