AutoCAD Civil 3D Essentials

Course Description

Course Length = 4 days

CPC PDH Credits = 28

This course is designed for Civil Engineers and Surveyors who want to take advantage of the AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software’s interactive, dynamic design functionality. The AutoCAD Civil 3D software permits the rapid development of alternatives through its model-based design tools.

Students will learn techniques enabling them to organize project data, work with points, create and analyze surfaces, model road corridors, create parcel layouts, perform grading and volume calculation tasks, and layout pipe networks.

Topics Covered:

  • Learn the AutoCAD Civil 3D user interface.
  • Create and edit parcels and print parcel reports.
  • Create points and point groups and work with survey figures.
  • Create, edit, view, and analyze surfaces.
  • Create and edit alignments.
  • Create data shortcuts.
  • Create sites, profiles, and cross-sections.
  • Create assemblies, corridors, and intersections.
  • Create grading solutions.
  • Create gravity fed and pressure pipe networks.
  • Perform quantity takeoff and volume calculations.
  • Use plan production tools to create plan and profile sheets.

This description is a guideline. Course topics and duration may be modified based upon the knowledge and background of the course participants.
