Technology training firm InfiniteSkills Inc. this week released its "Learning AutoCAD 2015" and "Learning AutoCAD 2015 LT" Tutorials, introductory courses covering the basic drawing and editing skills in AutoCAD and providing a firm foundation in the core features of this industry-standard computer assisted design (CAD) program.
Released in March, AutoCAD 2015 features a refreshed user interface designed to improve the design process, along with other time-saving productivity tools, including the new tab page, ribbon galleries, and command preview.
Infinite Skills' Learning AutoCAD 2015 and Learning AutoCAD LT 2015 tutorials provide students and professionals with an expert-guided introduction to learning the essential features and best practices to begin creating and publishing AutoCAD drawings for professional practice.
Course author Brian Benton is an engineering technician, CAD Service Provider, technical writer, and AutoCAD instructor. He has more than 20 years of experience using AutoCAD in multiple design fields. He has also served in various leadership roles for Autodesk, contributing to the software development process, and editing the company's newsletter, HotNews.
Following a course overview and introduction to AutoCAD 2015, Benton begins with a chapter covering the new features in the latest version of AutoCAD, looking at the changes in the user interface and other enhancements.
He then explains in detail how to work in the AutoCAD interface and workspaces, and how to perform basic operations such as object selection, configure units, navigate the coordinate system, and use the pan and zoom tools.
Benton then demonstrates basic drawing and editing techniques. He looks at key drawing tools such as polylines, and explores how to draw using various geometric shapes. He then looks at how to use editing tools such as rotate and scale, mirror, fillet and chamfer, and many more. Both chapters assimilate the tools and skills covered into final chapter projects.
Other chapters include detailed lessons on working with layers, adding annotations, using blocks and dynamic blocks, and how to plot and publish designs.
The course closes with a final project where Benton assists students in producing a design that incorporates all the tools and skills learned throughout the course.
"In these courses you will learn how to draw and how to draw accurately," Benton says.
"Each course will provide a foundation of skills that you will be able to take with you into any design field."
