Diploma in AutoCAD 2D,3D Essentials Course Outline for Career Oriented



Course Contents list of Duration 3 Months & 6 Months

The objective of AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2013 Essentials is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. Even at this fundamental level, the AutoCAD software is one of the most sophisticated computer applications that you are likely to encounter. Therefore learning to use it can be challenging.

AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2013 Essentials covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are also introduced throughout the training guide. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts, such as understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface, using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools, organizing drawing objects on layers, inserting reusable symbols (blocks), preparing a layout to be plotted and adding text, hatching and dimensions.

No previous CAD experience required but it is recommended that you have working knowledge of Microsoft Windows 7. Drafting experience is a plus.
