Civil 3D 161 – AutoDesk Civil 3D Grading

Class Description

This 2 day AutoCAD Civil 3D course is designed to support a wide range of civil engineering tasks. The AutoCAD Civil 3D: Grading training course is recommended for users that are required to create site grading plans using the AutoCAD Civil 3D software. This training course is also ideal for managers that require a basic overview and understanding of this aspect of the AutoCAD Civil 3D software.

Users use feature lines and grading tools to create a commercial site containing a parking lot, building pad, pond, and simple sewage lagoon. An existing road has been included in the survey and a survey team collected the existing conditions. Users also work on a residential site to grade a small subdivision for proper grading of each lot.

Suggested Prerequisites

We highly recommend you have a working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology which can be obtained in our AutoCAD Essentials.  We also suggest that you have the AutoCad software before starting the class.  You can purchase the software or obtain a trial version of it from the AutoDesk web site.
