Our Top 3 Tutorials for AutoCAD Civil 3D


Of all of the specialized versions of AutoCAD that we cover, we find that there’s a huge demand for AutoCAD Civil 3D training. The Autodesk program puts a wide assortment of practical planning, design, and analytic tools into the hands of engineers who need it most. To help you get started with this powerful toolset used by public sector and private contractors alike, here are our three most popular free tutorials we’ve posted on our YouTube channel. As a bonus to readers of our blog, we’re now sharing the corresponding project files for each video that previously have been only available with the full course.


We offer both a Civil 3D 2013 and Civil 3D 2014 training course, both presented by Seth Cohen, and featuring hands-on examples and workflow demonstrations just as detailed as the tutorials you’ll see below.

Earthwork Volumes

In this video that now has over 17,000 views, Seth shows how to create an Earthwork volume report and table. It’s the first lesson from Chapter 14 of our Civil 3D 2014 course. To download the work file he uses, CLICK HERE.

Grading Objects

Seth shows how to create grading objects by accessing and modifying criteria. You’ll see how to create grades based on feature lines within a drawing. This sample is from Chapter 11, which also explores other aspects of grading. For the work file, CLICK HERE.

Laying Out a Pipe Network

You’ll learn how to get started with the program’s pipe network tools in this tutorial from Chapter 12 of the full course. Seth uses the example of a storm drainage system to highlight relevant settings and tools. To download the project file CLICK HERE.
