About This Class

In this course you are going to learn how to use the Autocad Civil 3D from scratch, while doing a real project.

The Autocad Civil 3D is one of the main softwares used for infrastructure projects, being able to analyse topography, simulate 3D terrain surfaces, design road projects, export reports about materials and more. 

If this is the first time you're using the software, there's no problem. You are going to understand the interface, the menus and how to do all the required settings inside the software. You are going to learn how to import topographic points and how to create the 3D surface of the terrain using these points. Then, you are going to learn how to design a road to be built on the terrain, taking into consideration it's particularities. You are also going to learn how to generate graphic profiles, views and perspectives of the project, and finally how to analyse and create reports about the the amount of terrain that will be managed (cut and fill) and the materials needed (concrete and aggregates).

1. Introduction : Hi, Welcome to the AutoCad Civil 3D course. My name is Chicago. I will see you engineer and I will be your teacher. In this first class, I'm going to show you the objectives of this course and the topics that you will see there. It, this is a practical course focused on the organic learning of the students. The objective here is that you learn how to use the Civil 3D while making a project. In this case, we are going to design a road to be built in a terrain. If you've never opened or worked. We have the AutoCad Civil 3D, there is no problem. We are going to start from scratch. In every click that I do on my screen, you are going to know why I'm doing that. So now let's see the topics that we will see during the course. We're going to start from the interface of the software. You are going to understand the menu's how to navigate through them. We are going to see then how to create points and how to import topographic points. With these points, we are going to be able to create the terrain, the surface inside the software. And then we're going to start to understand the concept of alignment and how to do it on practice, on the terrain that we just created. Then we are going to establish and designing the super elevation of our project. Then we are going to learn how to create the graphic profiles of our terrain, which are extremely important to analyze the amount of terrain that need to be managed. We're going to see how to design the road layers, the different layers that are going to make a road and how to design it. We are going to prepare the lanes, shoulders in other details of our road that is going to be built. We are also going to see the concept of corridors inside the Civil 3D. Very important to this kind of project. We're also going to learn how to create the sections through the corridor that we just created. And finally, you are going to learn how to generate the quantitative reports of the materials and terrain needed for the project. So let's start. 2. Understanding the Interface : Hi. So let's begin our first practical class of our Civil 3D courts. So if this is the first time you're opening the software, maybe you're visualizing all these interface of the software. Or maybe your scene. Another screen that I'm going to show you here. Okay, this screen, Let's remember that I'm using the Autodesk symmetry, the version 2021. And if you're using an older version, there is no problem. Some versions may have some difference concerning visualization, but all the tools and resources that we are going to use, they're all the same. So maybe there are some minimum changes, graphical ones, but that will not enable you from doing the course. But I always recommend to the most updated version of the software. So let's begin. So in case you're seeing this first screen, Let's make here for first recognize moment of the interface. And in this screen, it shows us the recent files over here that we are working. It also shows us the possibility to open files that we're working on or to create new ones. So let's click in new. In. Here we are at the interface of Civil 3D. So let's begin from the left. This left window is very important. It is called to space and in the case or not seen it, I'm going to close it here. And you can come here on the Home tab. And click was in two space in it will appear again. And we have here a lot of characteristics of our project. And we also have here on the right some categories perspective of settings, survey, toolbox of these categories can be abled or enabled. Here on the top. Besides where we clicked to able or unable to two space. So you can able it or disable. Here, they're not appearing again now you can see it again. All right, so we have a lot of settings over here, a lot of visualizations of our project. So hearing prospector, for example, have the points here, which is very important point groups. We also have the surface, which are the surface of our terrain that we're going to do here. The alignments that you are going to understand the application of that on the future. So this is a very important window in symmetry. The end right here on the bottom, we have three tabs. The model, the layout, and layout to. The model tab is where we're going. We're going to work our project. And the tabs, layout one and layout too. They are the creation tabs, creation of the sheets are going to be printed. So here we're going to make odd settings about the sheet, about the documentation, the writing, containing the name of the project, the name of the author of the project. But we are going to work effectively on the Model tab here. And so this is the main part of the program, does our, this is our work area. And we can zoom in or zoom out or project just rolling the scroll of the miles. Okay. And here on the right we have cube, what we also have in Rabat, the view cube. And this is our cube. It is market as top. It means that we are seen our project from the top. And we also have on the cube, we have the north, south, east, west. We also have here on the top a home button for Earth to reset our view. Okay? And we also, okay, we also have here on the right a bunch of tools of quick axis. And also on the right, a little bit to the left, we have some Zoom tools of navigation. I'm not going to click in each of them in order to show you how each of them works. Because it's much better to show you on practice during the project. How they are use it and how can they can be applied in practice. And I think it's way more interesting, less boring, and it fixes better The learn, learning. It's much more organic to learn this way. Okay, so let's continue. Here. On the bottom, we have some settings that we can hide or show. Just click in here on the right part. Customization. So for example, Dynamic Input, it corresponds to this icon. And I'm going to click here and it is gone. Okay, so this customization, we can add or hide whatever we want here on the bottom. Okay, Let's close here. And in the top part here of the interface will have to maneuver lines. So in caves you just seen the first line. That's because we need to click on this down arrow over here on, Okay, and come here in Hide menu bar. Actually, I'm seen admin bar. I'm going to click here to hide my line. But if you click again, you're going to see the option show menu bar, and I'm going to click, and that's it. So, okay. So I suggest you to lead these two lines of menu's to be shown. And this middle part here is known by rebound. That's the same name. We also have the other softwares as rabbit or Navisworks. So here on the ribbon we have a lot of menu categories and for each worth, for each of one of these options, we also have other tools. So here in home, for example, we have the two space, we have the profile view, and we also have the draw of tools, okay? And for which of these categories we also have arrow down. And if we click, you're gonna show you more options. Okay? All right, so we have also here the insert. We have 2s related to the assertion of elements, annotate, related to labels, to measures that can be seen the project who have modify, which is another tab. We have a bunch of men news sided these menus and it corresponded to choose, okay, right here on the top, we also have another new part, another tooth that we're going to use there in the project and here on the top also have the quick menu axis. So, okay, we have some fast options as to print, to send to cell phones, saved open a new file. Okay. Okay. A little tip here. In secretory do as we are also having AutoCad, we have an option, very interesting. So you can come here on the top and click in this C icon. And, uh, you can come to options, okay? And we have the option to save automatically, and I always recommend doing that. So he options that we can clear, you can open them save and come here on the bottom. Able desorption automatically Save and choose the time you want the software to save your file. Other options, even if they're extremely new. For example, Rabbit, which is a softer dad, I have courses about it. You just send you reminders. It doesn't save your files automatically. But in three, Civil 3D is possible to do that. It's very important. And I'm going to let the 10 minutes here, we have other options. Okay, we have other options here on the top. The outer theme settings. What can you see why you're, I'm dealing with structures, but I'm not going to change that. Just laid out a save, I'm going to click. Okay, automatic semicolon, I'm going to click Cancel. And let's remember that in Civil 3D, we can also work with hotkeys. And what are these hotkeys? Hotkeys are stead of view. Clicking on a two, for example, the two line, okay, Create line. So it's a tool for you to create a line. I'm going to, okay, I'm going to click the lat. So you can start off clicking on this too. You can just type line and press Enter. And that's it. The two is able. So let's remember that in 3 D symmetry D, I need to type the command, the hotkey and press Enter. Okay, Not are the twos. All of the tools have hotkeys, but the ones that we are going to choose C, I'm going to show you the hotkeys, okay? And in this course, each clique you do on your screen, you're going to know why you're doing that. So let's begin the project of our course. 