AutoCAD 2D. Intensive course. This is a 2D AutoCAD course for beginners, but it can be also interesting for those, who used to learn the software many years ago and is not updated about plenty new features. Even if you are learning AutoCAD with another course, you could make your skills stronger, using the unique system, suggested in this one. All video lectures are recorded with AutoCAD 2022 for Windows. If you have a Mac, you can also use the same instructions, but when in a video we activate a command from the ribbon, you can activate them from menus or from the command line, or just typing in the command’s name on your keyboard.
The biggest benefit of this course is a nice combination of context-independent and context-oriented exercises. When you do the first – you form the skills of using AutoCAD tools. When you do the second – you improve your ability to see basic geometric forms in complicated mechanical or architectural drawings. The course consists of 11 sections.
The first section helps you understand the User Interface and general rules of working in AutoCAD environment.
Sections 2 to 11 are called here Lessons 1 to 10. Every lesson consists of 6 steps:
- Context-independent training
- Context-oriented exercises
In the introduction I talk about how the lesson is organized and which tasks may need more attention.
In the Toolbox video the use of AutoCAD commands is demonstrated.
Context independent training is a set of simple exercises, helping you focus on using AutoCAD tools.
Context oriented exercises help you understand in which drawing context you may need those tools.
Practical work – is a drawing.
And in the Summary lecture we revise the most important moments of the lesson.
P.S. My English is good, but not perfect. I hope nobody will use this course to learn English 🙂
Who this course is for:
- Beginner AutoCAD users (0 level) or users, who need more intensive practice.
