We start at the very beginning, using AutoCAD to draft CAD symbols, kitchen and bath fixtures, and then create a floor plan. We assemble everything into one sheet file. Learn about Drawing on Layers, Adding Text, Dimensions & Plotting.
Use AutoCAD to draft a condensed set of CAD construction documents for a residential project: floor plan, roof plan, foundation plan, electrical plan & building elevations. Create, insert and link drawings. Learn the best workflow.
Develop CAD titleblock drawings from scratch. Then we draw a floor plan, multi-scale enlarged plans, roof plan and building elevations for a large one-story residence which will be continued in CAD 302.
Finish the set of CAD construction documents. Make drafting revisions. Draw building elevations, building sections & wall sections. Use metes and bounds to make a site plan. Create a cover sheet.
Create detail drawings. Learn the two dominant CAD standards A/E firms use –- making detail drawings from scratch and by referencing and clipping information from other drawings. Learn drawing standards and about organizing your details.
This course shares many of the skills you need as a CAD and Project Manager. Learn best-practice Project Management skills. Learn to manage and organize office/project drawings.