3. Inserting Topography: So in this class, we are going to learn how to deal with points. And what I want to mean by same points. They are localizations in space. These points, they have geographic coordinates, topographic references, and information about elevation. And these points, they are imported here into the Civil 3D. And with all this points linked, we are going to have our topographic surface of our terrain so that we can work and do analysis and the projects that we are, we want to do here in Civil 3D. So in this first moment, let's learn how to work with this points manually. And the first step for you is to check. Just let me turn off here. I'm going to show you what I'm turning off here. The first step for you is to check how your interface. See that here on the top, we don't have the menu's points. Why? Because it is hidden. So you have to check, you have to click in this arrow pointing down here. And you have to come here and show menu bar. Okay? And after clicking, you're going to see another minuss, another line of minerals over here, right? So you also have the option to hide this bar and clicking here on the arrow pointing down and here in Hide menu bar. Okay? But as we're going to work with points, we need this menu. So let's show it again. Click on the arrow, showman war, so that this bar appears again. Okay, so we are going to learn how to work manually with this points. So let's click once in, one click in points. And then let's go to Create points and miscellaneous. I mean, see that we have a lot of possibilities. And create point from Okay, Intersections. Part of alignments, surface slopes, which are the slopes of the terrain. We have a interpolate, we have a lot of options. Let's click and create points and miscellaneous inlets. Click in manual. Now. Okay, so we have a menu over here on the top. And what can we do? Now? Notice that we have here written in our arrow. Please specify a location for the new point. I mean, we have to click in this occasion of our point. So let's click in anywhere. I'm going to click here. See a little bit to the left, okay? And after clicking, notice that what was written now, change it. Now the software, software is asking us to write a description k, So we can add a description for this part. In this case, I'm going to type here P. This is going to be my p point. Okay? You can type whatever description you want, but it is very important to pay attention on that. When we hit Enter, it asks us to specify point elevation to space phi elevation for this polity, this case, I'm going to type 102 discourse. I suggest you to use the same formation, the numbers that I'm using here, because we're learning together, you are learning with me. Okay? I'm going to hit Enter and I'm going to search for another point. I'm gone. Our first was reading sorted. So I'm going to click for the second. K. Here is okay. And yeah. Now I'm going to type description G and elevation 50, K and the softer continue asking me for another point. Okay, I'm going to click the third. I'm going to click here, around here. Okay? And I'm going to type the description of M. Hit Enter and the elevation, I'm going to type 10. And the software asks me another point. And in order to finish, I'm going to just create another one here. Well, I'm going to repeat the description P, which was the first description that I used. And notice that every point has its own formation of coordinates, elevation description. And this last one, I'm going to okay, description P. I'm going to hit Enter and the elevation, I'm gonna type 55. Okay. So I have all my points here. They are very small. I'm going to close this window. And in the moment that we do that, we don't have anymore the two. So we can click anywhere that the software is not creating new points anymore. Okay? You can zoom in, just rolling the screw of the mouse. Notice that my points, which are in red, they're quite small over here. They have an X on it. And notice that I am, I'm zooming in and out, rolling the screw of the mouse. And notice what I have here. I have a red point here, here and here. And in case it is very hard for you to see, I'm going to zoom here. And notice that we now we can observe on the menu here, on the left who have here the point groups. As we can. We're going to click here, which are the information of the points that were already created. It were a red inserted in this group. And it's written here. All points, I mean, these points in certain, in Civil 3D, they can belong to different groups. They can be grouped in order to make better our organization and the organization of our projects. Very important, important. And that's why you can apply this to your project according to our interests. Okay, let's remember that these points, they are going to be used so that we can create our terrain to link them, the points, and make the surface. So what are the possibilities that we have when dealing with groups? And this is very important. We can create new groups. We can click with the right button, clicking point, input groups and new, and we have this new window. And what do I want to do induce new window? I want to create a group and I want to gather up all those points that I created with the description p. Okay, so inhibitory the, we can create groups. Taken into consideration definitions. I mean, I want to create a group with points that have the same elevation are, have the same description. So this is possible to be done here. So we have this new window. And here in information, I'm going to change the name here. Name, pond to speak. Okay, P points. I can add a description here. I'm going to add point points, 11 inches, which is relevant points. And here on the bottom points tie. You can choose the style of our point, the graphic style. So you can select, Okay, I'm going to put hearing in basic. You have other ones here. If you click here, it will show you how the graphic of this point, okay? Real whole. Let's see. It is not an ACS anymore. It is a ball. Have the bound. Look, it is a square, red. Now, I'm going to keep like that at square. I'm going to hit, okay? Okay, uh, here in point label style, what do we have? We have the information from that point. We want to see what I wanted to be beside our points. So we have here description only, just a description, elevation. And the description. We also have higher elevation only. And northing and easting, which are the coordinates in space. We also have here the point number. I mean the classification of that point. I'm going to choose here elevation and description. We can also come here, not just seed. In order to have a preview. We cannot hit OK yet. We have to click in on the Include Tab. Okay? And here we have the information which one it should be. The Match ID for the points to be in that group. And in this case a created points, two points with the description of p. And I want to create a far off in the fourth option here with raw description matching. So we're going to match this description and I'm going to type here p. So, Okay, all the points would be we will enter this group. I'm going to click Apply, and I'm going to zoom. Here is amout of these points. Notice that I'm zooming in those points with the p.ball description. And it shows the elevation which I cited. It shows a description that is set at the Fermat, this square. And if I go, okay, if I go here on the top, on the left, I'm going to see the first that I created also with the description P elevation 100. And, and notice that the other points, the other two worlds, they don't have this description. So we kept that initial Fermat. They are not the, they don't have the label that I choose. And this time the graphic style and the formation of elevation description. So it is very cool. This possibility here in Civil 3D in order to work and modify a customized appoints here. And we can also check. Another possibility we have here on the left, here in point groups, look points P, B, P points. We have here our points and points P, which are the group that we created and selecting it. Notice that on the