What is AutoCAD?
AutoCAD is a computer-aided drafting (CAD) software application developed by Autodesk that enables drafters, architects, engineers, and other professionals to create two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) models of mesh and solid surfaces.AutoCAD is a computer-aided drafting (CAD) software application developed by Autodesk that enables drafters, architects, engineers, and other professionals to create two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) models of mesh and solid surfaces.
AutoCAD allows you to visually design and explore your conceptual design ideas, modify your designs using 3D free-form design tools, generate intelligent model documentation, transform your designs into 3D renderings, and turn them into cinematic-quality animated presentations.
Autodesk has also developed a few other variants of AutoCAD that address discipline-specific needs. These programs include AutoCAD Architecture, Civil 3D, Electrical, Map 3D, Mechanical, Plant 3D, MEP, P&ID, and AutoCAD LT.
This course designed to provide delegates with the basic AutoCAD commands and computer-aided-drafting concepts to draw, design, and draft. Emphasis placed on efficient and accurate drawing techniques incorporating the features, commands, and techniques for creating, editing, and printing 2D production drawings.
What are the benefits of using AutoCAD?
Individuals who work in or are currently pursuing careers in the architecture, mechanical or engineering fields will discover many benefits of using AutoCAD. The design aggregation and documentation tools built into AutoCAD not only maximize productivity but also help to streamline your design and documentation workflows, speeding projects from design to completion while automating the tedious drafting tasks that would normally be done by hand. With AutoCAD, surfaces, solids, and offset curves can be dynamically created and manipulated using
context-sensitive PressPull operations. 3D models can be imported directly into AutoCAD from a variety of applications, including SolidWorks, CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, Rhinoceros, and NX products and services allowing you to easily create intelligent 2D views. With Point Cloud tools, scanned objects can be imported with up to 2 billion data points, allowing existing environmental data to be used to help you start your projects. Physical 3D prototypes of your designs can be quickly created using AutoCAD’s 3D printing capabilities.
