Autodesk Civil 3D® design software empowers civil engineers to meet complex infrastructure challenges in a 3D model-based environment.
Accelerate design and documentation
Advance design automation
Improve collaboration and coordination
Improve design quality with a dynamic 3D model–based design environment and design-driven documentation environment.
Reduce errors and rework by exchanging data across multidisciplinary teams while maintaining standards and accuracy.
Share data and models freely between products using the common IFC format(s).
Civil 3D includes purpose-built tools for critical civil engineering disciplines. See how Civil 3D can help you design and build better roads and highways, sites, and rail projects.
Deliver design and construction documentation for road and highway, site design, rail, and bridge projects. Reduce overall design time with faster modeling for surfaces, corridors, terrain, and more.
Incorporate GIS data into your design with sustainability and customer satisfaction in mind. View and share data securely in the cloud to improve collaboration with all project stakeholders.
Seamlessly exchange data across multidisciplinary teams while maintaining standards and accuracy to reduce rework and improve customer satisfaction.
