Learn AutoCAD At Your Own Pace
(PRWEB) May 06, 2013
Technology training firm InfiniteSkills Inc. last week released Learning AutoCAD 2014 LT Tutorial, an introductory course designed to introduce basic drawing and editing skills with the industry standard computer assisted design program.
With AutoCAD 2014 LT, Autodesk offers a cost-effective way for individual users to take advantage of AutoCAD's powerful design tools. While 3D elements and group licensing features are excluded, the basic features and tool sets are identical to the standard version, including several updates and new features that can be both helpful and challenging for new users.
InfiniteSkills' Learning AutoCAD 2014 LT Training - DVD provides a crash-course in the latest AutoCAD version, while carefully helping new users build a basic skill set for drawing and modeling in AutoCAD. Complete with a section dedicated to new features like Design Feed, which provides greater capabilities for collaboration, and enhanced cloud integration, the course is designed to gradually increase students' efficiency in drawing and editing, and then put their skills to work in a comprehensive AutoCAD design project.
Course author Brian Benton is an engineering technician, CAD Service Provider, technical writer and AutoCAD instructor. He has 19 years' experience using AutoCAD in various design fields, and has served in various leadership roles for the AutoDesk, including editing its newsletter HotNews, and working in program development .
"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 not only to teach what each command does, but to make sure to demonstrate how to actually use commands in real life situations."
After getting up to speed on drawing and editing basics, students learn how to draw in AutoCAD, picking up fundamentals and learning time-saving techniques employed by veteran users.
The InfiniteSkills' Learning AutoCAD 2014 LT 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, like the seats in the movie theater.
Additional features include learning to annotate drawings, applying text fields, printing features, and much more.
