This AutoCAD class is offered online and onsite. We start at the very beginning, using CAD to draw drafting symbols, kitchen and bath fixtures, and then creating a floor plan. We assemble everything into one deliverable sheet file. Learn the AutoCAD user interface and AutoCAD commands, including Drawing, Modifying, Layering Standards, Text, Dimensioning and Plotting. Instructor-led. Strong student engagement. Real-world, project-based learning.
Offered online and onsite, this course uses AutoCAD to draw an abbreviated set of construction documents for a residential project: floor plan, roof plan, foundation plan, electrical plan & building elevations. Create and insert blocks, externally reference files. Learn when to use those commands to optimize project workflow. This online AutoCAD class is taught by an Autodesk Certified Instructor who is a project manager and uses AutoCAD daily.
This AutoCAD class is offered online and onsite. We create a floor plan, multi-scale enlarged plans, roof plan and building elevations for a more complicated one-story residence. We also develop a titleblock from scratch, including all the associated file components. This residential project will be continued in CAD 302. Excellent real-world, project-based learning. You will learn important, relevant & practical CAD workflow skills in this online AutoCAD course
In this online AutoCAD real-world, project-based course, we really get going. We complete a full set of construction documents for the residential project we started in CAD 301. We learn how to make big changes. There are more building elevations and we add building sections & wall sections. We XREF & modify detail drawings. Use metes and bounds to make an architectural site plan. Create a cover sheet with notes and import a rendering. Truly a great course!
In this online AutoCAD class, we create architectural details using the two dominant methods used in architectural and engineering firms – creating detail drawings from scratch and also by referencing and clipping information from other drawings in the construction document set. The detail drawings (drawn at different scales) are referenced into a deliverable sheet file, which is plotted at 1:1. Learn to organize detail drawings so that your detail library is consistent.
This online AutoCAD course teaches you the skills you need to succeed as a CAD and Project Manager. You will learn best-practice Project Management skills and how to configure AutoCAD for an office. Project management and organization, file naming and the National CAD Standards are presented. Learn how to successfully update/adapt “inherited projects” to conform with office project/file management standards.
In this online 3D AutoCAD course, you learn 3D modeling skills from a licensed architect. The skills and workflow taught reflect real-world 3D projects. Develop your 3D model model of a beach cottage by extracting information from 2D architectural plans and elevations. You will use solids, surfaces and booleans to create a 3D presentation model including 3D topographic site and other relevant site components using 3D modeling commands and tools.
This online Intermediate 3D AutoCAD course is designed as a follow-on to CAD305. Taught by a licensed architect, who is also an AutoCAD Certified Instructor, the course will focus on modeling many props, which will be integrated into the 3D model you created in CAD305. You will learn more advanced 3D AutoCAD modeling skills, including solids, surfaces, meshes and wireframe objects.
This is a seminar review course for the AutoCAD Certification Exam. No answers to the Certification Exam are provided. Valuable overview concepts of the types of questions, the format for the questions, the workflow and the methodology/logic behind the kinds of questions on the exam are presented. Taught by an AutoCAD Certified Instructor who has worked with AutoCAD for over 15 years.
