Course Description: The Civil 3D Fundamentals course is designed for Civil Engineers, Civil Designers and Surveyors who want to take advantage of the Autodesk Civil 3D software’s interactive, dynamic design functionality. The Autodesk Civil 3D software enables designers to quickly develop design alternatives through its model-based design tools. You will learn techniques enabling you to organize project data, work with points and point clouds, create and analyze surfaces, work and reference GIS formatted data, alignments, profiles, model road corridors, create parcel layouts, perform grading and volume calculation tasks, and layout pipe networks. Civil 3D supports Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow. TOPICS COVERED: * 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 *Work and reference GIS formatted data *Create and edit alignments *Create data shortcuts *Create sites 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.
