Description

Description

AutoCAD 2016 software introduces an entirely new rendering engine. Do you want to create professional-looking renderings? Learn how to convert your 3D AutoCAD software models into finished, photorealistic renderings using tools already built into AutoCAD software. In this class you will learn how to use AutoCAD software’s lighting, material, and rendering tools to place and control lights, add and adjust materials and textures, and control the surrounding model environment to produce eye-catching images. We will also see how to take real-world objects and quickly create custom materials and produce reusable models of light fixtures that behave like real-world lights. You will also learn how to capitalize on Autodesk 360 software’s cloud-based rendering service to create beautiful renderings quickly and easily, and even produce rendered animations entirely inside AutoCAD software.

Target Audience
