Civil 3D 2023: Fundamentals

The Autodesk® Civil 3D® 2023: Fundamentals guide is designed for civil engineers and surveyors who want to take advantage of the Autodesk Civil 3D software’s interactive, dynamic design functionality. The Autodesk Civil 3D software permits the rapid development of alternatives through its model-based design tools.

In Part 1: Essentials (chapters 1 to 10), you will learn techniques enabling you to organize project data, work with points, create and analyze surfaces, model road corridors, perform grading and volume calculation tasks, and lay out pipe networks.

Part 2: Beyond the Basics (chapters 11 to 18) looks at configuring the software, Civil 3D's styles and settings, alternative ways to create surfaces, and creating parcels. It also goes beyond the basics for more advanced corridor and pipe network design. Finally, it covers customizing sheet set properties, performing quantity takeoffs, and visualization.

Topics Covered:

  • Learn the Autodesk Civil 3D 2023 user interface.
  • Create points and point groups and work with survey figures.
  • Create, edit, view, and analyze surfaces.
  • Create and edit alignments.
  • Create sites, profiles, and cross-sections.
  • Create assemblies, corridors, and intersections.
