Civil 3D points can help you tackle and solve many engineering problems. In this course, Getting Started Using Points in Civil 3D, you will see how to import points, manipulate points, and use points to create design elements. First, you will be introduced to points and what they represent in Civil 3D. Next, you will go over how point styles control the display of the marker in Civil 3D as well as, seeing how AutoCAD Civil 3D transparent commands are used to specify point locations within a larger operation, such as the creation of an alignment or a parcel lot line. Finally, you will use description keys to automatically control some drawing point properties, such as the appearance of a point in the drawing, when you create or import points. When you are finished with this course, you will be better equipped to use points in Civil 3D. Software required: Civil 3D 2018.
