AutoCAD Civil 3D, Drainage Design

This course is designed to give delegates a full understanding of creating drainage and utility networks using AutoCAD Civil 3D software, utilising other design tools such as MX and WinDes in conjunction with AutoCAD Civil 3D. The course will include a workflow for taking data into AutoCAD Civil 3D, layout of pipe networks, exporting for analysis, and updating in AutoCAD Civil 3D for drawing production. The course is designed to be taken in conjunction with the AutoCAD Civil 3D Foundation Skills course.

"Very good course and instructor was particularly helpful and informative." - Callum B.
