Civil 3D course for civil works - Level 3

Advanced alignments, surfaces, cross sections. Learn to create designs and basic linear works with Autocad Civil3D software applied to Surveying and Civil Works

This is the third of a set of 4 courses called "Autocad Civil3D for Topography and Civil Works" that will allow you to learn how to handle this fabulous Autodesk software and apply it to different projects and construction works. Become an expert in the software and you will be able to generate earthworks, calculate materials and construction prices and create great designs for roads, bridges, sewers, among others.

This set of courses has been the product of hours of dedication, work and effort, collecting the most important data on the subject of Civil and Topographic Engineering, summarizing large amounts of theory and making them practical, so that you can learn in an easy and easy way. Fast with short but specific classes for each topic and practice with all the (real) data and examples we provide here.

If you want to start managing this software, participating in this course will save you weeks of work by investigating on your own what we have already investigated, doing the tests we have done, and making the mistakes we have already made.

Let us introduce you to this world of Autocad Civil3D, which is a powerful tool to reduce large amounts of time designing and calculating and facilitating your work in the professional field.

Who is it for?

This course is aimed at technicians, technologists and professionals with knowledge in Topography, civil works or related, who want to start in the world of road design, linear works, earthworks and construction or those who want to strengthen their skills in the management of this powerful tool.
