Description

This is a course designed to learn AutoCAD from scratch.

AutoCAD is the most popular software for computer-aided design. It is the basic platform for areas such as civil engineering, architecture, mechanical design and simulation. It is the ideal software to start, knowing the design principles to later apply it to specialized software in vertical disciplines such as Revit (Architecture, 3D Max), Revit MEP (Electromechanical / Plumbing), Civil Engineering (Structure, Advance Steel, Robot), Topography and civil works (Civil 3D).

#AulaGEO

Includes a step-by-step explanation of the main commands with which 90% of designs are built in AutoCAD.

Aditionally includes a step by step excercise of an architectural plan from a house, where is applied the commands doing this lessons:

  • Introduction

  • Layers Formation
