Technology training firm InfiniteSkills Inc. last week released Learning AutoCAD 2013 Tutorial, an introductory course designed for beginning users of the computer assisted design program that has been an industry standard for decades.
AutoCAD 2013 is the 27th release of AutoCAD, and while many basic features remain consistent from year to year, the new version offers several updates and new features that can be both helpful and challenging for new users.
InfiniteSkills' Learning AutoCAD 2013 Training - DVD provides students and professionals a crash-course in the latest AutoCAD version. Complete with a section dedicated to the new features, the course is designed to gradually build a basic skill set, and then bring those skills together in a final AutoCAD design project.
Course author Brian Benton is an engineering technician, CAD Service Provider, technical writer and AutoCAD instructor. He has 18 years' experience using AutoCAD in various design fields. He has also served in various leadership roles for the AutoDesk newsletter HotNews, and worked in development for AutoDesk.
"The most challenging thing about learning AutoCAD," Benton says, "is the sheer amount of things to learn. So what I did was think very carefully about the most important tools for beginners, and how I could design the course to implement as many tools as possible."
Benton is careful to point out that knowing AutoCAD tools is only part of using AutoCAD efficiently. "I designed the course," he adds, "not only to teach what each command does, but to make sure to demonstrate how to actually use commands in real life circumstances."
After getting up to speed AutoCAD basics, students learn how to draw in AutoCAD, picking up fundamentals and learning time-saving techniques employed by veteran users.
The InfiniteSkills' Learning AutoCAD 2013 Video training course is organized around the construction of a movie theater. As the course progresses, students build sections of the overall design, learning new techniques such as working in the coordinate system, working with dimensions and measurement units, drawing with geometric shapes and polylines, and placing objects and object arrays such as the seats in the movie theater.
Additional features covered include working with blocks, applying text fields to a drawing, printing features, and much more.
