AutoCAD

autocad-glance-stats.jpgComputer Aided Drafting

Autodesk AutoCAD is one of the world’s leading 2D and 3D Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) design tools used by architects, engineers and other professionals who require computer drafting and drawing techniques in their work. Come learn AutoCAD from an instructor who has mastered the program and uses it in the workplace.

Register and complete any of our AutoCAD classes and receive access to the AutoCAD student version for three years at no charge. The student version contains the same AutoCAD software as the commercial version, but is to be used for student work only. Access information for the student version is provided at the first class session.

AutoCAD - Upcoming Classes

Explore design ideas using basic drawing techniques and the latest digital software ‐ with a primary focus on the creation of computer‐modeled 3D objects within a 2D display environment! Learn how to integrate various software packages with Sketch Up, and create 3 dimensional geometry using the 2‐dimensional surfaces of lines, circles, polygons, arcs and freehand curves. Note: The texbook is included in the cost of this class. Prerequisites: a basic working knowledge of computers and the Windows operating environment. Knowledge of any .DWG compatible CAD software program will be helpful during some classes.
