Civil 3D Beyond the Basics

This intermediate-level training course is your opportunity to raise your game with your Civil 3D skills. You will learn a broad range of time-saving techniques that will allow you to create project designs more efficiently. These new skills will include using Civil 3D standards, data shortcuts, advanced surface creation, subassembly tools, parts lists and pipe rules, sheet set properties, quantity take-offs, volume calculations, and project visualisation

Benefits of Civil 3D Beyond the Basics Training

Communicate your design intent by driving along a corridor
Build intelligence into your designs by setting up predefined rules
Better project management through an appreciation of data shortcuts
Better designs through standards

Expected Outcome

After completing this course, you will be have the real-world project skills that any professional Civil 3D user should have. By applying standards and rules to Civil 3D, you will automate many of the manual tasks that are eating up your design time. You will also be better equipped to manage and manipulate surfaces, work with assemblies and subassemblies, speed up drawing annotations, and create compelling visualisations.
