Civil 3D Essentials

AutoCAD Civil 3D software supports a wide range of survey and civil engineering tasks. It creates intelligent relationships between objects so that design changes update dynamically. So your civil objects – alignments, profiles, terrain models, pipe networks – all update when the data changes. Learning how to use these tools effectively is your key to working smarter in civil projects. You gain these skills in our 3-day AutoCAD Civil 3D Essentials course.

Course content for Civil 3D Essentials

  • Use point data to create a site plan that is physically and legally accurate
  • Create a continuous surface that you can use to display contours and elevations accurately
  • Increase the accuracy of elevation calculations
  • Cut and Fill – review site volume calculations based on the terrain model
  • Transform a 2D schematic into a 3D site model by adding a directional surface to elevations
  • Save time by creating grading standards
  • Create long sections and new design profiles in a fraction of the time compared to AutoCAD
  • Use profiles to view elevation data along a horizontal profile
  • Represent a proposed surface along an alignment
  • View cross sections of elevations along surfaces
  • Create, view and manipulate a 3D model of a path for traffic
  • Incorporate road features into your design, such as lanes, sideslopes, ditches and curbs
  • Create a corridor to calculate how much soil to be move, how much concrete and asphalt you need
  • Design and present the flow of a utility system
  • Use aerial photography
  • Add street signs, lampposts and trees
  • Drive along an alignment
  • Understand best practices to visualise a corridor, tips to show off your work
  • Prepare quick and easy junctions using the Junction Design Wizard
  • Learn undocumented techniques for working with Civil 3Dand Revit together

Benefits of Revit Training
