There is an extension now available for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2008 customers on Autodesk Subscription. The extension is...
AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 Survey Link
It allows raw survey data to be converted into an Autodesk field book file (.fbk) and then imported directly into Civil 3D 2008. No longer will we need to use Land Desktop in this process.
This downloadable extension requires that Civil 3D 2008 Service Pack 2 be already installed.
Login to subscription center to download.
Yes, it is the same as is available in Land Desktop, now directly available in Civil 3D 2008.
