Exploring AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 textbook introduces the users to the powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution, AutoCAD Civil 3D. The BIM solution in AutoCAD Civil 3D helps create and visualize a coordinated data model. This data model can then be used to design and analyze a civil engineering project for its optimum and cost-effective performance. This textbook has been written considering the needs of the professionals such as engineers, surveyors, watershed and storm water analysts, land developers and CAD technicians, who wish to learn and explore the usage and abilities of AutoCAD Civil 3D in their respective domains. This textbook provides comprehensive text and graphical representation to explain various concepts and procedures required in designing solution for various infrastructure works. The accompanying tutorials and exercises, which relate to the real world projects, help you better understand the tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D.

This textbook consists of 12 chapters that are organized in a pedagogical sequence covering Points Creations, Surface Creations, Google Earth Interoperability, Surface Analysis, Corridor Modeling, Pipe Networks, and so on. Each chapter begins with a command section that provides a detailed explanation of the commands and tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D.
The chapters in this textbook cover the basic as well as advanced concepts in AutoCAD Civil 3D such as COGO points, surface and surface analysis, alignments, profiles, sections, gradings, assemblies, corridor modeling, earthwork calculations, and pipe networks. This edition includes new tools and concepts such as the Pressure Network, Volumes dashboard and the Drive Tool that are available in the latest release of AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Special emphasis has been laid in compiling the tutorials which explain various designing procedures in detail. The textbook has been written with the tutorial point-of-view and the learn-by-doing theme, making it an ideal resource for learning at your convenience and pace.

Following are the additional features of this book:

  • Consists of 12 chapters that are arranged in pedagogical sequence covering the scope of the software
  • Consists of 752 pages, more than 750 illustrations, and a comprehensive coverage of concepts and tools
  • Consists of 36 tutorials and about 20 exercises which provide real-world experience of designing engineering projects using AutoCAD Civil 3D
