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
