AutoCAD 3D


Using hands-on exercises representing real-world, industry-specific design scenarios, students explore the fundamental concepts and workflows for creating 3D models using AutoCAD. Students learn how to create and modify both solid and surface models. This course also teaches students how to present their designs while they are still being created, using visualization tools such as visual styles, model walk and fly through, materials, and lighting. Students also learn how to output 3D models from AutoCAD to either paper or a distributive electronic version.
