AutoCAD - 3d Modelling

Overview

This courseware provides a basic understanding of how to design and modify 3D models with AutoCAD®. Creating 3D models helps users better visualize and present designs that are created with CAD. This courseware introduces students to the fundamental concepts and workflows for creating 3D models with AutoCAD. Students explore how to create and modify both solid and surface models. Students also learn how to output 3D models from the CAD system to either paper or a distributable, electronic version. The concepts and practices taught will help students take their AutoCAD designs beyond 2D to the next dimension – 3D!

Duration

2 Days (9:30am – 4:30pm) Demonstration & Practical Exercises

Prerequisites

Delegates should have a working knowledge of: The current or a previous release of AutoCAD, Creating and editing basic AutoCAD objects and Creating and working with Layouts.
