CAD and AutoCAD courses

CAD refers to Computer Aided Design, or sometimes Computer Assisted Drawing, which is digital-based design and engineering drawings. CAD is used in construction and architecture and some other forms of design. In addition, there is also CAE Computer-Aided-Engineering, and CAM, Computer Aided Manufacturing. CAD technology has progressed a lot since it first appeared between the period of 1980 - 90. Today, CAD has developed so that it is now possible to quickly produce 3D visualizations and integrations, for example, architects and engineers traditional activities.

AutoCAD is used by professionals in a range of industries from mechanical and civil engineering, architecture, and facilities planning and management. AutoCAD is currently used more than any other CAD system to design engineering drawings, and there are many job opportunities in and around London and all over the world. IT professionals use CAD software to manually draft technical and engineering drawings on computers. With CAD software IT professionals convey symbolic information such as materials, processes, dimensions, and tolerances, according to application-specific conventions.

Professionals that are trained in CAD can create models and structures for the automotive, shipbuilding, aerospace, architectural design, and prosthetics industries, and many more. CAD training courses covers areas such as how to design curves and figures in two-dimensional (2D) space; as well as curves, surfaces, or solids in three-dimensional (3D) objects. Training courses, often in AutoCAD, are popular for teaching delegates how to produce computer animation for special effects in movies, advertising and technical manuals.

AutoCAD courses

AutoCAD is a CAD software used to produce drawings and design in 2D and 3D and is developed and sold by Autodesk. Professionals use AutoCAD features in the design, modification of diameters, change of perspectives and angles, exploded views, etc. Using AutoCAD you can customize and design the world around you with powerful and flexible features. AutoCAD is one of the world's most widely used CAD tools for drafting and document management in 2D and 3D. Used properly, it can streamline document management, facilitate the exchange of ideas with others, which makes it possible to explore ideas more intuitively in 3D. AutoCAD is flexible and has many additional applications, allowing you to easily customize the program to your needs.

Although originally designed for engineers AutoCAD is currently used by architects and other designers. Its file format DWG and DXF ASCII counterpart has been standardised for technical drawings.

AutoCAD and CAD courses show users that it's easier than you think to draw on the computer. Courses help users learn the basics of AutoCAD at beginner level, and at more advanced levels it shows delegates how they can increase their productivity in construction and engineering  by creating drawings in AutoCAD which helps you coordinate the design data throughout the project. In an introductory course, you will initially learn how to create drawings from scratch and how to handle object editing and printing. Some computer skills and windows management knowledge are the prerequisites when enrolling on a course.

CAD courses are available for those starting out in the industry as well as for the professional looking to stay abreast of the latest developments.
