The BIM Coordinator for AutoCAD Civil 3D and Revit was our free technology preview that assists project team members with building and site grids. The technology preview automated the more error-prone manual steps in the coordination of site and building grids between the AutoCAD and Revit environments. The tool specified one common XYZ point and its orientation in the XY plane between the two coordinate systems. This reference point defined the relationship between the building and site grid.
The technology preview has ended. For existing users, the technology preview will cease operation on March 31 (not January 12 as previously reported). Thanks to everyone who participated in the tech preview — those who downloaded:

Due to strong positive labs feedback, we are actively working on a plan to graduate the Autodesk Labs BIM Coordinator for AutoCAD Civil 3D / Revit technology preview to the AutoCAD Civil 3D Productivity Tools site on the Autodesk Subscription Center. Our expectation is to have versions for both the R2012 and R2013 platforms prior to the end of January 2013. Announcement of availability will be via various Autodesk Civil Infrastructure blogs including From the Ground Up, BIM on the Rocks, Being Civil, and It's Alive in the Lab. Stay tuned.
Anticipation is alive in the lab.
