You will start learning the basics of AutoCAD such as user interface, commands, system variables, AutoCAD drawings, drawing theory, initial settings, drawing objects, constructing and editing 2D geometry, correcting errors, object verification, measurement, controlling graphic display, grids, text, layers, and object symbology.

You will advance quickly to producing more sophisticated 2D drawings. You will learn how to complete grips, crosshatching advanced measurement, utility commands, blocks, special entities, advanced settings, viewports, advanced text, dimensioning, reference files, polylines, printing and plotting.

You will finish this intensive series by learning to create 3D models and multiview drawings. You will be able to complete isometric drawing, drawing with extrusions, XYZ point filters, world and user coordinate systems, 3D wireframes, viewing 3D models, model and paper space, creating and scaling views, setting view layer visibility, constructing multiview drawings, surfacing with vertex defined meshes and polygon meshes.
