AutoCAD Essentials is a multi-part series that takes a more modular approach to this massive program, used for everything from 2D and 3D CAD design, drafting, and modeling to architectural drawing and engineering projects. In this installment, author Jeff Bartels concentrates on the particulars of creating basic geometry in AutoCAD, including assigning imperial or metric units of measurement, using object snaps to control accuracy, and drawing and transforming basic lines and shapes. The last chapter in the course tests your newfound skills in a short project.
This lesson is going to work a little different than the others. You see, in this lesson, you're going to show me what you can do. On the screen, we have a small mechanical part. What I'd like you to do is take the skills you've learned so far and re-create this geometry using the provided information. This example will give you a great opportunity to put the various tools we've looked at together to complete a small project. When you're finished, move on to the next video and you can watch how I approached the creation of this same object. Take a little time at this part, see what you can do, and when you're ready, I'll see you on the other side.
