With the variety of projects for which engineers can use Civil 3D (roads, highways, highway exchanges, bridges, pipelines, ports, dams, canals and more), the range of the software’s design and modeling is equally enticing. Users can create and edit surfaces, measure cutting and filing materials (like pavement needed for a highway), grade slopes, simulate water, create waterway corridors, and define break lines and contours.
Getting the most out of Civil 3D, however, requires a workstation designed to drive performance—and not just any system will work. Civil 3D is most effective when supported by a high-frequency workstation with fewer cores. An ideal option to supply Civil 3D with the power needed to manipulate and interact with large data sets is the APEXX S3 equipped with a six core Intel® Core™ i7 processor overclocked to 4.8-GHz and featuring NVIDIA® Quadro™graphics.
