OverviewPrerequisitesCourse Outline

This 4-day course will introduce students familiar with the Microstation platform to the base principals of AutoCAD Civil 3D and the necessary work flows to become efficient working with WisDOT surveyors standards. You will learn how to create and edit points and surfaces, understand how a dynamic model that contains all of the core geometry can integrate and leverage the data that is collected out in the field. When you make a change to the design, Civil 3D automatically updates the related objects, views, annotations, tables, etc. Keeping all design elements synchronized is therefore greatly simplified.


Upon completion of the class, the student will be able to We recommend 20 to 40 hours of additional practice with WisDOT videos.
