Unformatted text preview: AutoCAD ® Civil 3D ® Explore. Analyze. Optimize. One Model. One Change. Multiple Updates. All Automatic. Building information modeling (BIM) is an integrated process for exploring a project’s key physical and functional characteristics digitally—before it’s built. AutoCAD Civil 3D software is Autodesk’s building information modeling solution for civil engineering. The software creates coordinated, data-rich models that enable you to conduct analysis from the earliest stages of design; better visualize and simulate real-world appearance, performance, and cost; and document designs more accurately. Use an integrated process built on a coordinated, consistent, digital model for design, analysis, visualization, documentation, and construction. A Powerful Building Information Modeling Solution for Civil Engineering AutoCAD Civil 3D produces a single model, with intelligent and dynamic data, enabling you to more quickly make a design change at any stage of the process. Make better-informed decisions and choose design alternatives based on analytical and performance results. More quickly and efficiently produce visualizations that remain in sync with design changes as they are made. The model automatically reflects any changes to drafting and annotation throughout the project. Earthwork Calculations The software enables you to more quickly process earth volumes between your existing and proposed surfaces using composite volume or average end area methods. Generate mass haul diagrams for analyzing the distance over which cut and fill can balance, the amount of material to be moved, the direction of movement, and the identification of borrow pits and dump sites. Criteria-Based Geometric Design More quickly lay out plan and profile alignment geometry with design criteria based on government standards or customized for clients’ needs. Design constraints alert users when standards violations occur, providing immediate feedback so necessary modifications can be made. Purpose-Built Tools for Road and Highway Design Transportation-specific design tools offer a more efficient way to design roads and highways. Build interactive intersection models that dynamically update. Focus on optimizing the design and know the production drawings and annotations stay up to date. Lay out roundabouts more quickly, including signage and striping, based on common design standards. Quantity Takeoff Analysis Extract material quantities from corridor models, or assign material types to lightposts, landscaping, and more. Run reports, or utilize built-in pay item lists to help generate bid-ready contract documents. Make better decisions about the cost of the project earlier in the design process with more accurate quantity takeoff tools....
