Course Code: 006

All new and regular users of AutoCAD. This course is appropriate for users from diverse fields: architects, engineers, designers, facilities planners, drafters, and others.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the student will become a confident user of the AutoCAD environment and gain the knowledge to create, modify, manipulate and print professional 2D and 3D plots efficiently.

Summary

This course consists of two parts, 2D and 3D plotting. The 2D section is designed to provide a solid foundation in the basics of 2D work. Upon completion, the student will exhibit a working knowledge of drawing commands and an ability to control the screen editor. The 3D section starts with basic 3D concepts such as viewpoint and the UCS. It then explores the techniques for modeling in 3D with surface models. The final modules cover the presentation of 3D models in layouts for plotting and as rendered images.

Who Should Attend

All new and regular users of AutoCAD. This course is appropriate for users from diverse fields: architects, engineers, designers, facilities planners, drafters, and others.

Prerequisites

Our AutoCAD workshops are designed for individuals who possess adequate background in one of the related disciplines or otherwise understand drafting or blue print reading. The focus is in teaching AutoCAD rather than explaining drafting principles
