AutoCAD 3D course overview
AutoCAD is a software application for computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting. The software supports both 2D and 3D formats.
In this course, we will cover 3D aspects of AutoCAD for example creating 3D drawings, rendering 3D, editing 3D solids and hatch patterns.
Few practical AutoCAD 3D based projects at the end of the course will ensure that you can apply AutoCAD on your 3D projects.
This short AutoCAD 3D course is hands-on, instructor-led and classroom based. This training can be taken as a part-time evening course or even on the weekends. A list of all upcoming public AutoCAD 3D training course is given on training dragon website. Each course is restricted to a maximum of ten delegates to ensure an excellent training experience.
