Introduction to Civil 3D

This course provides the student with a detailed, hands-on introduction to the core functionality of Autodesk Civil 3D®. Students move through the course following an actual design project, processing existing conditions information from a variety of sources, creating a working Civil 3D project, and moving through layout and design phases of the project, including road and site grading. The concepts explored are pertinent to any applications of Civil 3D: residential and commercial private development, municipal or highway engineering, or specialized applications, such as landfill, stream restoration or mining.

The classes within the course run sequentially, with Intermediate following Essentials. Students can treat the course program as a comprehensive introduction to the program taken consecutively, or as two different classes taken at different times.

The dataset for each class is available for download from an FTP site upon its conclusion. The files provided include the Civil 3D template drawing used in the class, which is a valuable resource itself.

CivilTraining, LLC’s courses are registered Continuing Education classes with the AIA and have received approval in meeting continuing education/professional development requirements for numerous states. Note: Each CivilTraining, LLC course provides relevant continuing education/professional development approval criteria.

Autodesk Civil 3D Intermediate (3 Days)

This second class in the Autodesk Civil 3D® training series continues in the use of model-based design through the application of road and street profiles and their grading applications, as well as general site grading.

Continuing the project introduced in Civil 3D Essentials, and building from the layout and alignment tools introduced in that class, the Civil 3D Intermediate class focuses on the development and grading of proposed conditions through Civil 3D Profiles, Corridors and Site Grading.

This class uses a drawing and project strategy employed successfully in Civil 3D to manage the large proposed models the program creates, isolating them from the resultant grading through the Civil 3D project. The class examines a variety of grading options for basic road and street geometry, as well as other corridor applications. The session then examines site grading applicable to building pads, parking lots, cul-de-sacs or other non-linear grading applications, and volume calculations produced from Civil 3D corridor and surface information.

Topics include:
  • Civil 3D Drawing Organization and the Civil 3D Project
  • Profiles in Civil 3D
  • Corridor and Road Design - Simple Corridors
  • Corridor and Road Design - Complex Corridors
  • Design Data Output to the Civil 3D Project
  • Site Grading Tools in Civil 3D
  • Site Grading with Feature Lines and Grading Groups
  • Complex Site Grading with Feature Lines and Corridor Grading
  • Sections in Civil 3D
