Overview

Civil 3D Essentials is a unique learning resource that features concise, straightforward explanations and real-world, hands-on exercises and tutorials to teach new users the software’s core features and functions. Each chapter opens with a quick discussion of concepts and learning goals and then briskly moves into approachable hands-on exercises that readers can follow to gain confidence using the software. Each chapter features compelling full-color screenshots to illustrate tutorial steps, and chapters conclude with related suggested exercises to further reinforce the chapter’s lessons. Readers can download starting and ending files for the exercises and additional learning tutorials so that they can start anywhere in the book and compare their results with the pro’s.

This book begins by introducing Civil 3D’s interface and exploring how to best leverage a dynamic environment. Following a workflow-based approach that mirrors how projects progress in the real world, the book then guides readers through using survey data, modeling terrain using surfaces, designing in 2D using alignments and then displaying and annotating the alignments, and designing in 3D using corridors. The book then shows readers how to design, annotate, and display design cross-sections, boundaries using parcels, pipe networks, and surfaces. The book also explains how to best design new terrain and go from design to construction. Finally, a Certification Appendix assists readers in preparing for Certified Associate exam.

Based on the very real-world task of designing a residential subdivision, the hands-on exercises in Civil 3D Essentials will get all users up to speed on the program’s core functionality so they can quickly become productive with the software. The full-color book also features dataset downloads so readers can jump in anywhere as well as compare their work to the pro’s.
