Design better civil infrastructure

Civil 3D® software supports BIM (Building Information Modelling) for enhanced civil engineering design and construction documentation.

Civil 3D features

  • Civil design

    Perform faster design iterations and streamline time-consuming tasks.

  • Drafting and documentation

    Connect design to documentation to help boost productivity and deliver higher quality.

  • Visualisation and analysis

    Use visualisation, simulation and water analysis tools integrated with the design process to improve project delivery and decision making.

  • Collaboration

    Collaboration features help you to overcome team co-ordination and workflow challenges within civil infrastructure projects.

What's new

  • Profiles

    Offset profiles are more accurate with support for vertical curves.

  • Subassemblies

    Expanded corridor abilities with more than 60 additional subassemblies.

  • Sections

    Represent 3D solid objects more accurately with more control over visual properties.

  • Pressure pipes

    Meet more design standards with additional fittings and ancillaries.

Use Civil 3D with other Autodesk software

  • Connect design to detailed engineering

  • Integrate civil structure design

  • Improve site and building design co-ordination with shared co-ordinate systems

  • Civil 3D + InfraWorks (US Site) (2.12 min.)

    Model your project in InfraWorks then develop detailed engineering and analysis in Civil 3D.

  • Civil 3D + Revit (video: 50 sec.)

    Create bridge models in Civil 3D. Then, transition bridge parameters to Revit to your complete structural modelling.

  • InfraWorks (US site) + Civil 3D + Revit + Navisworks (US site) + more (video: 2.13 min.)

    Move a building model into a site design using shared reference points. Then, use that same model to more accurately visualise and analyse the design.
