Civil 3D Core Skills

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 - 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 2-day Civil 3D Core Skills course. This course will not cover drainage / pipe network design, basic junction design, visualisation, or shared coordinate systems. For a beginner's course covering these skills, please refer to our 3-day AutoCAD Civil 3D Essentials course.

Course content for Civil 3D Core Skills:

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

This course will not cover drainage / pipe network design, basic junction design, visualisation or shared coordinate systems.  For a beginners course covering these skills, please refer to our 3-day Civil 3D Essentials course.
