Civil 3D Interface
The Civil 3D interface is the working environment where we can find the tools and commands. Like any other software, the best way to start learning Civil 3D is to first familiarize ourselves with the user interface.
- First the Drawing window: this is the main drawing and design window. It allows you to manipulate and visualize objects in your current work.
- The Command line: It allows you to launch an AutoCAD command or input drafting options
- The Application Menu, which allows you to navigate and manage files.
- The Quick Access Toolbar: It is used to display most commonly used commands.
- The Ribbon: it contains commands needed for routine tasks.
- The Toolspace: This is the main window for managing data, setting parameters and styles for the drawing.
- The Ribbon: Contains commands needed for routine tasks. The Ribbon is a feature implemented starting with the 2010 version of Civil 3D. It’s a practical replacement of the old menu bar. This menu still exists but is hidden by default. The ribbon is accessed by typing ribbon at the command line.
