Developing site design controls and surfaces in Civil 3D is a vital skill set, but it’s one that’s all too often left to a “learn as you go” process. Civil 3D provides designers with a powerful set of tools to generate fast, detailed, and reliable site conditions for both existing and proposed surfaces. This class will cover all site related processes in Civil 3D from understanding surface components to advanced Grading and Subdivision design tools.
This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.
Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2023. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version.
Recording: Registrants for this course will receive access to a recording of each session for 7 consecutive days. Access will start the next business day after the session ends.