bottom we have the information of the points, the numbers. Exactly first one that I created and the formation of if northing point of well, all the information on the description point elevation. So now that we already knew how to create the points matter really, what are we going to do? We're going to learn how to add these points from a file generated from typographic instruments, okay, in this case, a GPS for example. So what is going to happen now? We're going to import this data disk points to see the 3D. And we've all this points we are going to set to configure our terrain, our surface. Okay, So here on the top, I'm going to click in. Okay, we have a project, we're going to start from scratch. So let's click in new. New. Okay, Nice. And what am I going to do now? All we have some formats and this is very important. We have some formats. Insert in Civil 3D so that the software can recognize and do the right, the correct reading of our file. And it is going to depend of the tool you're using. In this case, we did GPS generated this file. So you can open the file course. And it can observe, can see that we have a file here called points p and n, z d, and hating twice, two clicks, it will open a file, a text file. This file is generated by the GPS instrument of topographic reading. So when we open the file, we can observe that it has a lot of lines, okay? A lot of numbers. And note that the name of it is Pm, n, z dy, P&Z PA NCD is a format. And this is very important because symmetry the works with a lot of formats of nurturing part these points. So each letter of the name corresponds, in this case, two segment of information in this text file. Written in English. I mean the P. The letter P corresponds to point, I mean the point itself. So it's the first column here that is suffocation of the numbers of the points, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and so on. We have also the letter a. From easting. So this is the first information of coordinate. And we also have the N from larvae, which is okay, eastern North in the coordinates. Okay, we also have Z, which is the z-axis. So that's the elevation of the point, that's the fourth column here. And in our Chu finish we have the d of description, have the description of this point. Okay, So another point very important. We also have to configure, actually have to pay attention sides of the Civil 3D is how the the offsets, spacing of these information are done in this file. And notice that they are the numbers. They are separated by spaces. They are not separate, separated by points. Okay? Are any other icon? And this point here, for example, is related to the decimal. Okay? To the decimal information of the number, related to the precision, but the offset of the information, okay, The distancing is done through spaces. So let's remember that. That's very important. Let's get that expectations that, and it's very important also that in Civil 3D understands perfectly what kind of type we are porting and how the information in this file are. Organize it. Okay, So let's go direct the importing parts. So we have our Civil 3D open. We're going to click in points. Okay, here on the top. Let's remember if not seeing this, you can show it. So click hearing part and the important points. And we have this new window over here. We can make it bigger. And what is this new window? Well first we need to select our file. So let's click Add File. And we go to Select here points. You also have this file we view that's clicking Open. And Okay. We look, we also have here our file being shown. Notice that we have a lot of files over here, formats and here. Yeah. And notice that it is written space delimited. And this is the spacing between those informations that I talked. Okay? And this is exactly how our file is organized. So we can click, we can observe, observe. Here on the bottom. Kind of preview. The software shows us a draft of how our file is organized in the right way. Okay. So have the numbers over here. We have the easting northing coordinates, point elevation, which is elevation of the point, and the raw description, right? So everything is okay. And another possibility we also have here around the bottom is add points to a point group. I mean, I'm going to check and I already want to create a group for these points that are entering now in the software so that it will organize better my information. So I'm going to let here at point-to-point group. And I can click here. And this new window, it can type the name of this new group. And I'm going to type group, which is group one. You can type whatever you want. And okay, and these, so these points are going direct to this group. Okay? So let's follow here. And before hitting Okay, We have some advanced options here to make the juice of elevation possible. I will let it marked and transformation of coordinates. I'm going to let it unchecked. And let's click in. Okay. And in case you're, you can't see your points. Already saw did they were created over here? You can zoom. Okay. Took little bit too. To load. You can zoom. That. Hit ask. Are you can okay? Or it can click twice with the screw. Can click twice with the screw of the mouth. Okay. And so as in AutoCad, the software extends the Zoom and fit it in your visualization of that point. So if the project is displaced or very small, you can click twice the scrubber atom and it brings the file to the project. So we have here all the points. 4. Creating the Terrain: Okay, so now that we already have our points imported into the software, we're going to create the surface of our terrain. Because here we have points, but they are not linked. They are just points with elevation, with coordinates, but they are not linked. They're not making a surface. So in order to create that, the terrain, first, we need to come here on the left menu, okay, here on the prospector tab in surveys. And we have to create our surface inside this mineral. So with the right button here in surfaces, you're going to mark it in. You're going to click with the right button. And you're going here in this new manure in create surface. Okay? You just give one click and then we have this new window. And what do we have here? We have the type. Here. It creates her faced a TIN surface water. A lot of students ask me, what is ten till ten corresponds to Triangular Irregular Network. I mean, a triangular irregular network. It will be a denomination to this triangle relation in order to join the points, irregular points. Okay? We also have, on the right, we have the surface here, the surface layer and the name and we can modify here, I'm going to type here soup be feces. But is, It's the same ohms of surface one. You can type whatever you want. I recommend you from using the same that I'm using here. And okay, in style, we can choose our kind of, our tapper of utilization of this terrain. If we click, we have these three points here on the right, we can click again. And we have some styles that we can choose. Border only. Just using the borders were not going to see the internal surface of the terrain. We also have have the elevation. In this case, I'm going to choose contour lines and triangles because I want to, I want to visualize this internal triangulations that are going to be done in the surface of the terrain. Let's remember that this was visualization, can be changed it whatever you want. Okay, so in contours and triangles, I'm going to click here and select can observe, okay, the internal triangles that I talked to you, this triangulation. If we select, for example, border only, the internal part is not seen anymore. Okay, That's why I'm going to go back here to counter ions and triangles. Okay, is checking here. We are ready have the name surface, one, key name description style in render material. I'm not going to change it. Actually we can, but I'm going to keep it going. Keep the block. Let me guess so. And let's okay. I got to keep them by block. And okay, let's click in OK and see that nothing changed it yet in our visualization. But here on the left, if we click in the plus side of surface, we are rarely have here surface one, it was created and now we can open this first surface one, okay? And we can come here in definition. And if we click with the right button, I'm going to open this menu. Okay? What are we going to do now? We're going to link all those points. So we're going, we're going to put software to assert, in fact, the surface in the localization created. How are we going to do that? We are creating a surface, a surface through the points imported using the peahens d Phi. So let's click. Okay. We have here definitions, so we're going to come here in point groups. Let's click with the right button. Let's go to Add and why, why we're doing that. You remember when we imported our points, we eradicated a group to where all those points where we're going to select this group. And we're going to select here, rope one. If we have other groups created, you have the freedom to choose those groups. That's why I always say in my class is always. When working with labs, works of rabbit is very important when working with these softwares. Mainly talking about softwares that uses