AutoCAD Civil 3D - Quick Start

Category: Computer Aided Design (CAD), AutoCAD

Working with Point Data

  • Use point data to create a site plan that is physically accurate 
  • Organise your point data to make it easier to work through design changes

Surface Modelling

  • Create a continuous surface that you can use to display contours and elevations accurately
  • Increase the accuracy of elevation calculations
  • Surface analysis –  watersheds, slopes, and elevations
  • Create a 3D representation of your data

Importing and Exporting Data

Site Development

  • Create horizontal alignments to represent buildings, roads, pavements, car parks, wetlands, site boundaries and other site features
  • Use profiles to slice through the terrain along an alignment to analyse your site
  • Use sections to slice through your site in a perpendicular direction View your design from three different perspectives –  plan, profile and section –  simultaneously, for better-informed site development


  • Transform a 2D schematic into a 3D site model by adding a directional surface to elevations
  • Save time by creating grading standards
  • Earthworks – review the cut and fill site volume calculations based on the terrain model you are shaping

Site Design and Your Revit Model (Optional)

  • Overview of integrating your AutoCAD Civil 3D data with your Revit Structure or Revit Architecture model
