Features

What's new in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018

New features enhance design and production efficiency, and workflow collaboration.

  • Relative elevation feature lines

    Obtain feature lines from a surface or relative to a surface, so feature lines update with changes to the surface.

  • Dynamic offset profiles

    Create dynamic offset profiles using a default cross slope. Modify them by editing the profile properties.

  • Connected alignments

    Create a new dynamically linked alignment and profile that transitions between 2 intersecting alignments and their profiles.

  • Pipe sizing and analysis

    Resize pipes and reset inverts, and compute the energy and hydraulic grade lines according to HEC-22 2009 standards.

  • Plan and profile sheet generation

    Create plan/plan and profile/profile sheets by including multiple plan or profile views on a single sheet.

  • Enhanced

    Label property set data

    Add custom data to AutoCAD Civil 3D object labels by using property sets.

  • Enhanced

    Traverse editor

    Create points, lines, and curves representing traverse legs and sideshots using COGO input and editing tools.

  • Corridor overlap resolution (bowties)

    Resolve corridor bowties in daylighting conditions.

  • Enhanced | InfraWorks interoperability

    Use preliminary design models within AutoCAD Civil 3D.

  • Enhanced | Pressure pipe networks

    Swap pressure network pipes, fittings, and appurtenances with parts of another size or type.
