How to set up Civil 3D for AEC projects


Course overview

This course teaches users how to set up and efficiently manage a project in Civil 3D. You can enhance your drawing performance, ensure a dynamic, single-source design, and maximize team collaboration by using external references and data shortcuts in your Civil 3D project. Templates and styles can be used to standardize object display, layers, and drawing settings across a project. Once established, templates and styles can be imported or referenced across drawings. Civil 3D object catalogs can also be shared with other team members to ensure the same assets are available project-wide.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Manage data in a Civil 3D project using external references (XREFs) and data shortcuts (DREFs).
  • Use drawing templates to standardize layers, styles, labels, and object catalogs.
  • Reference or import styles across drawings and share Civil 3D object catalogs.
