Autodesk Civil 3D: Fundamentals for Land Developers (Grading)

The Autodesk Civil 3D software supports a wide range of civil engineering tasks and creates intelligent relationships between objects. The Autodesk Civil 3D: Fundamentals for Land Developers (Grading) training course is recommended for users that are required to create site grading plans using the Autodesk Civil 3D software. This course is also suited for managers who require an overview and understanding of this aspect of the Autodesk Civil 3D software.

Users use feature lines, grading tools, and corridors to create a commercial site containing a parking lot, building pads, pond, and simple sewage lagoon. An existing road has been included in the survey and a survey team collected the existing conditions. Users also work on a residential site to grade a small subdivision for proper grading of each lot.

The content in this course assumes the existing conditions are already processed. To learn how to create the existing conditions, refer to Autodesk Civil 3D: Fundamentals for Surveyors.
