The problem with learning autoCAD in a computer school is that you only learn how to use the autoCAD software package
as a drafting tool. There is far more to autoCAD than that.
AutoCAD is not just a drafting software, it is a standard engineering design, production modelling, Programming and manufacturing (Computer Aided Manufacturing) Software.
Our AutoCAD training is aimed to develop students ability to apply autoCAD to their various engineering field: Achitechtural & Building, Civil & Structural, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical & Production Engineering, Chemical & Petroleum Engineering.
We are an engineering design company and we use autoCAD extensively for most of our applications. Also, besides the fact that we teach autoCAD tailored for Engineering students , we have first hand experience on its applications and usage, which means you'll learn more industry based applications.
At the end of this course, you'll be able to
- Start and set-up basic and simple drawings.
- Draw in 2D & 3D
- Do standard engineering drawings.
- Do standard assembly drawings.
- Do standard schematic drawings
- program Autocad.
- communicate and interpret engineering drawings.
- Produce drawings to a recognised engineering standard (BS8888).
STAGE 1(AutoCAD 2D)
- INTRODUCTION: Why AutoCAD?, The command window , Drawing tools/objects , the workspaces, saving your files, the DWG file format.
- AUTOCAD & AUTOCAD LT BASICS: Starting to Draw , Opening a Drawing , Using Commands , Specifying Coordinates , Setting up a Drawing .
- DRAWING IN TWO DIMENSIONS: Drawing Simple Line, Curves and Points, Viewing your drawing, Editing your Drawings with Basic tools, Layers, Colours, Linetypes , Lineweights, Creating Text, Drawing Dimensions, Creating Dimension Styles , Drawing Complex Objects, Plotting and Printing your Drawing.
- ENGINEERING DRAWING STANDARDS (BS8888).
- DRAWING EXERCISES: General 2D exercises to standards.
STAGE 2 (AutoCAD 3D)
- SPECIFYING 3D CO-ORDINATES: Working in 3D environment, Using 3D Co-ordinates , 3D polylines, Creating Helixes, Using Elevation and Thickness, working with the User Co-ordinate system.
- VIEWING 3D DRAWINGS: Working with standard Viewpoints, Using DDVPOINT, displaying parallel and perspective projections, Using 3D orbit,
Using DVIEW, Laying Out 3D drawings.
- CREATING 3D SURFACES : Converting objects to surfaces , Drawing with 3DFACE, Drawing standard 3D shapes , Drawing resolved surfaces , Drawing extruded surfaces , Drawing surfaces between 2D Objects , Drawing Edge Surfaces , working with multi-type of 3D Objects.
- CREATING SOLIDS & EDITING IN 3D: Drawing basic shapes , creating extruded solids, Using the EXTRUDE command , sectioning and slicing solids , using editing commands in 3D , trimming , filleting , chemfering, exploding, using the SOLIDEDIT command.
- DRAWING EXERCISES: General drawing exercises on areas of your expertise would be done.For example if you are studying mechanical engineering , assembly drawings would be done , while house plans would be done for achitectural students.
- AUTOCAD PROGRAMMING: understanding AutoLISP and Visual LISP basics , using the AutoLISP routine in AutoCAD , working with numbers and text , using the visual LISP interface.
