Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of AutoCAD: Spaces and Workspaces.
- [Instructor] So what should you know before taking this particular AutoCAD course? Well, the primary thing that you should know before you take this AutoCAD course is a basic knowledge of AutoCAD. Now what you should have done before you take this particular course is to have at least covered the Learning AutoCAD course available in the library. The Learning AutoCAD course gives you all the basic concepts and methodologies that you need to know to drive AutoCAD. Then, you take a deeper dive into perhaps this particular course, to learn more about the functionality of AutoCAD, to go deeper and build your knowledge of AutoCAD. So you really should know your basic AutoCAD methodologies, and you get those from the Learning AutoCAD course. The other thing that you should know about this particular course is it's been recorded using AutoCAD 2020, which is the latest version of AutoCAD. So the interface may be subtly different to the interface that you might be using in an older version of AutoCAD. But don't worry about that, all of the methodologies and concepts are the same, or incredibly similar, so there won't be any dramatic changes that you need to worry about. So, what should you know before you take this AutoCAD course? You should know a basic knowledge of AutoCAD from the Learning AutoCAD course in the library, and you need to know that we are using the latest version of AutoCAD, which is AutoCAD 2020.
