AutoCAD is the leader in CAD drafting, and architects around the world use AutoCAD Architecture for modeling their buildings. In this course, author and teacher Paul F. Aubin will take you through the tools and techniques used by professional architects to build amazing structures with this product. Learn how to lay out simple floor plans with wall objects, which automatically form clean joints, and add windows and doors that intelligently cut wall openings. Then discover how to change the style of walls and the graphics to display all types of drawings—from small scale to large, 2D to 3D—with the click of a button. Paul will also show you how to create documentation like site plans, elevations, and sections, complete with schedules and tags.
My name is Paul F Aubin and welcome to AutoCAD Architecture Essential Training. In this course, we'll start by laying out a simple floor plan using wall objects. I'll show you how to draw walls using a variety of techniques and discuss how the walls automatically interact with each other to form clean joints. We'll add other intelligent objects to our layout such as windows and doors that automatically cut openings in the walls. We'll see ways to refine the layout using tools and tool palettes to change the style of walls and other objects incorporating such things as materials and automatic hatching.
We'll see how with the click of a mouse we can completely change the graphics used to display our drawings. Whether changing from small scale plans to large scale, presentation views to production views are switching from 2D to 3D all without redrawing. Using projects will make quick work of building models creating plans, elevations and sections, and even generating live schedules and tags and documentation packages. So if you're ready to begin leveraging the power of AutoCAD Architecture, you've come to the right place. Let's get started.
