In early 2021 I sent out a survey to thousands of CAD Intentions subscribers, asking them what they would like to learn and see in an AutoCAD course. 100s of responses later and hours of compiling, researching, planning, and outlining, I've put together the course that I wish I had when learning AutoCAD.
This isn't a basic/introduction to AutoCAD course, I won't be teaching how to draw a line or circle.
It is a course that answers the questions I had and all of you have, looking for the best way to set up a drawing, wanting a clear workflow for project/drawing production, getting stumped, or wishing there was a better way. I will show you the must-have fundamentals, workflows, tips, and tricks that will help you with daily drafting/design and help you get to the next step in your AutoCAD skillset.
Whether you've been an AutoCAD user for 1 week or 5+ years I'm sure you'll benefit from the workflows, tips, and overall fundamentals showcased in the videos.
This course is packed full of years of combined experience along with practical and highly requested tutorials on everything from initial drawing setup, to pdf plotting and packaging files for final submissions or archiving.
Topics in the Course (See below for Detailed outline):
• Project Organization and Initial Drawing Setup
• Drawing Templates
• Drawing Standards/Best Practices
• Drawing Production Workflows
• Scaling, Annotative Text/Dims
• Layout Creation
• Automation using Fields
• Plotting/Print workflows
• Drawing Finalization workflows
Additional Course Info:
1. Each Topic above will be split into detailed yet compact/to the point individual videos. This makes it easy for you to jump right into a topic that you are interested in, or get a quick refresher at any point. It also addresses the #1 noted response in the survey of never having the time and needing quick and direct tutorials for AutoCAD.
2. In addition to the individual downloadable video files, all of the example .dwg files used and finished in the video will be available for download so you can follow along or check your results against mine! This will also include a .dwt drawing template that we create in the Course!
