AutoDesk AUTO CAD 2D Training Course

4 days

This course includes our everything you need to start a 3D journey in current market needs

Overview

Learn AutoCAD and Get Certified as an Autodesk Certified User. This career enhancing accreditation is not included in the cost of your course.

On this intensive AutoCAD Jumpstart course, you’ll learn all of the basic commands necessary for professional 2D drawing, design, and drafting using AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. You’ll also learn about the features, commands and techniques for becoming more productive when creating, annotating, and printing drawings with AutoCAD.

Hands-on exercises throughout the AutoCAD Training course explore how to create 2D production drawings. The exercises are provided in both a printed format as well as an on-screen format that can be viewed next to AutoCAD.

Who is this course for?

This AutoCAD Training course is designed for new users of AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT. This is for delegates who would like their AutoCAD experience to be proven with an official certification from Autodesk.

Assumed Knowledge

You’ll know about drafting, design, or engineering principles although this knowledge is not essential it will be helpful.

What you will learn

You’ll learn to navigate the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT user interfaces, use the fundamental features of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, use the precision drafting tools in AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT to develop accurate technical drawings and present drawings in a detailed and visually impressive way.

You’ll learn how to use the powerful tools and techniques for drawing, dimensioning, and printing 2D drawings.

AutoDesk Auto CAD 3D Training Course

If you’re already a master of AutoCAD 2D drawing, it may be time for you to move on to the exciting world of 3D modelling. In this hands-on course based on real-world, industry-specific design scenarios, you’ll explore the fundamental concepts and workflows for creating 3D models using AutoCAD. You’ll learn how to present your designs before they’re even finished using visualisation tools, model walk and fly throws, materials, and lighting. Afterwards, you’ll be one step closer to making your designs real as an advanced AutoCAD user and confident 3D designer.

Overview

Using hands-on exercises representing real-world, industry-specific design scenarios, students explore the fundamental concepts and workflows for creating 3D models using AutoCAD. Students learn how to create and modify both solid and surface models. This AutoCAD Training course also teaches students how to present their designs while they are still being created, using visualisation tools such as visual styles, model walk and fly throws, materials, and lighting. Students also learn how to output 3D models from AutoCAD to either paper distributable or electronic version.

Who is this course for?

This AutoCAD Training course is for designers who are interested in 3D world design.

Assumed Knowledge

We expect you to be proficient in working with 2D objects and have already attended our AutoCad 2D courses or has the same relevant experience, creating and editing AutoCAD objects.

What you will learn

After completing this course, students will be able to; represent a design by creating solid primitives, solid or surface models from cross-sectional geometry, or composite models from multiple solid models, complete a solid model design by adding the necessary features to detail, duplicate and position 3D models, convert 2D objects to 3D objects, document a 3D design by creating 2D drawings for production and visualization, communicate design ideas using visual styles, lights, model walk-through tools and renderings.
