What You Will Learn
This book covers the basic skills and concepts needed to begin using Civil 3D to
design land development projects. The concepts include those related to Civil 3D
as well as those related to civil engineering and surveying in general. It doesn’t
cover all topics or all Civil 3D features, but it provides a solid foundation you can
use to perform basic tasks. This foundation can then serve as a stepping-off point
as you learn more advanced skills and work toward an in-depth understanding of
Civil 3D.
The first two chapters will give you a basic understanding of Civil 3D and help
you to understand and appreciate how it “thinks.” The remaining 16 chapters will
teach you how to use the tools that Civil 3D provides to complete a typical land
development design project.
