Drawing Templates and Styles in Civil 3D​

Module overview

Welcome to the Drawing Templates and Styles in Civil 3D module. When we design, we want our drawing to display a certain way for different phases of a project. These styles can come from Autodesk templates, be developed to use your company standards, or come from country kits. When using a template, it can include layers, display styles for Civil 3D objects, drawing settings, etc. In this module, you will learn how different styles affect the appearance of your model. 

You can import styles from other drawings or templates, or reference styles across drawings. There are also special templates available for plan production. 

This module takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. By the end of the module, you should be able to:  

  • Understand the nature of Civil 3D templates 
  • Understand why Civil 3D projects may use more than one template 
  • Adjust Civil 3D object styles and label styles for intent and purpose 
  • Share styles across projects and team members 
  • Use special templates for plan production 
  • Understand how to use reference templates