BIM methodology, a lot of information or organize yourself. There are organizations of the information is crucial for the success of your project and to minimize the errors. So let's select the group one. So everything has a logic. Let's key clicking. Okay, let's wait and see. Now it has been created the whole surface. Let's give you, zoom over here and see our opponents in triangulations. Very interesting. You can move this way, just hitting the scroll of the mouse. I'm going to zooming in, zooming out, just rolling the screw. And now notice this part of the terrain over here, in fact is an interference so we can effect the terrain comes over here. Yeah. And it follows this part here and come over here. And so we have this little corridor over here. And what can you do to emulate, to delete this unconformity over here is error created by this obser. We're going to click, Okay. We have to click here in surface one. So if you see them with the right button, and we're going to go to surface properties. Okay? And in this new window, this let me adjust. Over here. We're going to fix that inconsistency that I showed you. So let's click on the top in. Yeah, Let's click in definition. The first moment. Let's go in Butte. Let's click on this signal. In this screen. Let's look for the information. Okay, here, maximum triangle length. I mean, use the maximum length of the strangulation I'm going to select Yes. Because I want to avoid those unconformities and the hair opened mirror, okay. In this case I'm going to type here 150 meters. Okay? I'm going to apply rebuild the surface. Can click So the software is going to rebuild our surface and look how modified over here, we don't have those lines, those error lines anymore. We have can follow through the corridors. Now it is correct. So what are we going to do now? We're going to create what we call an Civil 3D, the alignment. In this case, who have a terrain and we're going to build a road in this terrain, okay? So we have to draw a line which will be at the center line and the line which will guide where the road is going to be built. So in Civil 3D, we call this line the alignment. And from it. And we can do a lot of works, projects and extract, extract information. 5. Creating an Alignment : So in order to create our alignment, let's go to here on the top in alignment and create alignment by layout. So let's create this alignment 0, have this new window. We can change the name of this. I meant. I'm going to write here, I'll zoom alignment and you're gonna choose here central line, which is the line up the center. We can't type a description. Starting station is the 0. And in here in design criteria in general, Let's see the design criteria later. Engineering in general. We have the we have the side to have the alignment style and we have also the alignment label set. And what does it mean? It is in fact the visualization of our alignments. So let's keeping proposed. You can click here so you can see it. And in own labels. Here. Let's change it to major, minor and geometry points. I mean, I want to see the geom metric geometry points, maximum and minimum values of our points. Okay? And before clicking OK, we can, okay, we can go to the design criteria. And what is interesting here, we can delimited here in case on the creation of a road, the maximum speed in this case, I'm going to put here, for example, this tiring. Yeah, I'm gonna put here 40 kilometers per hour. And y is, is interesting this case I'm not going to select this option. Use criteria. I'm based design. I mean, I'm going to use I'm not going to use the criteria because symmetry D, it allows us to check the undulations of the curves, the angles, characteristics of the road if they are according to the rules, that dimensioning rules according to the maximum speed. But in this case, it's done. It's not my interests. We're not going to use that, but it's important for you to know that it exists. So click on OK. We came here to our project. Here on this menu on the left, we can click here in order to draw our eye minute and have a lot of options over here, in this case that we are going to check with curves. Okay? We also have to intelligence with no curves. We're going to click in tangent with curves C over here, no curves. Now under a curve and spiral settings, I'm going to click here on the middle with curves. And the software asks me to specify the point that I want. I'm going to use a quick zoom over here, m, k. From here. I'm going to create, I'm going to change. I'm going to start. I give one-click already have my line being drawn. I'm going to give another click here. Okay? And the third click, moving here down, notice that the curve is already being drawn. I'm going to click here, okay? And so now I'm going to hit ask. I already have three points. Okay? Notice and after hating ask, notice that my alignment was made from the Xero. Have the curve comes due, the weight will have the final mark. And what is interesting as well. Instead of the 3D, notice that I also have the distances, okay? And notice that software marks the beginning of the curve and also marked wet it, the end of it. So, and then the alignment comeback to be strict and in the end. So a possibility we have to extract what we call reports about this, all this information. And here on the left in Toolbox I'm going to click. And we have here in Report Manager, have the possibility to extract reports of any element, element of surveys. To have the surface, have the profile. And we draw the alignments. So let's click here. Okay, we also have the option to generate some parts, some information, for example, station and curve, where you can execute. And then he going to ask me to select who can select the objects that are going to be exported. I'm going to hit, can hit, Okay? And I have to choose the folder that I want to save. We can choose the type of the file I'm going to choose here, HTML and see, okay, I already have here our file exported with all the information of each part of the alignment, the tangents where we also have where the curves. Okay, tangent data AP the station who have where the curves start, all the information related to the project. So in the next class, we continue. 6. Creating the Superelevation: Hi. So let's continue with our course. And now we're going to create what we call the super elevation. And then we're going to create our longitudinal profile. And then our profiles of cut and fill related to the terrain. So first, the super elevation. Let's learn how to create this view of our alignment. And the, okay, so let's do a zoom over here, and let's select our alignment. And in order to be easier, you can click on this triangle over here, which will be the tangents. I'm going to hit Esc now. So you can see. And I'm going to come here and okay, ready selected my, my alignment. And notice that when I select my alignment, look here on the top of the interface of the Civil 3 D. We have a new menu over here. Look, alignment and yeah, I mean two, which is the name that you choose. And in this ribbon, we have been new super elevation. We're going to click, we have here calculate an added super elevation. I'm going to click one time. And the software says the alignment doesn't contain data about super low inflation. What do you want to do? Calculate, can calculate the super elevation now, or I'm going to click it. And now we can choose the type of road. I'm going to let the pivot method center based k, This line up the center of the road. Remember that here is a kind of road. Let's keep it undivided. Okay? And lanes were going. And notice how interesting is this part. We have the lanes over here and it is symmetric roadway. And then if we mark it is already checked over here. All that we sat in one side of the road. The software will replicate that to the left side. So if I put here five meters, a radically changed the other side to five. I'm going to come back here to six. And notice that software ready change it to six. And if I take away the symmetric road way, I can configure, I can set each side differently with a different configuration. I'm going to keep the symmetric roadway. We also have here the number of lanes, okay, I'm going to keep one. And you can change. K will have to do with a normal lens low, okay? I'm going to keep it in minus two. So you can change it according to our project. I'm going to, I'm going to put four for normal n and okay. Then clicking Finish. Let's come here to shoulder and control. That's miscalculate. Turns off because for now I don't want this calculus comes in attainment. Here in attainment can be kind of execution. We have here according to the rate, I mean, the rate of relation between of our super elevation, I'm going to keep and 4%. Okay. We'll have the farm families of transition of the super elevation. This Verrier does according to your project. Okay. The percentage correspond to the tangent for the curve k 66 and of the tangent curve, we also have the spiral curve. So this is very particular of each project. I'm going to keep it as this is a train meant learning, okay? In need. It's important for you chew dominated the two. So you can, you can replicate according to your