Civil 3D 2014: The Complete Guide



AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution for civil engineering design and documentation. AutoCAD Civil 3D helps civil engineering professionals working on transportation, land development, and water projects stay coordinated and more easily and efficiently explore design options, analyze project performance, and deliver consistent, higher quality documentation - all within a familiar AutoCAD® environment. Perform geospatial analysis and extend Civil 3D model data for storm water analysis and interactive 3D simulations and visualizations. You can also generate quantity takeoff information and support automated machine guidance during construction. Civil 3D helps you gain the competitive advantage of BIM to deliver more innovative project solutions.

Civil 3D 2014: The Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of Civil 3D 2013 features and capabilities from the basics through to advanced components. Every course is designed to use all learning styles from text, audio, video, interactivity, quizzes and practical “Let Me Try” examples.

To get the most out of this course, we strongly recommend you review every topic within the course, and use all the learning styles to ensure you retain the important information within. We also encourage you to take all the progress tests to ensure you have retained the knowledge, and most importantly practice with the hundreds of real world, Let Me Try examples.

Access Term

12 Months


$495.00 - Guided courses qualify for Autodesk Certificates of Completion, and come with Technical Help Desk support. The course is structured to be completed in order from beginning to end. Once any topic is completed, you will have full access to it at any time for one year after registration, to use as a resource.

$395.00 - Flexible course delivery allows full access to any area of the course. Because it is not structured, it is not eligible for Autodesk Certificates of Completion, but it does contain all the same content as the Guided version, including the lecture quizzes for your own assessment. Flexible courses are also available to you for one full year after registration. This allows you to find what you need, whenever you need it.
