AutoCAD Civil 3D software is a civil engineering design and documentation solution that supports Building Information Modeling workflows.

It is used for designing, drafting and documentation, analysis, defining workflows, surveying and mapping of civil projects. AutoDesk’s AutoCAD Civil 3D infrastructure professionals can better understand project performance, maintain more consistent data and processes, and respond faster to change.

AutoCAD Civil 3D tools support Building Information Modeling (BIM) processes and help reduce the time it takes to design, analyze, and implement changes.

We help you master some of the following features of Civil 3D:

• Design: For corridor design, pressure pipe networks, gravity pipe networks, grading, parcel design, bridge modeling, geotechnical modeling, and rail track layout

• Analysis: For advanced mapping and analysis functionality, storm water management using dynamic model, dynamic QTO and earthwork calculations, transforming civil design models with visualization.

• Drafting & Documentation: For drafting standards, construction documentation, map production, and for reports and tables

• Surveying & Mapping: For surface modeling, base map creation, and reality capture.
