Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn how to use the basic 3D solid modeling commands
  • Learn how to apply practical 3D solid modeling techniques
  • Learn how to avoid common pitfalls in 3D solid modeling
  • Learn how to create 3D solid models effectively, using the minimum set of tools and essential information

Description

Description

You will learn the basics of 3D solid modeling with AutoCAD software using only about 10 new commands. Included are a lot of practical techniques, tips, and caveats with real-life models. My goal is to give you a solid introduction, demonstrations, and a roadmap to 3D solid modeling that will make you functional in an hour with as few commands as possible—and to avoid overwhelming you with information.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Architects, engineers, and designers who want a quick start into practical 3D solid modeling with AutoCAD.
