Capitalize on your knowledge of 2D to visualize your ideas in 3D entirely using AutoCAD.

While AutoCAD dominates drafting CAD market, there is a great number of strong players that are competing at 3D software market. What AutoCAD makes standout is the fact that when you master creation of 2D drawings you don’t need to invest too much time to make next step and learn how to visualize your ideas. AutoCAD offers wide variety of 3D tools needed for basic and advanced modeling. When you project gets it 3D shape AutoCAD provides a library of realistic materials, predefined light templates and rendering settings to enrich visualization of your ideas.
Companies that gather architects, civil and mechanical engineers, project managers, city planners, and other professionals need all in one CAD software solution, and AutoCAD is exactly that kind of software.
Due to a huge number of tools and options, it’s not always straightforward to find the best method to take the advantage of all the possibilities offered by AutoCAD. Therefore, most of the AutoCAD users do not utilize the full potential of this program.
This course will help you to gain all the important skills to be able to visualize your ideas. Additionally, you’ll learn some tricks that will save you lots of time in your efforts to address some typical problems met by AutoCAD users worldwide.
This course is in compliance with Autodesk Official Training Courseware. Upon completion of AutoCAD 2D course, if you want to become Autodesk Certified Professional, this course might be your second and also very important step in reaching this goal.
