What you'll learn in this autocad class:

Beginner AutoCAD Class Overview

AutoCAD is a suite of popular CAD (Computer Aided Design) software products for 2 and 3-dimensional design and drafting. Developed by Autodesk, the AutoCAD family of products has become the most widely used CAD software in the world. AutoCAD is a vector graphics drawing program, and it uses entities such as lines, polylines, circles, arcs, and text as the foundation for more complex objects. AutoCAD's native file format, AutoCAD DWG, and its interchange file format, DXF, have become the de facto gold standard in the industry for the interchange of 2D CAD data.

In this beginner AutoCAD class, you'll learn basic drawing and modifying techniques for drafting and technical drawing, using AutoCAD to create drawings that can be used to build real objects both mechanical and architectural.

You'll learn the basic methods of printing and plotting layouts and sheets, how to work between model space and paper space, and how to scale drawings through viewports. Master techniques for inserting blocks, making text, dimensioning drawings, and working with layers and templates.