project. And I'm going to click Finish. And we here have the information about our super elevation. And it's interesting to observe that we can modify all these information here if we just click OK. Ok. So following, I'm going to create the view, the visualization of this super elevation. So we are ready, have our alignment selected? Yeah, I'm gone. I'm going to uncheck all here. Okay. And what we can click and super elevation and create super elevation view. I'm going to create this view. We can induce new window, can change the name. I'm going to type superiorly vassal one, which is the same of super elevation one. You can choose the name. And following, we can. Okay. Let me see here. Let's click, Okay. And we have to select here a place for the software to create the super elevation. Okay? Look, there are some inconsistencies related to the curriculum that need to be analyzed. But it is not the focus of this train meant. But it is important to notice the how the information's are being shown here. Super elevation since the 0. Okay, look the percentages over here, the limb Ted. And now we can go to create our longitudinal profile. And what is that profile is like we've seen our terrain. Like if we did, did we cut it? And when we come to cut and we're looking to our terrain from the side, okay? So we can observe what needs to be modified on it. 7. Creating the Graphical Profiles : So in order to create our profile, we are going to have to select our alignment. Okay? Sorry. So we have our alignment over here. And okay. And notice that here on the top menu, we have here surface profile. We also okay, will have its surface per file. We have the profile view. And so let's click in surface profile. So we have the create profile from surface. The SAP software will create profile considering the surface of the terrain we just made. And what's the idea here? And we have our terrain, the surface. And while, when we create this alignment, the software put this alignment right in the terrain, taken into considerations, the deformations, the angles is lobes, the variation of the terrain. So that's the profile that is going to be created. So now had to add in this new window, the Earth's surface. So the surface that we created at a surface one, we're going to select and click here in ads. Okay? We, okay, we could do limited the range through this, this profile. But so maybe you just want to see the profile to the middle of it. But I'm going to keep all, and I'm going to click in dropper, draw in profile view. Just one-click. And we'll have these new window. Now. Here we have select alignment. We have Aliya mint, which was the alignment one. Okay, let's keep it corresponds to our alignment profile view name. We can create a name I'm gonna type here. If you launch it to general. I mean profile one can add a description. As usual, in Civil 3D, we can always choose the style, okay, the, the graphic style of this profile here, I'm going to select land, okay, I'm going to click once selected lands desktop, where it is it landed desktop profile view. You're going to notice why I'm searching for okay, here. Why am searching for it? Look, this is how it would be our visualization. This is a preview, okay? And before you create a far, you click an advance our Create Profile View. Let's go to our menu. Notice that these minerals on the left, Let's click in Station Range a here is almost the same idea. We can select our range. I mean, I'll limit, so for our visualization and I'm gonna, I'm gonna keep it as it is because I wanted to see the profile alignment profile in a hole. Okay. And okay. Hearing start and hearing profile view heights is the same idea to delaminate a range, but here is concerning the elevation, the minimum and maximum I'm going to keep automatic because the software re recognize the terrain, but you can, I can click in user-specified to change this range. Okay. Then we'll have the profile display. Okay, data band's profile hatch. I'm going to, I'm not going to select anything here for y. And let's click on Create Profile View here on the bottom. In order to create a profile for following, the software asks us to click in a point of the screen. So I'm going to click here. Okay, Here it's good. N, we have profile corresponds here, corresponds to r 0 and started, okay, we started this elevation and it grows a little bit, okay, from here, then it falls a little bit and goes up again. So this is our longitudinal profile. So what, what is going to be our next step? Now we're going to draw the profile. Okay, We have here the profile of our terrain. And in this case we're going to create a rude. So we're going to draw. A new profile that would be this road, for example. And the civil 3D will take into consideration the amount of Earth that is going to be taken off the terrain and the amount of earth that need to be added to the terrain. Okay, So first we'll have to select our profile. I'm going to click, I'm going to click here, under here. Sorry, I'm going to hit ask you to select here, okay? And notice that here on the top, wherever we have here, Five view, if you want you to do now. And we have here profile creation tools, the tools that we're going to use, Let's click once and that will have this new window. We can rename it here in name. I'm going to rename this our profile pic few, I mean phi 1. Or you can also add one description if you like. Let's keep the profile style. Have several options over here. You can explore according to your interest. Just let me check here. Okay. You can also change the profile label set here on the bottom. Let's run under the label are losing formations that appear. Okay, so let's click Okay, and now we need to do that Civil 3D to take into consideration also the curves and the tangents. So I'm going to hit Ask and large not select. Our profile was created. Okay. I'm going to click on the left in, draw tangents with curves. Okay? Because now you're going to draw, well, where will be our ruled? So let's remember that these points that I'm going to mark here that can be modified later. And for example, I'm going to mark the first here, okay? The initial point. I'm going to select the other points here. Okay, another one over here, and the next one or two to furnish. Okay. And our right. So see that the in red we have the line of our terrain. In, in blue, we have what would be the creation of our road. Okay. So it was already created. I'm going to hit ask. And when I click Ask, we have here some elevation about our profile that was created. And I want to see as well the elevations in each points. So we can click on the top menu. We can click in an option. Here, profile grid view, and look how interesting it is. You can see here the three marks with some information. Look, we have the PI station, which are the points that are marked. We have the PVA elevation, which are the elevations of the points. The points in blue line, which is the rotor that I'm going to build. And here we can modify this information, okay? If you want the elevation of each point, notice that when I select a point, we can see our green triangle. Look. We can see a green triangle in the profile identifying that point. So we can modify the point marked here. And what I want to show now is a terrain that is going to be taken off and the amount of earth than it to be included over here, over here. So I'm going to, I'm going to select, I'm going to hide, select my blue line here. And I'm going to the profile grid view I'm going to hide. Okay, so in profile, here, in profile prefer one. I'm going to click the right button, actually. Hit Ask. It can select the whole border over here and right-click, sorry, okay, right-click on it. And I can come in and profile view properties, which are the properties of profile we created. We are going to come here in the top in bands. And we're going to add, okay, in this blank space over here, where what we want to see. About curtain few of our terrain, the amount of earth that going to be taken off, and what going to be added. So the band type. Okay, you have the band type style, have the elevation, this tile. So let's change the style which you few data, okay? Okay. And here in profile phi one, I'm going to select superficial, surface one. In profile chew, you're going to select very important flat profile 1, 0. And we're going to check these two boxes over here, labeled Start station and label end station. Okay. Now we have already said this part of my my profile as fuel. And I got to add, I'm want to add a configuration here on the bottom related to the cut data. Okay, so I'm gonna click, Okay, now cut data. We're going to click an ad. You're going to set the same conditions here. Label starts, okay? Just checking here, Label start, ready. Checked label a and phi one. Phi to be few. Profile one. Let's select Profile 1. Correct. Just verifying. And okay. And before clicking, OK, Let's come here to hatch and the last clicking cut and fill. And now I can click. Okay. And here we finally have the visualization and see we have the compensation in green, what we need to add of material of Earth. And, and, okay, we have the terrain on the bottom and the red line and the road there's going to be created in blue. And this green hatched is what is needed to be added. Or cut. Cut is going to be in red like this. Okay, the amount of earth. And that in this class we finally finished the creation of a super, super elevation on longitudinal profile and the cut and fill profile. You're going to continue on our next class. 