Grading: Anything's Possible
Collapse Expand


You've just received a project that includes grading, and you wonder if it's possible. The project includes access roads with cross slopes onto a complicated site, and it calls for complex drainage swales and detention ponds. You will need to cut into a steep and irregular hillside while maintaining proper drainage, and you'll have to add integrate and detailed grading to meet project demands. And then, as is the case with most projects, there are changes and additions. Oh, and the end product must be a cohesive 3D model. My objective is to help you turn intimidation and fear (and maybe even some misconceptions) about approaching such complex grading challenges using AutoCAD Civil 3D software into confidence and conviction. We will look at using corridors, feature lines, 3D polylines, and many of the grading tools, and we will examine some techniques to tackle grading and make anything possible.

Key Learnings

  • Lose your fears of grading in AutoCAD Civil 3D software
  • Learn how to use corridors, grading objects, feature lines, 3D polylines, and many of the grading tools for complex grading tasks
  • Learn how to create complex surfaces from grading
  • Learn how to modify and add to surfaces
