OBJECTIVE OF COURSE
This course will teach users the principles of road overlay design using AutoCAD Civil 3D which addresses the design issues outlined above using a typical scheme as well as providing many more useful design tips. Trainees will learn how to take a design from survey to design completion with the creation of construction ready drawings, setout data and quantities for the overlay scheme. The course provides easy to follow steps for effectively designing a road overlay project on two of the more common types of overlays – rural crowned road and an urban overlay tying into existing footpaths and kerbs.
The most difficult types of projects to design in Civil 3D (and probably in general regardless of software) are those where you are designing around existing infrastructure. Road overlay design is a perfect example of this.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This course is not suitable for beginners with AutoCAD Civil 3D unless the trainee has previous experience of designing overlays using alternative means. Notes and videos of the material covered will be provided
Students should have a working knowledge of Autocad Civil 3D Road Design Esentials.