8. Configuring the Road Layers: Now we're going to do a greater detail. You are rude. And even having done the profiles, now, we want to see the kind of ruled that is going to be built. We're going to see the section of it. In order for us to visualize it, we need to work with a two of Civil 3D identified as corridor. So on the top menu of the software, we have here, corridors. Let's give one click, OK, and let's click here and create assembly. And assembly is related to creation, to installation. So it's, it's the build part of our road. So let's click in assembly. Okay, So you're in the menu of configuration over here. We, we're going to rename it. Okay, here in name. I'm going to write Estrada. That would be the same of road one. And you can write the discrete scription here, assembly type. I'm going to keep others. I'm going to keep actually somebody type basic as assembly style basic, OK and OK. And some of the software is asking me, so we can click where we can draw the section. I'm going to zoom here. Click Okay. And here we have the red line, have an orange one. So the red line is a central line of the section of a road. So in order to create the characteristics of a road, first, we need to select this line that we created. Okay, so here on the top, on the home Manu, you're going to click in to palettes. Here, two pallets, or you can use the hotkey contour. And the number three are simply click here. Okay, so our window will open when a click or use the hotkey and it opened small here, we can make it bigger. Notice that in this window will have several options here. And which options are these? We have a lot of element categories. And Rhodes, who have the shoulders, the central part of the road, separated by barrier. So you gotta identify the kind of elements that you want to build. In this case, I want to build central bearer and the center, center of the road. So okay, we're going to click in medians. So that's the middle part of the brood. And we're going to select Medium flush with barrier because in this case I want a barrier on the middle. I'm going to select one click. Okay? And we have here on the right a menu. I'm going to open it. Yeah, I'm going to make it bigger. You can just a minute. Okay. We can move it. Just clicking the right part of it. I'm going to put it on this left side. I'm going to open it more. Okay? And this new part, we can set, can choose the settings of this new element that we choose. Okay? So we have here include barrier case. So the central barrier, central wall. You can click on it. Hi David. I'm going to keep it. Include barrier. And we also have here on the bottom other options as the have the left, we live, right, I'm going to keep it as it is in case we want to modify, just give, just click. And you can type or wherever you want. Remember that in Civil 3D. I'm going to keep 1 to the left, which is before starting the road. Okay. We also have, remember that secretory. Do you have to click and type fast the number, okay? We also have here the fault left slope. Okay, minus 2 default right slope. And look, this part is very interesting. The pave one, the paved two-page depth. So what does it mean? These are the depth of the pavements. Okay. This is going to be better seen. For example, pavement one would be the superior layer, okay, over pavement. I'm going to keep this okay. This number over here, it can change if you want. I'm going to keep the pave chew as well. I'm gonna keep the base and the sub bass. So all these numbers are going to be kept OK? And now we can click here on the central line. And we have our barrier, okay, we have our element and the layers, corresponding layers to the pavement, to the pave one, to the pave Chu bays and surveys. So there are here. 9. Creating the Lanes and Shoulders.: I'm going to create, so the part of a part of the ruled. So in this section, I'm going to select this central part and click here in home, sorry, here in the Home tab. And I'm going to click in to palettes and have several options here. To choose. Remember to click in lanes here on the MLU. And we have the shape trapezoidal. We have also the lane parabolic. So here are the top. We have the generic pavement structure. I'm going to choose for this case the ln outside upper multilayer. And here we have several options in order to configure this parameters in the same way we had in order to configure the central part of the road with the barrier. And we have to keep the coherence between, between these layers. Okay? And here we have sides. It is marked as rights, and we could click here and choose left. But I want to do the first part, the right part of the root, and then I got to replicate it to the left side. Okay, so I'm going to keep it. I'm going to keep it as it is. M. I'm going to zoom in here in this red circle. I'm going to click it. And we have a ready here. This part of the road, I'm going to click Ask and see the MLU is gone. I'm going to close this window and see that the layers here, they're not, okay. Just the 2 first ones. And I'm going to select it was for proposal. And okay, right-click on it. And let's go to Properties. And, okay, and here are the values, the numbers that we're going to change, okay. To stay in accordance to the first part of our lanes, central part of the lane. So in psi m right side here with if we're going to change, we have to click and change quickly. Okay, let's keeping for in default slope, we let it in minus2, you pay one depth, which is due step of the first layer. I'm going to keep the paved shoot depth. I'm going to keep it to the p53 depth is not this part over here. I'm going to exclude it. I'm going to keep it in 0, okay? If you have other labels, one, exclude, just modify it according to your project. In BaseOne death, there is this layer over here. Base chew, it doesn't exist. I'm going to keep the 0, base 3 as well. And so bays, okay, the suburbs is this big one over there and I'm going to keep it 0. Okay. Poetry and the other one's 00. And here we have the right part of our road SAT. So I'm going to click on Close and click Yes. And what are we going to do now? We can add the shoulders, okay. Here in Civil 3D. So I'm going to select my the central line. Okay. And again in the home, the home tab, I'm going to click, Okay. I'm going to click into palettes in here in categories. I'm going to look for shoulders. We have a radio. Lot of options over here. And sort of, for example, I'm going to choose shoulder extend subways. Okay? Because that's the, that's the element we are going to use. In this case. It is over here. Yes. Show the extent sub bays, okay, we have the possibility of those configurations and we'll select here on the top first, okay, for you to see how it is. And everything here can be set. I'm going to click ask. Okay? Yeah, and again I will select it and right-click on its Sorry. Okay. I'm gonna close it here. Okay. So right-click on it. Let's go to Properties. Yeah. And we have here shoulder width. Okay. I'm gonna change it to one meter. Notice how it change it. We also have here okay, super elevation slope. We have the default shoulder slope. Okay. I can put two. Okay. I'm going to go back to moves. I'm sorry. Six. Okay, it raised, okay, I'm going to go back to moves over here. K minus 6. That's why. Okay. I'm going to keep it. Just check if the information related to the pavements are right. So for example, pave one depth first layer is correct, paved to performance, correct. The pill chew as well and Bayes. Bayes okay. Are correct. So we can close this window. Everything's fine. And now what should we do? Yeah, everything's fine. Let's close here. And it is important for us to do the configuration so that the software can read those cuts, those sections of the cut, and fill the amount of Earth of the terrain. So we got to again select, we're going to go to our central line of our section. And k, I'm going to select it. We're going to come here to tuple ads. And we're going to click on the category basic, Basic here. So we have the option of basic lane. The first one, I'll have several other options over here. Basic. We have the basic shoulder for example. Let's click in basic slides loop, cut, ditch. Okay, so let's select OK. And now we're going to click and do circle at the end of our shoulder. Okay, just one click and see cut slope layout mode and fill slope layout mode, okay, you have the cut and the fuel. Okay? And now we keep them close over here and you can replicate that to what we have done the right side, I can replicate that to the left side, so I'm going to add press ask, and I'm gone. Okay, oops, I'm gonna just one click with the mouse. Okay? N are going to select not the central part is over here. And I'm going to give a click with the right button. And I'm gonna select mirror K. And I'm going to mirror just one click and it's ready to the replicate. So look what the slopes are brought me here, mirrors sub-assembly, select Marker points. So software is asking me to select a point. I'm going to select here on the top, and that's it. The right part was replicated to the lab side. So it's ready section. 