Using Project Explorer for AutoCAD Civil 3D

$525 per person (in the US and Canada) | 8 CPC/CEU credits

Project Explorer is a powerful tool for managing, editing, validating, and reporting on all your AutoCAD Civil 3D design objects. It's one simple interface to control all your alignments, corridors, pipes, surfaces, and just about any other Civil 3D object and it’s now included as a full part of your AutoCAD Civil 3D design software! Project Explorer is an ideal way to quickly and accurately update and report on all your design information. It’s a great tool for all CAD users, from beginners to advanced designers, but it’s also a perfect way for engineers and managers to review, report on, and directly modify designs without getting bogged down in the CAD process. Project Explorer is the most important tool added to the Civil 3D system in the last decade and it’s an absolute must to understand and use it in every aspect of civil/site design.
