Join Jeff Bartels as he covers the most important features of this industry-standard drafting and design application in AutoCAD 2011 Essential Training. This course begins with a tour of AutoCAD's interface and the tools used to create basic shapes. It then focuses on the methods used to modify and refine geometry while emphasizing accuracy and good habits to build a solid design foundation. The course covers using 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 title, Jeff shares industry techniques used in production and reinforces concepts using practical examples. Exercise files are included with the course.
If you are a Premium member of the Lynda.com Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on a disk, you have access to the Exercise Files use throughout this title. Now, I have placed my Exercise Files folder on my Desktop, you can place yours wherever you like. I have organized the folders based on the chapter number and inside each folder are the drawings we'll use throughout that chapter. In many cases, if I thought it was helpful, I have left you with the finished example. If you are a monthly or annual subscriber to Lynda.com, but you don't have access to the Exercise Files, you can follow along with your own drawings.
