Learn AutoCAD with videos

image There are at least two ways to learn AutoCAD;

  • the first is taking a formal course, the price of your city and the number of days you can take
  • the second is to see a technician do the work we need to draw, with the opportunity to stop, repeat it and try it alone.

This is a AutoCAD course based on self-taught learning through videos, in short has three advantages:

1. Step by step videosimage

When a student wants to start AutoCAD on their own they are convinced that the biggest problem is having no idea where to start. So the course, by showing the plan as it will be at the end and going step by step building it gives the student a comprehensive view of what is the mechanics of AutoCAD work.

The videos is an easy way to learn AutoCAD, since, you can stop at any time, repeat or advance manually in case of the impatient.

2 The most used 25 commands in AutoCAD

When a student takes an AutoCAD book that may have cost him $ 45, he despairs of not being able to apply it, because just to explain the interface 11 dedicates enough pages to fill patience.

Although AutoCAD has a large number of commands, the course focuses on the 25 with which the greatest amount of work is done in 2D construction drawings. These commands exist under the same principle of use from the version 2.4 of AutoCAD in 1986, as time goes by the user interface has changed but the commands continue to provide the same utility as is the compass and set of squares on a drawing board.

These 25 commands are: 11 to create objects, 13 to edit them and one to reference. Additionally some additional functions such as printing and dimensioning are shown. In the end, the student has learned to use the interface commands without having had a single chapter dedicated to it.

3. A real constructive project.

imageAlthough the course shows the functionality of these 25 main commands, it is in the development of the project where it is known its practicality.

The project takes this sequence:

  • Elaboration of a new drawing
  • Creating layers
  • Creation of axes
  • Paredes
  • Doors and windows
  • Floors and textures
  • Furniture
  • Dimensioning
  • Impresión
