AutoCAD 302 – AutoDesk AutoCAD 3D Drawing & Modeling

Class Description
AutoCAD 220 3D Drawing and Modeling introduces Participants who are proficient with the 2D commands in the AutoCAD® software to the concepts and methods of 3D modeling. This class provides a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of 3D and explores the main features of the advanced 3D Modeling workspace in the AutoCAD software. In this 2-day class, the instructor guides the Participants through hands-on practicum and introduces core concepts using interactive tutorials and open-ended projects, which can be completed in any order, thanks to downloadable data sets, an especially useful feature for Participants and professionals studying for Autodesk AutoCAD certification. Starting with basic 2D drawing and progressing through organizing objects with groups and blocks, creating and editing text, and 3D modeling, the process Participants will learn in this class is ready to take to work.

Suggested Prerequisites

Students should have a solid background in the AutoCAD software because AutoCAD software tools and concepts are essential for working with the 3D Drawing and Modeling software. We highly recommend our AutoCAD Essentials or equivalent knowledge.  We also suggest that you have the AutoCad software before starting the class. You can purchase the software or obtain a trial version of it from the AutoDesk web site.
