Software training firm InfiniteSkills last week introduced its "Advanced AutoCAD 2013 Tutorial," a training course geared to help students and professionals who use AutoCAD in their daily work routine maximize the capabilities of AutoCAD's powerful design tools.
Taught by AutoCAD expert Brian Benton, the course also includes tips tricks gathered from Benton's decades of experience to help users draw quickly and efficiently in this complex and challenging program.
InfiniteSkills' Advanced AutoCAD 2013 Training - DVD provides a crash-course in the latest AutoCAD version. With several sections dedicated to advanced tools and techniques, the course is designed to build from the basic skill set developed in the introductory course, and then bring those new skills together in a final AutoCAD design project.
Benton has over 18 years of experience in various AutoCAD design and engineering applications, including work as an engineering technician, CAD service provider, technical writer, and AutoCAD instructor. He has also served in various leadership roles for the AutoDesk newsletter HotNews in addition to working on AutoDesk's development team.
Benton's experience means students get the insights and techniques developed over a career of working with AutoCAD in just a few short hours with the Advanced AutoCAD 2013 Training Video from InfiniteSkills.
"We dig deeper into AutoCAD here," Benton says, "and we learn more of what it can do."
Topics covered include drawing navigation, where students learn to create, use, and save, named views; and advanced operations, including advanced use of the application menu, keyboard shortcuts, and working with polylines and spline editing. A chapter on advanced tools follows, covering alignment and 3D alignment, lengthening and joining lines and objects, and advanced selection techniques.
Many other critical concepts are covered including file management tools, drawing annotation features, and advanced use of sheets. An extended chapter covers the details of 3D design where users explore AutoCAD's capabilities for 3D modeling, including running boolean operations, manipulating 3D surfaces, and navigating in 3D, just to name a few.
"In addition to the key tools and concepts," says Benton, "I teach tricks to help students interact more efficiently with AutoCAD."
