I am a university student trying to use civil 3d for one of my projects. I understand the process once the surfaces are created however, unclear on how to create a surface from the existing and proposed levels i have for the site.
So for the site I have the aod levels for the proposed and existing these are on a 2d drawing no z elevation
Any help will be appreciated
If you are working with only points, you'll need to add z elevations or the surface will be flat. If the points were created in AutoCAD, you'll need to convert them into C3D points.
Once you convert the points, make sure you assign your existing and proposed points to different point groups. You can now create the surfaces and you're pretty much done.
I've just started work as an estimator and I'm new to CAD. I have a contour map on AutoCAD Civil 3D with contour lines. How would I be able to use AutoCad to estimate the quantities of fill that I can obtain for the site? Lets say that the highest elevation is 20 feet and I want to bring the site down to 10ft?
