Chapter 14. Manage Data

Data management is a very important and challenging aspect of civil engineering design projects. Large civil engineering projects that involve input from many design team members often involve changes during the design process. These changes need to be shared with other design team members in a way that eliminates the duplication of data. This chapter describes how Civil 3D® tools such as plan production, data shortcuts, quantity takeoff, and Autodesk® Vault can help the design process by offering designers the necessary tools for efficient data sharing and management.

In the first lesson, you use plan production tools to automate the layout and creation of plan and profile construction sheets. When you create sheets using ...