10. Creating the Corridors : Continuing our course. Now we're going to do a configuration of the corridor because we want the program to do this analysis of the cut and fill and also here on sanctions that are going to be viewed. So in order to start, let's zoom out here a little bit. See that our visual is a little bit confusing. Over here. I'm going to click in our terrain. And with the right click, I'm going, yeah, you're selected, right-click in and go to Properties. And a here, e and style. Style formation. I'm going to change from con turns and triangles. I'm going to change to border only. So the sinc, so our code to be more clean, okay, to be cleaner. I'm going after close in it. I have a better Jolly now, hit ask. And what I wanna do, and I want the software to recognize the regions of cut and fill also in my sections. And I want to generate also intermediate points so that this visualization of, that, I have the visualization of this sections in those points, and I want all of it automatically. So the first thing we need to do is we'll have to come here on the top and corridors, one-click and let's click in create corridor. Okay, So as usual, we're going to name it. I'm going to name corridor one cohere door. Okay. And Okay. And here in description, you can type whatever you want. We're going to keep the Carder style in basic. Still, only one that it's still here. Here on the bottom. He asks us the Bayes, the baseline type. I'm going to take the element one base. If we had other alignments, they would be available over here. So the alignment let's remember, that's the line that we did. The marks. So you're going to clip the alignment one and profile phi one. And we're going to select a surface surveys of our okay. Yeah. 51. Just checking over here. And here in assembly, we're going to select the strata. Here. Actually here in target surface. That's the target that we configured. So if you see and notice that we are selecting in Civil 3D, we're linking everything that we configured, the surface assembly, the alignment of the profile. So let's click Okay, and here in this new window, this software we open, ask us to build the corridor. Okay. So let's click, Okay. And let's click here in rebuild the corridor. And look how interesting already have here the graphical part of our corridor. And now we're going to do now just softer can realize the analysis of cut and fill for the construction, for the build of these new roads. And the software need to understand the all the sections together of the road, okay, the road into the terrain, just compensation of Earth, Aldus calculus. So click on the corridor, right-click on it. Let's come here in corridor surfaces and a right here. We're going to add the part in this case, what about our terrain? Okay? That the road That's going to be inserted in the terrain is going to be created. So let's create, let's click hearing create corridors her face. Okay, you're going to create the surface of this Carder. We can rename here. Oops. Okay, Sorry. You're going to rename here to super. Super do I mean superior surface. So I'm adding the maximum layer over here are my of my terrain in which the Carter Edens inserted nm, got to add the minimum as well. Okay. Uh, here in the corridor surface style. Okay. No, no display. Okay. In overhand. Okay. We'll have a unit render material. I'm going to keep it in here in overhead car reaction, we need to select here the top links. Let's remember that we're analyzing here the superior part of the surface in which the root is going to be inserted on the terrain. Let's keep the datatype of length specify code as top. And I'm going to click in more to add. Actually. And that's it. And now you're gonna create the fair your part. So let's create for using for your farrier surface in the same way you are going to change. Okay, Haier surface style to know display in overhand collection, going to change it to borrow links. And in specify code, gonna change to datum. Okay? And we're going to click a and add. Okay, and just a detail here. We need in order to avoid software error, we need com hearing boundaries. Okay? And in superior surface, Let's click of the button and add automatically. They lie right here. Okay? We need to do it in order to not cause an error. And when between the layers and the compensation between the role of the terrain and a forward. I'm going to show you you can change the lot from nuisance, see how we would look. Okay. But furthermore, I'm going to show you, and here in if your surveys, we're going to click the right button. I'll also put your wifi symphony or inferior surface and add automatically daylight as well. Automatically it, yeah, that's right. The light does one-click and we are going to okay. Top surface, okay, That's right. In surface. Okay, let's OK. And let's look in reboot corridor. 11. Creating the Road Sections: And now one part, varying part and part very, very used in projects. I want points through our ruled for me to see the sections of this role taking into consideration the terrain as well. Like we've cut the terrain. And I have, I want an equidistance between these points. So first in the Home tab position here. Okay, Let's go for the Home tab on the top of the software. Yeah. Gonna come here in sample lines. I'm going to be one-click. And software asks me already activated to select an alignment. You select the alignment. And I can click on the alignment of our hit Enter. So that then I will choose Alignment from the list. Look, I'm going to click Okay, That's the only alignment I have. And we have here this new window created. We're going to rename it as we always do. K. This new window. I'm going to type here, Linnaeus in damage your iris, which is the same of intermediate lines. Okay? And notice that the superior surface here in data source, I'm going to change here. I'm going to change too from existing ground to finish the ground because I want the visualization of the work done and there's existing is the existing parts so finished. Okay. And now the cemetery, the look we have let me see here. Okay, Let's click. Okay. Okay. So notice that there is a red line coming out from the corridor. And Civil 3D is asking us what we want to do with the two n. Notice that on the top of the interface known software, we have new window. Kay, simple line tools and have several tools over here. And when I click here in creation methods, here, we have some option will have the station going to select Specified points. We also have the peak points on screen. We also have select existing polylines and what, what I want, I want the BRI range of station. I want equidistance. What makes a lot of sections along my root? K nm gonna click in a key. I have left of width if before that. Here. That's the distance. I want to do. We have 20 here. If we click, you can select the maximum distance in the project. So for example, you can measure this distance over here, for example 20 and click a Hebrew. Do the softer we do the compensation and rec recognized. So I'm going to put here for free actually even further to the left and here on the right. And here in sampling increments, That's where you're going to add the distance that we want between these points, between this section. So I'm going to type here. I'm going to keep it to 20 meters. You can change, you can change to 15. And in all situations, look increment along tangent, does increments along tangents, curves and spirals. You can keep 20 meters. You can change. But I want this, I want to do is 20 meters over here. I'm going to click Okay. Yeah. And I'm going to. Click on Ask. Look that we have blue lines along the road. And I will be able to see all the sections automatically. And how can we do that? Let's go to the Home tab. On the, again, on the top of the interface or the softer. Okay, it's already selected and hearing section view. Let's click in create multiple views. And I don't want to simply create a view in a section. I want multiple ones, so one-click. And okay, We're going to change here selection view name. It's very important to put the names so that we don't get lost in our project. So intermediate sanctions, for example, I'm going to write to so it's damaged. You add is in description. You can type whatever you want. And here in style, section view style, you can change. She wrote section, see how it looks. We also have the land desktop. Okay. Let's keep the land. We have yeah, let's keep the land. And we have other options here on the labs section placement here the software gives you option to choose a layout according to our template. Actually, I don't wanna deal with that. I'm not going to create a sheet. I'm not going to create the documentation here. So I'm just going to simply do a draft, simply the drawing. And I want to see the deceptions. And then I will take an attitude to see what am I going to do with them. So I'm going to let here the draft selected. We also have here the offset range, the elevation range. I'm going to keep it in automatic sold software can recognize the maximums and minimums database. Before that we'll have the selections play Archons, data band. Let me see here in this section display. We care in here in section placement, clicking Create section views to create the exceptions end. Yeah, everything is okay. And now the civil 3D asks me to select a point. And I'm going to zoom over here. And I'm going to click in. It will generate all those drawings of the sections. And okay, it already created everything. Sat, look, you have the values here, the numbers. And it's extremely interesting, very useful in projects. So let's continue in our next class. 