AC209 - Engineering Design Using AutoCAD Civil 3D Course


Introduction

AutoCAD Civil 3D is one of the great technological success in Computer Aided designs! AutoCAD Civil 3D is a civil engineering design and documentation software that supports Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows by extending the value of the model. With a focus on optimizing a variety of civil infrastructure project workflows, such as roads and highways, land development, rail, airports and water, Civil 3D helps civil infrastructure project teams improve delivery, maintain more consistent data and processes, and respond faster to project changes. Civil 3D helps organizations streamline time-consuming tasks such as intersections, roundabout and corridor design, parcel layout, pipes and grading with specific tools and customizable design standards.

Course Overview

Autodesk Civil 3D is a design and documentation solution for civil engineering. By learning to use Civil 3D, you can improve project performance, maintain consistent data and processes, and respond faster to change. This course introduces the basics of the software to new Civil 3D users. The instructor shows how to model a surface, lay out parcels, and design geometry, including the making of horizontal alignments and vertical profiles. Next, demonstrates how to create corridors, cross-sections. It covers working with feature lines and grading objects, and wraps up by providing an overview of the plan production tools. Topics include: Navigating the Civil 3D interface, using point groups and description keys, importing survey data, managing figures, Creating and analyzing surfaces, creating parcels, working with alignments, working with profiles and profile views, creating basic and advanced corridors, using an intersection object, making sample lines, cross-sections, and section views, creating and editing feature lines.
