    Civil design

  • Corridor design (enhanced)

    Use corridor modeling functionality to create intelligent models for road and highway design and other transportation systems.

  • Pressure pipe networks

    AutoCAD Civil 3D includes modeling tools built for creating pressure pipe networks. 

  • Gravity pipe networks

    Use rules-based tools to lay out sanitary and storm drainage systems.

  • Grading

    Terrain models maintain dynamic relationships with related elements such as breaklines, corridor models, and grading objects.

  • Parcel design

    Combine automated parcel layout tools with geospatial and survey information to work through alternatives more quickly.

  • Bridge modeling

    The Bridge Module* enables modeling of bridges and bridge components.

  • Geotechnical modeling

    The Geotechnical Module* streamlines import and use of borehole data.

  • Rail track layout

    The Rail Layout Module* helps streamline layout of rail tracks.

  • Design concepts with InfraWorks

    Accelerate the civil design process using workflows that take advantage of interoperability with InfraWorks.

    Civil drafting & documentation

  • Drafting standards

    Use the extensive library of country-specific CAD styles in AutoCAD Civil 3D for your civil drafting and documentation needs.

  • Construction documentation (enhanced)

    Generate production plans, including annotated section sheets, profiles, and grading designs.

  • Map production

    Use cartographic mapping functionality to create maps that highlight specific features or information.

  • Reports and tables

    Gather real-time quantitative information from your model using dynamic tables for linework, volume information, and more.

    GPS survey & data collection

  • Data access and exchange (enhanced)

    Read, write, and convert data between widely used formats.

  • Surface modeling

    Terrain creation tools support a wide variety of surface data including DEM, LIDAR (light detecting and ranging), SHP, and ground survey.

  • Base map creation

    Survey functionality is fully integrated into workflows.

  • Reality capture (enhanced)

    Create point clouds using data from LIDAR (light detecting and ranging) scanning.

    Visualization & analysis

  • Geospatial analysis

    Take advantage of geospatial analysis capabilities to help inform planning studies.

  • Storm and sanitary analysis

    Storm and Sanitary Analysis software is included in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 and all editions of Infrastructure Design Suite 2015.

  • Model analysis

    Minimize redundancy in your workflow by analyzing the model you’ve already built. Get feedback in real time as you refine the design.

  • Visual analysis (enhanced)

    Develop reproductions of corridor models using render materials that correspond to corridor elements in the model, such as asphalt or concrete.

  • River & flood analysis

    Available with Infrastructure Design Suite 2015 Ultimate, the River and Flood Analysis Module* automates analysis and mapping functions.

  • AutoCAD Civil 3D with 3ds Max Design

    Create professional-quality visualizations using AutoCAD Civil 3D software with 3ds Max Design software for 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and compositing.


  • AutoCAD Civil 3D with Navisworks

    Gain better predictability using AutoCAD Civil 3D with Navisworks project review software.

  • AutoCAD Civil 3D and Revit Structure

    Improve collaboration between structural and civil designs using AutoCAD Civil 3D and Revit Structure Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for structural engineering.

  • AutoCAD Civil 3D and Vault Professional

  • Prior version compatibility (enhanced)

    Enhanced to include capability to open and edit AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 drawings in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 and 2013 civil engineering software.

  • Cloud Service

    Cloud-based collaboration

    Use A360 to open and save drawings in the cloud, where they can be shared and viewed with AutoCAD 360 mobile app.

  • Data shortcuts and references

    Connect civil engineering project teams by working from the same consistent, up-to-date project model from survey through construction documentation.
