After learning the basics of AutoCAD many students want to move on to more advanced concepts. 3D is becoming more popular as it makes it much easier to visualize the result of a project. In moving into 3D however, there is much more to learn than just the 3D modeling aspect. To present the finished image, students need to know about camera placement, lighting the scene, and applying realistic-looking materials.
This course was designed for the AutoCAD user with experience in 2D that would like to learn to use the 3D commands. The course includes practice files and a realistic project to allow students to put into practice the skills as they learn them. Throughout this AutoCAD course, students are creating their own real-world realistic project that is indicative of the kind students might be asked to create in the workplace. Students will learn how to produce a professional model to industry standards and hopefully inspire them to do even more!
In this course, advanced 2D drawing methods will be covered before moving on to 3D modeling and showing how to model a range of objects. We then use these methods to convert a 2D drawing into a 3D model that we can work with, in the following chapters.
During the course, students will be following along to create a 3D building from the dimensions given. After this course, students will have all the skills necessary to create their own 3D models whether for business or leisure purposes.
With the skills learned in this course, students have a highly desired skill that can help them get jobs and make money as an AutoCAD Drafter.
AutoCAD is an industry-standard and most widely used application when it comes to CAD software, so it’s important for students to learn it if they want to be professional designers.
2 – 3D solid modelling
3 – Solid Editing
4 – Visualizing Solids
7 – Rendering and Presentation
The course will be conducted in a computer lab and students will have hands on experience in using the software and its application in creating Building Models.
Whether you’re working as an engineer, architect, or designer, AutoCAD is the software you’ll likely use the most. AutoCAD is instrumental to a wide array of design and engineering jobs, and a firm understanding of the software is a great way to boost your resume.
