This AutoCAD Training course is designed for the experienced AutoCAD user who wants to learn more about AutoCAD. Hands-on exercises throughout the AutoCAD Training course explore how to create 2D production drawings. Using exercises representing real-world, industry-specific design scenarios, students explore the fundamental concepts and workflows for creating 3D models using AutoCAD. Students learn how to create and modify both solid and surface models. This AutoCAD Training course also teaches students how to present their designs while they are still being created, using visualization tools such as visual styles, model walk and fly throws, materials, and lighting. Students also learn how to output 3D models from AutoCAD to either paper or a distributable, electronic version.

You’ll learn how to use the powerful tools and techniques for drawing, dimensioning, and printing 2D drawings. Represent a design by creating solid primitives, solid or surface models from cross-sectional geometry, or composite models from multiple solid models, complete a solid model design by adding the necessary features to detail, duplicate, and position 3D models, convert 2D objects to 3D objects, document a 3D design by creating 2D drawings for production and visualisation, communicate design ideas using visual styles, lights, model walk-through tools, and renderings.
