attended Intro to AutoCAD Workshop

Very helpful class to ensure you learn how to use AutoCAD the right way with best practices! This is more focused on best practice rather than refining / improving your drawing skills; however, I found it very valuable to take following the Intro to AutoCAD class.

attended Intermediate AutoCAD

The Beginner AutoCAD course was relaxed, but quick and engaging. The focus on best practices and exploration of the program sets a really helpful foundation for further progress into the program, regardless of actual application. I would happily look to continue with the Intermediate and Advanced courses.

Overview of AutoCAD

AutoCAD is a computer drafting program. Drafting, also referred to as technical drawing, the act of drawing diagrams that show how something functions or how it is going to be built. AutoCAD is not an art or graphic design program. Drawings in AutoCAD are generally not made for aesthetic purposes, but for builders to reference the drawings to construct the objects drawn. AutoCAD is focused on accuracy and precision and is used for blueprints and mechanical drawings, floor plans, electrical diagrams, site plans, elevations and a wide range of drawings of that nature.

AutoCAD is a vector based program, meaning that all graphics are computer-generated points (vector) placed on an XY grid, as opposed to raster graphics, which are pixel based and resolution dependent. In a vector-based program like AutoCAD, graphics are always sharp no matter the size and resolution is not an issue.

When drawing in AutoCAD, the focus is on accuracy, clarity, and speed. Our classes are geared towards achieving all three.
