AutoCAD Civil 3D


What is AutoCAD Civil 3D?

AutoCAD Civil 3d is an engineering software application that is used by land surveyors, civil engineers, and other professionals to design civil engineering projects. These projects can include road design, parking area, river development, pipe design, construction area design, etc. Designers can create 3D models and maintain dynamic relations between the objects in the drawing such as Alignments, profiles, corridors, surfaces, feature lines, and many more. All those powerful features make C3D one of the most widely spread software for infrastructure projects.

How is it Used?

Using only AutoCAD for creating large or even small infrastructural projects will take years of drawing, planning, and calculating different data, but with Civil 3D we have built-in tools that help engineers to complete their projects in a fraction of that time. land_surveying-512

C3D can be used by Land Surveyors to plan and develop their survey, create dynamic surfaces, calculate earthworks, use point clouds, and many others.


Road designers would get tons of benefits from Civil 3d. The software is equipped with a wide range of infrastructural tools and an engineer can design and manage the entire project with it.


It is also very capable of hydro-engineering, having unique tools for designing pipe networks, river development, canals, etc. There are also many add-ons that can even further improve calculations and design.