12. Generating the Quantitative Reports: Okay, So we're heading to the final part of our course. And what are we going to do now? We're going to extract the quantitative leaves, the tentative schedules of the earth, manage it. The cut and fill amount of Earth should do the road in this terrain and also the quantitative about the needed materials in order to build the road. So the volume of concrete, the relation of the quantitative, of the aggregates, of the basis of the layers that we pre, sat in order to get our view. So initially, we're going to come here on the top in sections. And we're going to click in, compute k here, compute materials. So in this window, Let's keep here alignment one, linear mu two, and in selection Sample Line. Yeah. So let's sample line group. We're going to keep the intermediate lines means intermediaries. And let's click OK. And we have this new window. And in this new window, what are we going to do? All is the idea. We'll have to select the top surface of our terrain. Actually the top of large terrain. The maximum that is going to be a Richard by our road and the inferior points so that the software can do is calculate sums of the earth of the materials. So initially, we've got quantity takeoff criteria. Let's keep the current few. And here on the right, just, yeah, cut a few. And here on the right is just check if there's average and average and area. Okay. And in this window here in AG, Civil 3D is asking us to identify this terrain. So EEG, it means existing ground. So we're going to click, we have to select to identify these terrains. So let's click here. And the first BG and click to set up here in Dayton surface. Okay, let's click OK. And see that when we selected here, notice we have the ground removed. L, we have the ground field, and We have here the datum, okay, Raul, remove it round few about the if your surface as well. And so we have here is actually the, we're showing the softer what we want in this delimitation of this earth management. And click on Okay, you have, just wait. And the following. We need to come here again and sections in generate volume report. Here. The last option. So we got to extract this volume report. One click on it and you're going to have when a new window, and we're going to keep here select alignment, we're going to keep the alignment one and select sample ungroup going to clip the intermediate ones. Material is going to keep the materialist one adhere in style sheet. It is very important. We're going to open here, have several options over here of style. And look, we got to keep the earth work here because we're dealing with this ERF, this material. And in select material, which is the last option here, is, is tied or we're going to use in order to have the quantity of materials to build the road of the aggregates, the concrete. So let's click in earthwork and hit Open. And Okay, again, okay, The asking if I want to execute the scripts, Let's click yes and Okay. And now we have our, okay, now have the report about Earth Move, move, move, mutation management. We have the cut area. We have also the current volume. Have our information here. We have the area, the few volume. And notice that if you come here to the end, you have the accumulated number, the total. And if your schedule is showing the amount negative, it means that the needed amount of earth is bigger than the amount that needs to be taken off. So you need more earth to add. And if it is positive, that's because you have more earth than you need. 13. Material Takeoff and Final Thoughts: So now in order to finish our course, we're going to do the quantitative of the materials used to build the road, the asphalt at the aggregates, all the layers. So let's remember here, I'm zooming in the section of a road. Remember that we have a lot of layers that you will set configure according to your project. And so let's select here red bird. Let's go to properties. And we configured here in this first layer. So we have the pave one, that pave to that. So we have two layers of pavements over here. We have a base depth. So according to the aggregates you're, you want to use here. And we also have the suburb base. So we have the pave one pill to BaseOne and sub bass. And all of the Ras is on 0. And what we have to do first, I'm going to click Ask over here. And we have in home analyzing computer materials. We're going to select the alignment one and here the intermediate lines and click, Okay, in this new window here on the bottom, I'm going to delete these criteria. So this criteria we have here, yeah, Now that is empty. We need to import here. We're not going to work anymore. We've cut and feel, but we're going to calculate the materials. So we're going to click right here, on the bottom and on the left in import, another criteria. If you're using a Civil 3D older and older version, mine is 2021. But if you're using an older version that you don't have this important order criteria. You're going to see I just clicked. You're gonna you're gonna see it will be a ready included here. Okay, well, I'm going to select here the cut and few. Actually, sorry, I'm going to select the materialist and I'm going to click hearing copy. Copy Current Selection. I'm going to copy the actual selection and the software will personalize and create a new list of materials. And again, if your Civil 3D is older, this option we appear over here. And okay, Look how interesting areas we have, the layers over here. Material name that the name of the materials of our layers. And what are we going to do? We're going to open each one of them and we're going to do let what is inside. Okay. So we have the pavement, the base, and surveys. You can you can rename it. Okay. I'm going to type here aggregate, aggregate does, which is aggregates pavement. So we base. Okay, so let's delete what is inside. Yeah, just select and come here on this acts. And what are we going to do now? We're going to add those layers of the section of our road and we're going to divide into these categories. So first, let's select the category, the first one, pavement. And then I'm going to select the category that we, that the materials are going to, to enter here. In datatypes, select corridor shape and the corridor shape. Just, let's select pv1. Yeah, datatype, colder, shape and color shape, pv1, and click and here. And some of the first layer. Yeah. And now we're gonna add the paved to a ready here in pave. Okay, let's remember all these. You can change the name later according to the layers and the materials you're using. And now let's go to aggregates. Here is written aggregates. Carter shape and I'm going to select now Bayes one. Okay? It is a side aggregates and now we're going to select the sub bass and ready. Now we have the division of our materials configured according to the materials that we created our road. Let's click on okay. And from this moment in this materialist McKay's here it is written materialist carpet you because I already created order lists. Okay? And with this created lists going to click, Okay. And now we're going to simply match the pave one. Here. I'm going to select. Here it is. Okay. Pave one, car car dealer one, page one, and page you, Calder one, pave two and a base one. I'm going to match here. We've called one, base one and sub base color. So base here, I'm going to click, okay, everything's fine. Look now we have our material list over here. Let's open here. Okay, everything's fine. I'm going to click in. Okay. I'll teacher, but I'm not seen the report. That's because we are going to generate to create a red now. So here on the top, Let's go to volume report. Let's remember that we're here in Analyze, okay? So volume report, I'll meant keep element one, sample line, keep intermediate lines, materialist, the material list. Okay? And here in program data, let's remember what I told you about this lactone material. Yeah, you're going to keep it because if work is for movement of earth and flag material is for material takeoff. Okay? That's okay. Run the scripts and yeah, we have here our material takeoff. Look how interesting we'll have the kind of type, the area type, the square mirrors the volume, the accumulated volume. We also have the categories that we created pavement aggregate, server base. So the software go summing the layers in here. At the end we'll have the total volume. So thank you for having done the course. Congratulations, because you're trying hard and I wish you lots of success in your career, in your life, and see you next time.
