AutoCAD Fundamentals Part 2

Who Should Attend

This courseware is designed for the new user of AutoCAD, who also has the basic understanding of the topics covered in the Part 1 class. Drafting, design, or engineering experience is a plus. It is recommended that you have a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows XP or 7, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Windows NT 4.0.


Part 2 continues with more sophisticated techniques that extend a student’s mastery of the program. For example, users go beyond the basic skill of inserting a block to learn how to create blocks, and beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template. The following areas are covered:

*Using more advanced editing and construction techniques
*Adding parametric constraints to objects
*Creating local and global blocks
*Setting up layers, styles, and templates
*Learning advanced plotting and publishing options


Upon completion of the course, the student will:

*Become familiar with the AutoCAD user interface.
*Understand the fundamental concepts and features of AutoCAD
*Use the precision drafting tools in AutoCAD to develop accurate technical drawings.
*Present drawings in a detailed and visually impressive manner.
*Develop a level of comfort and confidence with AutoCAD through hands-on experience.
