AutoCAD Civil 3D

Introduction

Civil 3D is built for civil engineers, drafters, designers, and technicians working on transportation, land development, and water projects. Stay coordinated and explore design options, analyze project performance, and deliver more consistent, higher-quality documentation—all within a familiar AutoCAD® software environment.

Surveying

Survey functionality is fully integrated in Civil 3D, so you have a more consistent environment for all tasks, including direct import of raw survey data, least squares adjustment, editing of survey observations, and automated creation of survey figures and surfaces. You can create and edit survey figure vertices interactively, and identify and edit crossing break lines to avoid potential issues, resulting in points, survey figures, and surfaces that can be used throughout the project.

Surfaces and Grading

With Civil 3D, you can build surfaces from traditional survey data, such as points and break lines. Utilize large data sets from aerial photogrammetric, laser scanning, and digital elevation models by taking advantage of the surface reduction tools. View the surface as contours or triangles, or create elevation and slope banding analysis. Use surfaces as a reference for creating intelligent objects that maintain dynamic relationships to the source data. Team members can use the powerful day lighting and grade projection tools to generate surface models for any type of grading projection.

Parcel Layout

The software enables you to generate parcels by converting existing AutoCAD® software entities or by using more flexible layout tools to automate the process. A change to one parcel is automatically reflected in neighboring parcels. Advanced layout tools include options for measuring frontage at an offset and laying out parcels by minimum depth and width.

Corridor Modeling

Corridor modeling combines horizontal and vertical geometry with customizable cross sectional components to create a parametrically defined, dynamic 3D model of roads and other transportation systems. Use the included subassemblies—ranging from travel lanes, sidewalks, and ditches to complex lane components—or create your own based on a design standard. The model can be easily modified via visual interaction or by changing input parameters that define the roadway typical section. Unique characteristics of each subassembly allow the 3D model to target known features. 

Earthwork Calculations

The software enables you to more quickly process earth volumes between your existing and proposed surfaces using composite volume or average end area methods. Generate mass haul diagrams for analyzing the distance over which cut and fill can balance, the amount of material to be moved, the direction of movement, and the identification of borrow pits and dump sites. 

Criteria-Based Geometric Design

More quickly lay out plan and profile alignment geometry with design criteria based on government standards or customized for clients’ needs. Design constraints alert users when standards violations occur, providing immediate feedback so modifications can be made.

Purpose-Built Tools for Road and Highway Design

Transportation-specific design tools offer a more efficient way to design roads and highways. Build interactive intersection models that dynamically update. Focus on optimizing the design and know the production drawings and annotations stay up to date. Lay out roundabouts more quickly, including signage and striping, based on common design standards.

Quantity Takeoff Analysis

Extract material quantities from corridor models, or assign material types to light posts, landscaping, and more. Run reports, or utilize built-in pay item lists to help generate bid-ready contract documents. Make better decisions about the cost of the project earlier in the design process with more accurate quantity takeoff tools.
