Building information modeling (BIM) is an integrated process for exploring a project’s key physical and functional characteristics digitally—before it’s built. Civil 3D software is Autodesk’s building information modeling solution for civil engineering. The software creates coordinated, data-rich models that enable you to conduct analysis from the earliest stages of design; better visualize and simulate real-world appearance, performance, and cost; and document designs more accurately.
Use an integrated process built on a coordinated, consistent, digital model for design, analysis, visualization, documentation, and construction.
Civil 3D produces a single model, with intelligent and dynamic data, enabling you to more quickly make a design change at any stage of the process. Make better-informed decisions and choose design alternatives based on analytical and performance results. The model automatically reflects any changes to drafting and annotation throughout the project.
