AutoCAD® Civil 3D® civil engineering software tools support Building Information Modeling (BIM) and help reduce the time it takes to design, analyze, and implement changes.
Relative elevation feature lines Dynamic offset profiles
Dynamic offset profiles Create dynamic offset profiles using a default cross slope. Modify them by editing the profile properties.
Connected alignments Create a new dynamically linked alignment and profile that transitions between 2 intersecting alignments and their profiles.
Pipe sizing and analysis Resize pipes and reset inverts, and compute the energy and hydraulic grade lines according to HEC-22 2009 standards.
Plan and profile sheet generation Create plan/plan and profile/profile sheets by including multiple plan or profile views on a single sheet.
Label property set data Add custom data to AutoCAD Civil 3D object labels by using property sets.
Traverse editor Create points, lines, and curves representing traverse legs and sideshots using COGO input and editing tools.
Corridor overlap resolution (bowties) Resolve corridor bowties in daylighting conditions.
InfraWorks interoperability Use preliminary design models within AutoCAD Civil 3D.
Pressure pipe networks Swap pressure network pipes, fittings, and appurtenances with parts of another size or type.
