Civil 3D Roundabout Design

The Civil 3D Roundabout Design course builds on your previous experience of highway design using Civil 3D, focusing on the skills required to design a roundabout manually using an industry-standard methodology. This advanced approach includes the creation of all the requisite components of a roundabout, including, tilted plane, alignments, profiles and corridors to produce an accurate and realistic roundabout.

Course content for Civil 3D Roundabout Design

  • Basic skills review: prospector, 3D surfaces, object viewer, quick profiler, feature lines, grading 
  • Create an existing surface profilecreate profiles through multiple surfaces 
  • Design alignments and profiles using IP and Element methods 
  • Use design criteria files, design speedstangency checks 
  • Create offset alignmentswidening areas 
  • Recap your skills for creating a basic subassembly 
  • Creating Offset Assemblies Create profiles through multiple surfaces 
  • Create regions, control frequenciescreate surfaces from corridors 
  • Use of corridor boundaries to control surfaces 
  • Learn a step-by-step approach for creating a roundabout in Civil 3D, including: 
  • Add / remove an approach, including descriptions 
  • Set relationships between approaching lanes and departing lanes 
  • Add / remove splinter islandsslip lanescrosswalks and rumble strips 
  • Check your roundabout for design errors 
  • Use the Roundabout Wizard to speed your design work 
  • Understand the possible limitations for the UK design of roundabouts 
  • Create bespoke reports from Civil 3D 
  • Create your own subassemblies 
  • Work with roundabout design with Autodesk Vehicle Tracking (AVT) 

Benefits of Civil 3D Training

Design better roundabouts

Become more efficient in your design tasks

Improve your workflow and work smarter

Have confidence in your junction design

Expected outcome

As a result of attending this training, you will be able to create a roundabout from scratch, use the Civil 3D Roundabout Wizard, use a centre point and centrelines of approach roads and geometric parameters to create a roundabout. 

 After completing the course, you can log into your personal student account and download your official Autodesk Certificate of Completion.
