This practical training course covers the essentials of AutoCAD Civil 2D and 3D. Participants will gain skills on how to work with point data in AutoCAD, create and analyze a surface, model ways(roads) and import, export data. Practical exercises shall be administered so that the participants master how to create both 2D and 3D production drawings.

Course objectives:
The course intends to familiarize participants with the concepts and application of the essential function of AutoCAD Civil 3D and the outcomes of the course shall include:

  • Create, edit, analyze surfaces and view surfaces in 3D
  • Create horizontal alignments, profiles, corridors and cross-sections for roads
  • Calculate quantities for earthworks and layer works
  • Create sheets for plan, profiles and cross sections
  • Create intersection and road widening
  • Create grading solutions from multiple objects
  • Create setting out points


10 days
