Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of AutoCAD Mobile App.
- [Instructor] So what should you know before you start this AutoCAD mobile app course? Well one of the things you should really know is all the basic methodology and terminology that you use when you're running the standard, vanilla AutoCAD application. Now to learn that sort of knowledge you need to go and do the AutoCAD 2018 Essential Training Course on the website. And once you've done that you know all the standard methodologies and terminologies that are available in AutoCAD.
Now the reason I say that you should know that is you should be a fairly seasoned AutoCAD user before you start using the mobile app. The whole idea is that it's allowing you to take your AutoCAD desktop out of the office and in essence, take it out onsite and utilize the Cloud and the internet to work remotely. So, just be aware of that and make sure that you've done your essential training so that you are a reasonably seasoned user. Now the other thing that you should know when you're working in this particular AutoCAD mobile app course, is that I'll be using the latest version of AutoCAD at the given time, which AutoCAD 2018.
I will also be using the latest version of the AutoCAD mobile app, and I will be using a premium subscription version not the basic free version. Now the reason I'm doing that is to show you all of the technology available in the AutoCAD mobile app. You will also need to have what is known as an Autodesk ID. Now, how do you get an Autodesk ID? Well it's very simple, you go to Google and you type in Autodesk ID and it will take you to the page where you can set one up.
An Autodesk ID allows you basically to sign in to all the different areas of the Autodesk Cloud, one of those is A360 Drive, which we will be using during this particular course. How do you know if you're signed in to your Autodesk ID? Well if you look up at the top of the screen at the moment where I'm in the Intro_CABIN drawing in AutoCAD 2018. Can you see up here, I've got a little blue sort of head and shoulders symbol? That means I'm signed in to my Autodesk A360 account.
And you can see the name of my account there. Cadfmconsultants, it should say, that's the name of my company, and that's my appropriate company login for my Autodesk ID. Now it doesn't have to be a company, it can be an individual ID, you might be an individual using your own name and terminology for your particular ID with Autodesk. It doesn't matter, as long as you've got that Autodesk ID, that is an essential requirement for this particular course. So let's get you into the course now, and get you working and learning how to use that AutoCAD mobile app, with, obviously, as I've just said, your Autodesk ID.

- Uploading documents
- Creating projects
- Adding your team
- Adding drawings to A360 Drive
