Learning AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013

Video Description

In this training course for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013, Seth Cohen introduces you to the powerful features and tools available to you in this BIM (Building Information Modeling) software. This tutorial is designed for the beginner, and you do not need any previous Civil 3D experience in order to get the most out of this training.

You will start by learning the basics of the interface - the different toolspaces, using the palettes and basic commands. Sean guides you through step-by-step, each new lesson building on the previous ones. You will learn about points, using survey databases, adding, editing and modifying surfaces, using alignments, sharing your data, and designing profiles. As the tutorial continues, you cover assemblies, corridor modeling, grading, pipes, using cross sections and much more.

By the conclusion of this computer based training course on Civil 3D 2013, you will understand how to apply Civil 3D to your engineering and design projects. Working files are included to allow you to work alongside the author throughout the training course.
