Course description

AutoCAD 3D Skills -  In-House Training - teach your employees to design in 3D

Cadassist's trainers are experienced in enlightening your users with the drawing capabilities of AutoCAD 3D - allowing them to maximise their use of program as a highly practical modelling solution for a variety of applications and disciplines.

This AutoCAD 3D Skills course is delivered in-house on your premises and will introduce users who are familiar AutoCAD's 2D commands to the tools available for modelling in three dimensions. These include 3D coordinate systems, as well as features designed to edit 3D surfaces, build solid models and check models' integrity.

The training is designed to be very hands-on and will help participants learn how to create, modify and display 3D models in a competent, professional way.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This AutoCAD 3D Skills - In-House Training can be tailored to suit your participants, but is typically suitable for users who are proficient in AutoCAD who wish to use the program for 3D design work.

Pre-requisites
Delegates must have a working knowledge of AutoCAD.

Training Course Content

Course content typically includes:

Basic 3D Concepts
  • Types of 3D models
  • Basic viewing in 3D, rotating the view
  • Change the display of your model by changing the visual style (i.e., wireframe, realistic, conceptual)
  • Setting the viewport display
Creating Solid Primitives
  • Extrude, revolve, sweep and loft a 2D shape to create a 3D model
  • How to decide on the best method for creating your model

  • Split a model into two separate models
Converting Objects
  • Convert 2D geometry to 3D surfaces and solids
  • Thicken a surface to create a model
3D Editing Skills
  • Use your model’s history to make editing easier
  • Quickly modify 3D solids in diverse ways using 3D grips
  • Understand the options and workflow for extruding a model face
  • 2D commands that are very different in 3D: move, offset, delete, rotate, align, mirror, array
  • How to shell a solid model
Getting 2D Information from your Model
  • Create and manipulate section planes to view the information you want in 2D or 3D
  • Generate 2D cross sections based on the planes you define
Checking Your Model
  • Use Shape Manager to validate your model
  • View the mass property data of your model
  • Save time doing calculations by using your model information
