Final Site Design in Civil 3D

Completing a Final Site Design in a residential project is no small task. It requires much more than basic Civil 3D skills. It requires advanced knowledge for refining surfaces, handling intersections and other complex road conditions, along with detailed section and volume controls. This course focuses on helping students understand, and actively apply, the most commonly misunderstood and under-used Civil 3D tools on a practical Residential Site Project. Fine tuning the initial site design for accuracy and detail is the capability that will take you - and your staff - from CAD user to Civil Designer.

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the course progresses.

Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2020. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version.

Recording: Registrants for this course will receive access to a recording of each session for 48 consecutive hours. Access will start the next business day after the session ends.
