Getting Started in Civil Site Design

Civil Site Design is the most powerful civil/site design tool on the market today and it works inside AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and even Civil 3D. This course will take new users of Civil Site Design thru the most common processes they need, to unlock levels of productivity they’ve never had before. We will cover the entire site design process in CSD, from import of survey points, thru building 3D surfaces, grading, road design and development of underground utilities. Civil Site Design processes will make your job far simpler, provided you know how to properly use them to get the time savings you need.

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 class progresses.


Note: Instructor will present using AutoCAD 2020, and that version is recommended for all students, but the processes are compatible with BricsCAD and Civil 3D.
