AUTOCAD 2D & 3D

What is AutoCAD? 

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the general term that applies to computers in the design of houses, office buildings, interiors and anything else that previously required hands-on drafting. AutoCAD is a specific piece of software used by many architects and designers for commercial design purposes.

This course explores the three-dimensional viewing and construction capabilities of AutoCAD. Topics covered include a review of point coordinate entry and the user coordinate system (UCS). Spherical and cylindrical coordinate access, 3D viewing techniques, 3D geometry construction, solid modelling surface meshes, and regions are also introduced. The use of multiple viewports for 3D constructions and a standard engineering layout are covered. The creation of presentation graphics using bitmap files, shading, and rendering is also discussed.
