Surfaces and grading, Part 1

Module overview

When working in Civil 3D, you use various surfaces and feature lines to define the drawing, as well as perform a surface analysis. Creating and modifying sites and grading models are also key aspects of a civil engineering project.

After completing this module, you'll learn how to:

  • Create, display, analyze, and label surfaces
  • Understand the key characteristics of surfaces
  • Use data and understand its role in surface creation
  • Use parameters to control the displace settings of a surface
  • Use feature lines and grading groups to modify existing surfaces
