Leica X-change provides a seamless link between Leica System 1200 surveying equipment and the AutoCAD Civil 3D environment.

Trimble Link for AutoCAD Civil 3D enables you to transfer survey and design data between the Civil 3D database and Trimble field systems including the TSC1, TSCe, ACU Controller, Trimble CU Controller, Geodimeter CU600, and supported Nikon instruments. It further supports the use of Trimble site controller systems.

Carlson Connect is an add-on to AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 that offers a collection of routines for transferring and converting data between Civil 3D 2008 and several popular data collectors. Carlson Connect runs inside Civil 3D 2008 and uses the current project data and design environment. Carlson Connect is a free utility to any Civil 3D 2008 user and can be downloaded.
