Civil 3D - Unit A - Advanced Geometry - Roundabout Design Training Course



This course will introduce advanced alignment, profile and corridor design techniques and how they can employed to manually design roundabouts in Civil 3D. 

Delegates should have a good working knowledge of AutoCAD Civil 3D or have attended an AutoCAD Civil 3D New Users or Civil 3D Essentials course.


A brilliant course and ideal for any person

A brilliant course and ideal for any person. A great tutor who helps you in every aspect of understanding workflows, processes and design. Overall a fantastic course
