Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WDOT) began using AutoCAD Civil 3D software with the 2010 release. Since that time, more of the department's internal users have switched over and WDOT has switched platforms to 2012 and, more recently, to 2014. As WDOT's use and user base have grown, the department has learned many lessons that have effected how it has moved forward. We will explore these lessons, specifically those that come from the development of standard concepts for use of AutoCAD Civil 3D software and the ways in which those concepts are put into practice in project workflows.
- Understand the importance of a coherent project structure
- Understand the concept of the end-result design
- Understand the importance and efficiency of the single point of truth structure
- Understand the capabilities of dividing larger projects
