Civil 3D

Autodesk software for AutoCAD-based infrastructure projects

AutoCAD Civil 3D has been the top software in civil engineering to support BIM for a number of years now. Civil 3D incorporates all the functionality you need for successful AutoCAD-based infrastructure projects.

New features in the 2016 version include managing data shortcuts, displaying Vault projects, creating data references, importing and exporting IFC files, selecting alignments per layer and pressure pipe labels in cross section views.

When you purchase a licence for Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019, you also have the right to use the 2016 version. This is the only way, in the new licensing structure, to "buy" AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016 (further information on licensing).
