AutoCAD 2010 Essential Training covers the most important features of this industry-standard 2D drafting and design application. Professional designer Jeff Bartels begins with a tour of AutoCAD's interface and the tools used to create basic shapes. He then focuses on the methods used to modify and refine geometry while emphasizing accuracy and good habits to build a solid design foundation. Jeff shows how to use layers, line types, and colors to organize a drawing file and explains how to efficiently annotate a design and prepare it for final output. Throughout the course, Jeff shares techniques used in the industry and reinforces the lessons with practical examples. Exercise files accompany this course.
(Music playing.) Welcome to the AutoCAD 2010 Essential Training title. My name is Jeff Bartels and it's truly an honor for me to be able to work with you and take you step-by- step through AutoCAD 2010. AutoCAD is the industry-standard tool for 2D drafting and design. It's so popular in fact that you'd be hard-pressed to find a form of construction or production work today that doesn't involve AutoCAD in some way. I've based this title on techniques that have proven successful in the classroom and in the real world of production drafting.
We'll start our training by taking a thorough look at AutoCAD's interface. Next, we'll begin creating simple shapes. As we become familiar with the basics, we'll add to our tools, learning more productive ways to create and modify our geometry. Soon our drawings will become larger and we'll learn how to organize them using layers, line types, and colors. Next, we will get into annotation and add text, dimensions, and leaders to our drawings. Finally, we'll learn how to create professional looking plots of our designs using a standardized title block.
So if you're interested in architecture, surveying, civil or mechanical engineering, or design, this title is perfect for you. Well, we've got a lot to talk about and I've got a lot of things I can't wait to show you. So let's get started.
