AutoCAD Fundamentals & Workflows:
A Course for Designers/Drafters in a Hurry!

Current Course Price is $97, Price will be going up soon!

Last year, 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 probably 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!

Why Join the CAD Support Community?

Over the last few years of working remotely, one thing that's really stood out to me and contributed to my general success and learning has been a few group chats/message boards I have with friends and co-workers where we share CAD tips, go to with issues, project wins/losses, ask questions and solve issues together.

I feel these small communities/groups/masterminds whatever you want to call them have been a huge part of my growth and sanity over the years. Making friends and great connections along the way is important to our success as designers and professionals, having a sounding board to bounce ideas off of, share new and cool tech with, and ask questions about career advice like performance reviews, goals etc... is irreplaceable.

As the CAD Intentions blog ( and youtube channel ( have grown, so have the number of dedicated viewers and readers such as your selves!

Along with the increase in viewers, so have the emails, questions, and comments increased!

I get anywhere from 5 to 10 requests a week for various forms of AutoCAD help, 1on1 consulting, custom tutorial videos and general review/feedback requests.

I decided that this year I wanted to create a group and community where we can all go to have our own Community/Group Chat, ask each other questions, overcome hurdles, set goals and keep each other accountable, share interesting news and projects we're working on, give/receive feedback, learn about new technology, tips/tricks, and more.

Basically providing a sounding board and hang-out to share ideas and ask questions, and become our very own CAD Support and news feed.

This community is a perfect fit for Designs, Drafters, and Engineers that want to learn and advance their career and skills with CAD and the engineering industry.

Everything from AutoCAD & C3D questions, asking for help when working through CAD Courses, career development advice, and general support, it's a perfect fit for those of us looking for a like-minded community!
