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
