AutoCAD Civil 3D, Foundation Skills

This course will provide an overview of the dynamic modelling concepts implemented in AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and will aim to provide users with a basic understanding of style-based infrastructure design. The course will guide delegates on the use of design tools for surface modelling and editing, horizontal and vertical road alignments, quantity take-off and design documentation.

This course is designed to be taken in conjunction with one or more of the other one-day Civil Design courses.

"Course was well organised with a clear structure of developing a project as being able to follow the process throughout. As I have not used Civil 3D before it was a very beneficial course to be on and I have learnt many skills that I will hopefully use throughout my career." - Sophie H
