I have made a drawing in Civil 3d 2013, with a surface that shows the contours of a site. I would like to get that into my arcmap, but when i use the CAD to geodata base i don't get any of the contour lines, i just see a bunch of points. Is there a step i am missing. i set the coordinate system in my civil dwg to match that of my arcmap. but not sure what else to do.
