Autodesk Civil 3D Videos
Useful Civil 3D Training from public website sources
Autodesk staff, Autodesk Reseller staff, and consultants produce a wide range of video content. Some is product sales demo, but a lot of the staff and/or consultant recordings, lists, and channels include useful application training and helpful tips and tricks for Infrastructure Design products.
Content that is significant video training is listed here.

Civil 3D Surface Extraction Tips
An IMAGINiT tech tip that that demos some useful How to Tips that extract useful area information and linear data from Civil 3D Surfaces.
See the IMAGINiT Technologies YouTube Channel.
These Surface extraction methods work on more than holes and piles in Civil 3D. That is way to easy to miss.
The Minimum Distance trick can also generate useful and editable design control from unexpected and temporary Surface sources in Civil 3D.
Transparent Commands in Civil 3D
Autodesk's Jeff Bartels walks though a review of the important and powerful Transparent Command functionality in Civil 3D.
This video is part of the 30-Minute Workout series on the Civil Immersion site.
See the Jeff Bartels YouTube Channel.
and the Civil Immersion blog.
Jeff covers and demos how the Civil 3D Transparent commands work.
He shows most of the examples with AutoCAD primitives not Civil 3D Features. Call that a regrettable AutoCAD first bias.
The effective use of Transparent commands in Civil 3D save those who employ them well hours and hours a month in production use.
This is a mission critical Civil 3D skill set.
Median Design with Corridors
Kyle Groves, a Technical Specialist at ATG, explains detailed demo of the use of Marked Point and LinktoMarkPoint tools for median design in Civil 3D.
From the ATG YouTube Channel.
This is a decent walk through of median mechanics in Civil 3D with a focus on the use and purpose of Marked Point and LinktoMarkPoint subassemblies.
Kyle also manages to dig himself a design ditch delivering an solid approach to a common design problem which is instructive all be itself.
I'm not sure of the reasons for Kyle's aversion for more Regions in his Baselines or the addition of more Baselines in the example Corridor.
The necessity of Region and Baseline management in Corridors is another deep and time consuming topic. No worries.
The details of the employment of buried lanes, Marked Points (and their relationship to Codes in Code Set Styles) and LinktoMarkPoints in Assemblies is an important series of tips.
Any Free source of Subassembly Composer PKT files we can get and modify is a good thing. Thank you, CTC Software.
