Autocad 2d and 3d Training

Autodesk AutoCAD is the industry standard for computer-aided design and drafting. In this course you will learn to use effectively the many features of AutoCAD 2D, including commands, plotting, crosshatching, and palettes, you will also learn to use effectively the many features of AutoCAD 3D including commands, objects, surfaces, and solids. The instructor will show you how to work with dimensions, regions, boundaries, as well as understanding isometrics and viewports, how to manipulate backgrounds, light, material, and landscaping to your needs. Upon course completion, you will be able to handle AutoCAD 2D skills and produce professionally executed drawings aautocad 2dnd also take your designs beyond 2D to the next dimension – 3D.

Target Audience

Engineers, architects, draftsmen, designers, advertisers, interior designers or anyone interested in acquiring skills in AutoCAD or whose job depends on drawings or sketches to convey information or ideas.
