CC-016 | AutoCAD Intensive

AutoCAD® is computer-aided design (CAD) software. This industry-specific software is used by architects, engineers, and construction professionals. They rely on AutoCAD® to create precise 2D and 3D drawings for architectural, mechanical, and engineering design projects. The AutoCAD® Intensive course includes three modules and totals forty hours of training.

Module One: The first module, a total of twelve hours, starts at the very beginning. No experience with AutoCAD®. is necessary. Students will learn the fundamentals of working with the software program in our Drafting Lab and get hands-on experience creating various shapes. After this module is completed, students can:

  • Set drawing limits and scales
  • Learn to use edit commands
  • Work with layers, create text and other basic concepts
  • Turn grids on and off, set grid dimensions
  • Snap to endpoints, midpoints, and more

Module Two: The next module continues the working knowledge of essential AutoCAD® drafting tools for an additional twelve hours. Students will build on the basic digital drafting through hands-on exercises and use more advanced commands and tools. After this portion of the course, students can use functions such as:

  • Annotating
  • Working with blocks and symbols
  • Learn more in-depth details of layer functions
  • Explore layout styles, printing, plotting and publishing

Module Three: The last module, at sixteen hours, provides an overview of AutoCAD® 3D Fundamentals and Sketchup. This section of the course focuses on creating images with modeling and realistic three-dimensional renderings using software tools including:

  • UCS (User Coordinate System), Control perspective views
  • Learn rendering with commands in AutoCAD
  • Create images with modeling tools in Sketchup
