Civil 3D

Comprehensive detailed design and documentation software for civil infrastructure.

What is Autodesk Civil 3D?

Civil 3D® design software empowers civil engineers to realise tomorrow’s infrastructure, today.

  • Work with a model-based environment for better design decisions and project quality.
  • Streamline documentation with a design-driven approach to plans production.
  • Harness the power of BIM (Building Information Modelling) for greater design co-ordination and project collaboration.

Why Use Civil 3D?

Accelerate civil design efficiencies

Work in a 3D model-based detailed design environment with tools for design automation, analysis and optimisation.

Streamline construction documentation

Automate plans production based on your 3D design model.

Leverage your investment in BIM

Enable multi-disciplinary team co-ordination and more integrated workflows throughout the project lifecycle.

What you can do with Civil 3D
