Review the essential features and techniques every designer needs to know to work with AutoCAD for Mac, including creating and editing geometry, working with layers, and annotating drawings.
- [Voiceover] Hi. I'm Jim LaPier. Welcome to AutoCAD for Mac Essential Training. This course will go over all the basic features and techniques of AutoCAD for Mac so you can get a feel for using the program. We'll begin with exploring the interface components and look at some of the conventions that AutoCAD uses to help you draft. Then we'll move on to creating geometry and then modifying that geometry to suit our needs. We'll explore the layering system, create some layouts to leverage our geometry, add dimensions and annotations and eventually plot our drawings.
Finally, we'll run through some of the basics of 3D in AutoCAD for Mac. Whether you're a seasoned AutoCAD user looking at switching or a novice drafter looking to learn the ins and outs of AutoCAD for Mac, this course will give you all the tools so you can use the program to its fullest, so let's get started.
