Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning AutoCAD Civl 3D 2014 Tutorial," an intermediate course designed to prepare student and professional designers for modeling and presenting 3D projects in AutoCAD.
AutoCAD 2015 is equipped with a powerful set of 3D design tools, allowing users to create different kinds of 3D models, including solid primitives, surface models, or composite models from multiple solids. AutoCAD's 3D features can also be used to produce walkthroughs, using lighting and other visualization tools to render and animate 3D designs.
Infinite Skills' Learning AutoCAD 3D 2015 Tutorial Video takes users from the basics of learning to navigate the 3D workspace and use 3D tools, through the tools and techniques for drawing and editing, and through to the final rendering and presentation stages.
Course author Seth Cohen is currently a vice president of training at CADManage, a world-wide consulting company for AutoCAD Civil 3D and other CAD programs. He is an AutoCAD 2014 Certified professional, and an AutoCAD Civil 3D implementation expert with a level five certification as a geospatial technical specialist. He has worked with major companies, government agencies, and individuals consulting, training, and implementing CAD software.
Following an introduction to working in the 3D environment in AutoCAD, Cohen covers the basic 3D model types, demonstrating how to create surface and wireframe models.
Students then learn to produce a 3D model from a 2D profile, and create a composite solid model in 3D.
Next, the course demonstrates how to add details to your model, introducing features such as filleting and chamfering, along with essential editing tools.
As the course continues, Cohen includes chapters covering viewing 3D models, plotting in 3D, creating walkthrough animations, and more.
"AutoCAD is a powerful design tool that can be used to create real-world 3D models," Cohen says.
"In this course we will cover the basic design aspects of 3D modeling in AutoCAD, equipping AutoCAD users with the knowledge and skills to produce their own 3D projects in AutoCAD."
Free demo videos and a full list of course contents can be found on the Learning AutoCAD 3D 2015 training page of the Infinite Skills website: http://www.infiniteskills.com/training/learning-autodesk-autocad-3d-2015.html.
