We start at the very beginning, using AutoCAD to draw drafting 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 draw an abbreviated set of 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 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 construction documents. Make drawing 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.
Learn 3D modeling skills from a licensed architect on a real-world 2D to 3D project. Create a 3D model of a beach cottage & a site. Add palm trees. Save perspective views. Print on a sheet.
This course focuses on modeling 3D props for a rendering. The props will be brought into the 3D model you made in CAD 305. Learn more advanced 3D AutoCAD modeling & about using cameras.
A seminar review for the AutoCAD Certification Exam. Presents valuable overview concepts of the types & formats of questions, the workflow & the methods/logic behind the kinds of questions.
