          This AutoCAD Basics course will introduce you to the fundamentals of using AutoCAD for Computer-Aided Design (CAD). You will start at the very beginning—creating drafting symbols, kitchen and bath fixtures, a floor plan, and bringing everything together on a deliverable printed sheet. You will also create an abbreviated set of construction documents, such as a floor plan, roof plan, structural foundation plan, electrical plan, and building elevations. During this online AutoCAD course, you will learn about paper/model space and create deliverable sheet files.

          If you need to get an introduction to AutoCAD, this AutoCAD course for beginners will get you up –and running. This class is hands-on, real-world applicable, and includes optional projects.

          Learning Outcomes

          What you will learn:
          • Create drafting symbols, kitchen and bath fixtures, a floor plan, and integrate all information into one deliverable sheet file
          • Understand variations required to generate drawings as well as annotations (used to explain design aspects) and real-world model components
          • Create and insert blocks and external reference files to understand the appropriate times to apply those skill sets
          • Demonstrate layer and file management, external file referencing, use of model/layout environments, and user coordinate systems
