Course Outline

Introduction to Civil Site Design. Start your exploration with an introduction to Civil Site Design, gaining an understanding of the command interface and Civil Site Design Toolspace.  Expand your introduction to include labelling of Civil Site Design objects.

Civil Site Design Points. Dive into the COGO point import and creation process to create surfaces.  Learn how to efficiently create, manage, and leverage Civil Site Design COGO Points and point groups.

Civil Site Design Surfaces. Explore the power of TIN surface modelling in Civil Site Design, including surface analysis and volume comparisons. Gain hands-on experience in creating and manipulating surfaces, essential for representing the existing terrain and forming the basis for subsequent design work.

Civil Site Design Alignments. Delve into the toolset around creating and editing alignments in Civil Site Design, a fundamental aspect of road and string design. Learn how to manage alignment labelling, tables and display, ensuring the accurate representation of linear features in your projects.

Civil Site Design Grading and Modelling. Gain a fundamental introduction to grading within Civil Site Design and modelling design strings, acquiring the skills to manipulate the terrain for optimal design outcomes. 

3D Model Viewing. Explore your surface models in a fully rendered 3D environment to obtain a complete understanding of your project and create 3D outputs. 

Pre Requisites

  

Attendees should have a working knowledge of how to operate AutoCAD/BricsCAD.  During the course attendees will be expected to manage layer controls, create polylines, navigate layout tabs and use other CAD editing functionality.

 

Note To Civil 3D Operators

This course has been created to introduce AutoCAD and BricsCAD users to Surface, COGO Point and Alignment functionality in Civil Site Design, specific to the AutoCAD and BricsCAD platforms.  If you are a Civil 3D user looking for Civil Site Design training, and do not have a working knowledge of Civil 3D for managing COGO Points, surfaces and alignments, we recommend attending the Civil 3D | Fundamentals course instead of this course.
