Video Description

Designing roads is a complex engineering process, and Civil 3D is a powerful tool that aids you in this process. Civil 3D comes with a dynamic modelling system that combines a variety of its easy-to-use tools to automate tasks and generate all the necessary components needed to design and build a road.

This course starts off with an overview of the interface of Civil 3D, showing you how Civil 3D applies settings and styles to automate object placement. Building on this knowledge, you will learn to create and edit surfaces, alignments, and profiles. Once you have the core components to roadway modeling ready, you will discover how to create assemblies and subassemblies which are the building blocks of your corridor. You will then build your corridor model, and learn how to use the intersection design wizard to create a complete road.

Finally, you will learn how to lay out and edit a pipe network. By the end of this course, you will be able to apply what you've learnt to create all Civil 3D objects necessary to build a road.

Style and Approach

Packt video courses are designed to cover the breadth of the topic in short, hands-on, task-based videos. Each course is divided into short manageable sections, so you can watch the whole thing or jump to the bit you need. The focus is on practical instructions and screencasts showing you how to get the job done.

Using concise step-by-step visual instructions, this course provides you with an understanding of the basic workflows needed to create Civil 3D objects with the help of a real-world project.

What You Will Learn

  • Examine the Civil 3D interface and its components to effectively use the settings and style system
  • Create surfaces from survey data and standard AutoCAD objects
  • Edit the surface properties and add surface labels such as spot elevations, slope labels, and contour labels
  • Design and edit alignments and use additional labeling tools such as station offset, tangent, and curve labels
  • Make a surface profile which is dynamically linked to the existing ground
  • Build assemblies and subassemblies which are the building blocks for a corridor model
  • Construct a corridor model and analyze its anatomy
  • Plan an intersection and use different ways to review and edit the intersection corridor model
  • Lay out pipe networks and run an interference check with other pipe networks in your project
