Autocad Level 1
Retail Cost: $2000
Length: 40 Hours
Objective: The objective of AutoCAD 2020: Fundamentals is to enable you to create, modify, and work with a 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software
Prerequisite: Basic Computer Skills
Short Description: This program will teach students architectural designers to draw 3D objects such as walls, doors and windows, with more intelligent data associated with them, rather than simple objects such as lines and circles. The data can be programmed to represent specific architectural products sold in the construction industry, or extracted into a data file for pricing, materials estimation, and other values related to the objects
Covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The guide begins with learning the basic tools for creating and editing 2D drawings. It then continues to explore the tools used to annotate drawings by adding text, hatching, dimensions, and tables. More advanced tools, such as working with blocks and setting up layouts, are introduced to improve your efficiency with the software. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the essential tools and concepts, such as:
Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface
Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools
Organizing drawing objects on layers
Using reusable symbols (blocks)
Preparing a layout to be plotted
Adding text, hatching, and dimensions
Continues with more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template, creating annotation styles, and how to work with external references. You learn such skills as:
Using more advanced editing and construction techniques
Adding parametric constraints to objects
Creating local and global blocks
Setting up layers, styles, and templates
Attaching External References
