Design better civil infrastructure

AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software supports BIM (Building Information Modeling) for enhanced civil engineering design and construction documentation.

AutoCAD Civil 3D features

  • Civil design

    Perform faster design iterations and streamline time-consuming tasks.

  • Drafting and documentation

    Connect design to documentation to help boost productivity and deliver higher quality.

  • Visualization and analysis

    Use visualization, simulation, and water analysis tools integrated with the design process to improve project delivery and decision making.

  • Collaboration

    Collaboration features help you overcome team coordination and workflow challenges within civil infrastructure projects.

What's new

  • Relative feature lines

    Obtain elevation feature lines from a surface or relative to a surface, so feature lines update with changes to the surface.

  • Dynamic offset profiles

    Create dynamic offset profiles using a default cross slope. Modify them by editing the profile properties.

  • Connected alignments

    Create a new dynamically linked alignment and profile that transitions between 2 intersecting alignments and their profiles.

  • Pipe sizing and analysis

    Resize pipes and reset inverts, and compute the energy and hydraulic grade lines per HEC-22 2009 standards.

Customer stories

Civil 3D was used to help create visualizations for project proposal
