Design Your Way from Field to Finish with This Expert Guide to Civil 3D

Understand concepts, create perfect designs, and manage every stage of the project with this thorough guide to Autodesk's powerful civil engineering software. Authored by experts with close ties to Autodesk and the Civil 3D community, this book features an in-depth, tutorial-based approach that is grounded in real-world examples so that you can get the most out of Civil 3D.

Full of advanced techniques and insider tips, this practical guide focuses squarely on how to use the software in a production environment—and provides insights, tips, and techniques you won't find anywhere else. Whether you're new to Civil 3D or want to expand your skills, this is the comprehensive tutorial and reference you'll use again and again.

Coverage includes:

  • Digging deeper into the Civil 3D tools to get more from the program
  • Working field to finish with in-depth information on field surveying

  • Applying simple techniques to tackle more complicated corridor construction

  • Managing team and project environments with Autodesk Vault

  • Creating construction documents in a flash with the Plan Production tool

  • Migrating your Land Desktop data to Civil 3D

  • Building project visualizations that don't break the bank or the schedule

About the Author

This book was written as a team effort from day one. Dana, Mark, Jason and I have covered the country and parts of the world training and teaching Civil 3D. Here’s a bit more about each of us.

Dana Probert, E.I.T., received her BSCE from Georgia Tech in 1998. Since then she has worked for consulting engineers in the United States and Canada, doing a variety of civil projects such as large planned residential communities, small subdivisions, commercial site design, stormwater management, road design, sanitary sewer networks, stream restoration projects, and municipal GIS. For most of this work, she has used AutoCAD-based products, including Land Desktop, Civil Design, Raster Design, Autodesk Map, and Civil 3D. Dana began instructing Civil 3D users in October 2004, and since then has used Civil 3D herself for subdivision layout design, road design, grading, stormwater management, and utility projects.

James Wedding, P.E., spent nearly a decade in the Dallas/Fort Worth land development industry before partnering with Engineered Efficiency in February 2006. A graduate of Texas Tech with a BSCE in 1997, he worked as a design engineer focused on private development. His design experience includes small commercial to multiphase single-family and master planned communities. James has served as president of the Preston Trail Chapter of the Texas Society of Professional Engineers, and was selected their Young Engineer of the Year in 2003.

Mark Scacco, P.E., has been a consultant in the land development and construction industry for over a decade and has experience in all phases of development, from conceptual preliminary design through final platting and construction. He has designed projects ranging from small, oneacre sites to 500-acre, multiphase subdivisions and is still currently active as a civil designer. Mark received his BSCE from Purdue University and is a registered Professional Engineer in Illinois. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the National Society of Professional Engineers, and the Geospatial Information & Technology Association.

Jason Hickey has 13 years of experience using Autodesk software for civil design. He started off his career surveying, and has progressed through the ranks of the industry since. With extensive experience in surveying, civil design, CAD management, and network administration, he fully grasps the concept of “field to finish.” Jason is a noted AUGI CAD Camp instructor and has trained companies both large and small in Civil 3D and, along with Mark, James, and Dana, maintains www.civil3d.com.

Measuring the Angular Momentum of Supermassive Black Holes (SpringerBriefs in Astronomy)

Measuring the spin distribution of supermassive black holes is of critical importance for understanding how these black holes and their host galaxies form and evolve over time, yet this type of study is only in its infancy.  This brief describes how astronomers measure spin in supermassive black holes using X-ray...

A Lighter Footprint: A Practical Guide to Minimising Your Impact on the Planet
I believe that global warming is the biggest issue facing humanity today – it represents a far greater threat than terrorism, fundamentalism, or nuclear war. I am not alone in this belief. Scientists and many policymakers agree that the global population must reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 60 per cent...
