Design League of Rasantes in Civil 3D Design of flush links in Civil 3D using two features: Feature Lines and Quick Profile.
Create Referenced Text for Intersection Design To design an intersection of roads, we need to know the elevations of the profiles at points where they coincide with each other. Referenced text tags (available from 2008 version) give us a very quick way to get this information.
Configure Tool Palettes in Civil 3D We will perform the Configuration and customization of Tool Palettes for road design.
Create a Virtual Tour of a Path in Civil 3D In this exercise we will carry out the virtual route of a path within Civil 3D.
Calculate Volumes Using a subassembly in Civil 3D The development of road projects, particularly the design of roads, commonly requires the calculation of the volume of offal, based on the cross-sectional areas.
How to use the Autodesk Civil Design Companion Sheet Manager Autodesk Civil Design Companion, presents a tool that gives us the opportunity to create a standard format of printing that involves the plant, profiles and cross sections generating in this way all the set of plans that are required for a road project in an automated way and with the required standards.

Use of AutoCAD Civil in Cartography
Cleaning Tools in AutoCAD MAP Use of the tools of AutoCAD Map, to have productivity in the tasks of cartography.  
Define Coordinate Systems in AUTOCAD Civil 3D 2008 In this topic we will talk about how to incorporate a coordinate system in our environment AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 or AutoCAD Map 3D 2008, and mainly the Coordinate system of LAMBERT (INEGI Mexico)
Lisp to create a Topography Point Construction chart for AutoCAD Generates a Construction Chart of Surveying Points in AutoCAD 2000 and later.
AutoCAD Civil for Surface Handling
Analyze Elevations in AutoCAD Civil 3D Creating a surface by means of a query using a map task pane to select from a file the object information to generate a surface and perform an elevation analysis.
Extrapolate Surfaces in Civil 3D The extrapolation of surfaces when we do not have data in our land is an interesting situation obtaining additional data beyond our topography, this exercise shows us the procedure to extend surfaces within AutoCAD Civil 3D.
Use Raster Data to perform the "Drap" on the relief of a surface This video shows how to perform this feature in such a way that the image takes on the shape of the surface relief.
Import Points within Civil 3D In this exercise we will import a Points file and create a surface
Intercept Surfaces and Centroid Report on Civil 3D In many cases it is necessary to find the centroid of Figure 3D representing a Surface or a volume surface for the calculation of transport distances in Soil Movements
Creating Breaklines To Define Surfaces in Civil 3D A fundamental part of an infrastructure project is to have a reliable topography, which guarantees the completion of a good project with the satisfactory execution of the work.
Create Scale Labels Profile and Cross-Sections Creation of labels as a common requirement for the presentation of road projects, this label indicates the vertical and horizontal scale that will appear in both profiles and cross sections.
Using AutoCAD Civil 3D in other infrastructures
Create Tunnel Portals in Civil 3D It is very common when working in underground works, having to perform work on the accesses of these works by performing sloping tasks to be able to shape and drain access.
AutoCAD Civil 3D Channel Sections There are many uses for Assemblies. The corridor modeling catalog includes components for retaining walls, railways, bridges, canals, trenches, tunnels and more.

General Formula of Scales in AutoCAD Development of the creation of scales within AutoCAD.
Migrate Data to Civil 3D Sometimes we receive information from other sources such as simple DWG, DXF, LandXML or GIS files, as drawing entities that contain points, contours, alignments, and profiles that are not part of a database.
Manage Large Projects with Direct Access Although Civil 3D is a very complete tool and offers us enormous benefits for the design of infrastructure projects, it is also true that the program demands a lot of hardware resources and that when managing large projects, the performance of computers is significantly diminished. One way to work with large amounts of data is by using "Shortcuts" (Shortcuts).  Manage Large Projects with Direct Access - Part II
Create a special tag Using Expressions in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 to Define Special Labels
Connect AutoCAD Map with External Databases
Connect AutoCAD MAP and Oracle This video shows how to connect to Oracle from Autodesk Map, access Oracle schemas, classify the objects and attributes of the Autodesk Map file and send them to Oracle.
