Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 8, 2009
APEX Web Media, longtime source for intuitive and cost effective video training for professional software, is now offering a new AutoCAD tutorial video series for version 2010 both online and on CD / DVD. The AutoCAD 2010: Mastering 2D Concepts Tutorial Video offers both beginners and intermediate users a smart introduction to the latest version of the software, covering essential drawing, plotting and editing skills that form the basis of every kind of work you can use the software to do. Written and narrated by Autodesk Approved Instructor (AAI) Shaun Bryant, the training incorporates extremely detailed instruction with a step by step presentation that provides a natural way to learn even advanced techniques.
Autodesk has become well known for making each new version of AutoCAD better than the last, and AutoCAD 2010 is no exception. Some users found it hard to adjust to the new ribbon-based user interface in 2009, and Autodesk engineers have taken notice. The ribbon is now contextualized so that it automatically adjusts to relevant tools when you highlight different objects. Moreover, it's now easier to add toolbar commands, and you can import customized dashboard panels from 2008 and 2007. In addition to interface enhancements, the program has improved support for 3D printing and free-form design, PDF export and import functionality, new measurement tools and new design features that incorporate geometric and dimensional constraints. The improvements are immediately noticeable, and they make version 2010 an especially smart upgrade or first-time buy.
This AutoCAD tutorial video starts with the basics, but quickly gets users working hands on within the AutoCAD workspace. In the first lessons, Bryant familiarizes users with the software's interface and settings so they know where to find key tools and features. From there, he shows how to use blocks, layers and drawing commands to begin real creation. Users learn to manipulate and reuse parts of their designs to create uniform and complex variations and find out how to finish, publish and share their work with others. Realtime video examples, with provided sample files, reinforce the instruction at every point to keep things clear.
While the training takes a logical, incremental approach, it also offers considerable flexibility. Tutorial videos can be paused, rewound or fast-forwarded at any time, and because lessons are divided based on specific subjects, it's just as easy to skip around or repeat sections as it is to go in order. Everyone learns at a different pace and has different schedule demands, and this effective tutorial has been created with this in mind. The competitive pricing is a freedom all its own. The standard cost is a fraction of a seminar course, and special rates apply to multi-user purchases and educational groups.
