Examine the Autodesk Civil 3D Grading Objects

What you'll learn

Reviewing Grading Settings

Creating Grading Criteria

Creating Grading Styles

Creating Feature Lines

Assigning Feature Line Elevations

Creating a Grading

Grading from a Building Footprint to a Surface

Filling Holes in a Grading with Infills


A basic knowledge of AutoCAD commands


With the help of these tutorials, you can begin modifying grading parameters, making gradings, and altering gradings to balance cut and fill volumes. In Autodesk Civil 3D, a grading has unique qualities and behaviors, just like an alignment or a surface. Like other types of objects in AutoCAD Civil 3D, grading objects have unique attributes and behaviors. The face of a grade is often defined by a base line, a target line, and multiple projection lines. Any open or closed figure might serve as the base line for your projection of the grade.With the help of these lessons, you will learn how to balance cut and fill volumes in gradings by modifying gradings and generating new ones.Grading settings are used to define the units for grade and slope values as well as to manage the work environment.Numerous typical grading scenarios exist. For instance, you might often have to make grading with a 3:1 slope and a relative elevation target. You may quickly apply the same grading criteria to other gradings by creating a grading criteria with these values and saving it.Each grading component's appearance is controlled by grading styles. You can design many styles for use with various grading schemes. You can design styles, for instance, to show various colors for cut and fill slopes.
