Developing reliable road designs inside Civil 3D is a vital component of the Residential Site design process. From initial Alignment layout, through profiling, and the creation of 3D Corridors and finished road surfaces, residential road design is a must-have capability for every civil designer and technician. This course will take students through a step-by-step development of all the components in Civil 3D needed to complete a full road design. Whether you’ve never done road design with Profiles, Assemblies, or Corridors before, or you just want to improve your skills with those features, this course will help you get the productivity out of Civil 3D you need.
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 course 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.
