Autodesk AutoCAD civil 3D is a design and analytical software which helps catering the Civil Engineering problems during design and analysis and provides the best solution to the problems. It supports the Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows. Civil 3D allows you to store and share design data with existing Autodesk AutoCAD users. 

For the best practices of design and analysis with all complete 3D aspects, CIVIL 3D is created and implemented in the field of designing. It owns many more useful features than eagle point.

Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D – Applications / Uses

  • It is a professional design tool which perfectly designs the infrastructural project in accordance with the provided data.
  • It possesses Good workflow collaboration.
  • Building Information Model (BIM) [three-dimensional] can be created in detail with Revit collaboration.
  • Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D increases productivity and quality by minimizing time-consuming.
  • This tool gives an error-ridden manual drawing updates.
  • Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D offers a familiar design environment.
  • Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D enables the users to create two-dimensional cross-sections and add them to 3D models quickly and easily.
  • Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D can also create cross-sections far more quickly just by using the new layer manage tool.
  • Drafting and documentation is made much easier by using Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D.

AutoCAD civil 3D is also helpful in following ways:

Visual Analysis:

Visualization of a data is very significant. Since, visualization improves the design procedures and let the user observe more closely.


Surface Modeling:

You can create a model that combines 3D solids, surfaces, and mesh objects.  It is important to structure the surface for efficient processing.


Parcel Design:

You can create parcels r from drawing objects by using the parcel layout tools. Parcels can also be created automatically by the interaction of alignments and other parcels within a site.

Corridor Design:

You can use Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D corridor modeling to create flexible and configurable 3D models of corridors, such as roads, highways, and railways. Corridor model builds on and uses various Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D objects and data, including sub-assemblies, assemblies, alignments, surfaces, and profiles.


Easy Drafting:

Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D drafting procedure is almost similar to that of simple AutoCAD.

Geotechnical Modeling:

Display of geotechnical extension data to model subsurface for infrastructure design work. There is also an enhanced Geotechnical Property feature and Geotechnical Export command, which makes it even simpler to produce and share 3D geotechnical models with other software.


Storm and Sanitary Analysis:

Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D enables:

  • The analysis of roadway drainage systems (including curb and gutter storm water inlets)
  • Storm water sewer networks and detention ponds.
  • Water quality studies.
  • Subdivision drainage systems.
  • Modeling of drainage systems.
  • Sanitary sewers, lift stations, force mains, combined sewer.
  • Export pipe data from civil 3D software.
  • Working with Civil 3D and file formats.
  • Defining stage-storage table from civil 3D software.


Geospatial Analysis:

AutoCAD Map 3D is widely known as an engineering program for creating and managing CAD and spatial data. Geospatial analysis can help you derive more value from your data and aid in better decision making.

Model Analysis:

Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D completely analyze the model with respect to all the aspects pushing it to the successful designed model.

  • It can maintain large amount of consistent data.
  • It helps in project management, since it organizes the drawings, designs objects, and helps in work procedures to support a project team. Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D is a tool which starts the project from scratch and then it takes to the complete design procedures , its analysis by keeping in view the loads of considerations or limitations and then displays the result in a comprehensive manner.
