Design better civil infrastructure with Civil 3D

Civil 3D® civil engineering design software supports BIM (Building Information Modeling) with integrated features to improve drafting, design, and construction documentation.

Grading Optimization for Civil 3D

Conduct grading design studies based on project constraints. Grading Optimization is available in Civil 3D only as part of the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection.

  • Automate time-consuming grading tasks.
  • Explore alternatives to achieve an optimal grading solution.
  • Return the selected grading proposal to Civil 3D for detailed design.

Project Explorer for Civil 3D

Transform how you navigate, visualize, and interact with Civil 3D design models. Project Explorer is an extension available in Civil 3D only through the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Collection.

  • Simplify design review and modification.
  • Efficiently validate that design objectives are met.
  • Automate custom report and table generation
