AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014

Video Description

In this Civil 3D 2014 training course from expert trainer Seth Cohen, you will learn how to use the tools and techniques available to you in this civil engineering design and documentation solution software. This tutorial is designed for beginners, and no previous experience with Civil 3D software is required.
After a quick tour around the interface to acquaint yourself with the different toolspaces, you jump right into applying those tools to a real project. Some of the topics that are covered in these lessons include; working with points, using survey databases, managing surfaces, creating alignments, managing assemblies, and corridor modelling. This video training also covers grading, pipe networks, quantity takeoffs, creating sheets, working with point clouds, and much more. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
Once you have completed this video based training for Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014, you will have a comprehensive understanding of how to apply the tools in this software to real-world projects. You will be comfortable working within Civil 3D, and be able to work on your own projects with confidence!
