Increase your knowledge with the new AutoCAD Civil 3D Skill Builders. The topics covered in these papers provide advanced, solution-oriented information. Check back frequently, as new Skill Builders are posted on a regular basis.
AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010
The following skill builders are applicable to both AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2010 and AutoCAD® Civil® 2010 software, unless otherwise noted.
Creating an Intersection
Join Autodesk Technical Specialist Lucy Kuhns in this brief product tutorial, which shows you how to create an intersection within AutoCAD Civil 3D.
Using Dynamic GENIO Data with AutoCAD Civil 3D Shortcuts
Learn how to use the GENIO Import/Export Extension to bring model data from Bentley® MXROADS into AutoCAD Civil 3D. You will use data shortcuts to create a project structure in which GENIO (generalized import/output) data can be shared in multiple drawings and updated with a revised GENIO file.
Analyzing Storm Sewer Data with the Hydraflow Storm Sewers Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010
Learn how to use the Hydraflow Storm Sewers Extension to analyze a preliminary storm sewer design. You will use standard AutoCAD Civil 3D features to perform a preliminary hydrologic analysis, and then use the Hydraflow Storm Sewers Extension to perform a detailed hydraulic analysis. (April 2009)
Note: This skill builder does not apply to AutoCAD Civil.
Adding Cut and Fill Conditions to a Corridor Assembly
Learn how to use the Conditional Cut Or Fill subassembly to build a corridor assembly that applies different subassemblies depending on the cut or fill condition at a given station. The conditional subassembly enables you to reduce the number of corridor regions and assemblies that you have to maintain. (August 2008)
Sharing Corridor Assemblies in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009
Learn how to save corridor assemblies for easy reuse. In this skill builder, you will add assemblies to a tool palette, save the tool palette to a tool catalog in Content Browser, and then publish the tool catalog so that other users can access it. (April 2008)
Managing an AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 Project in Autodesk Vault
Learn how to set up an AutoCAD Civil 3D project, using Autodesk Vault to efficiently structure the project and manage the project drawings and shared objects. (October 2007)
Using Projection Grading and Feature Lines Effectively
Learn how to apply many of the practices described in the Grading Best Practices Supplement. The grading solution that is demonstrated in this Skill Builder shows how to use several of the grading tools together, and illustrates their strengths, limitations, and roles in the design process. (June 2007)
Draping an Image on a Surface
Import an image into a drawing, and then use a single command to convert the image to a render material and apply it to a surface object. In this exercise, you will drape an image on a surface, using the AutoCAD Civil 3D import and export features to quickly obtain a low-resolution image from Google Earth™ mapping service. (April 2007)
Work with label styles for alignments and parcels to learn how to modify label content, format, and orientation. In these exercises you will also use an expression in a label, modify dragged state format, and replace a set of labels with a table. (August 2006)
Profile and Profile View Styles and Labels
Examine profile and profile view display and stylization and create and edit various profile and profile view styles and labels. A sample schematic of a profile view is also included providing details on common styles and labels and explaining where to access the styles and labels to control their display. (May 2006)
Setting Superelevation for a Roadway
Create and edit superelevation settings for an alignment and analyze the effects of superelevation on an alignment, profile, and corridor of a roadway. After creating the settings, you can apply two-lane or four-lane roadway assemblies to create corridors that show the superelevation in the road design. (April 2006)
