    How to Set Up Civil 3D for AEC Projects

    This course teaches users how to set up and efficiently manage a project in Civil 3D. You can enhance your drawing performance, ensure a dynamic, single-source design, and maximize team collaboration by using external references and data shortcuts in your Civil 3D project. Templates and styles can be used to standardize object display, layers, and drawing settings across a project. Once established, templates and styles can be imported or referenced across drawings. Civil 3D object catalogs can also be shared with other team members to ensure the same assets are available project-wide.

    Existing Conditions Modeling for Civil Projects

    A full understanding of the existing conditions can help you design a better site and access to it. In this module, learn how to take advantage of point clouds for modeling the existing conditions. Also learn how to take advantage of the work done by other people like the GIS department, architect, and utility companies/departments.

    Coordination and Collaboration for Civil Engineers

    When architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, and civil engineers all collaborate on a project, they must share information about the design, so that all teams are working with the same assumptions. In this module, you learn better ways to collaborate to be more efficient with BIM.

    Analysis for Civil Projects

    Understanding how your design affects the natural and physical environment can help you improve the design earlier when the cost of changes is lower. From understanding how hard surfaces on the site will cause more runoff to understand how window placement will affect energy use, this module introduces you to the various type of analysis you can do to make your design better.

    Communicate the Design Intent on Civil Projects

    Helping key stakeholders and the general public clearly understand the project scope can reduce project costs and help you win better work. Storytelling is an essential part of the visualization process, it excites the audience. Develop a process that starts by identifying audiences, the outcome they want to achieve for their visualization and ensure the outcomes are met. In this module, you explore several different options for communicating the design intent to stakeholders. Practice rendering images and creating videos of walkthroughs to better communicate the design. In addition, you learn how to cut plan and profile sheets and better utilize Sheet Set Manager for communicating to contractors how the project should be built.
