Description

Description

High-quality facility drawings in AutoCAD software give organizations the information they need to assign, redesign, and reallocate space, whether for manufacturing or offices. When it comes to computer-aided facilities management (CAFM), there's one tool: AutoCAD. This class will show you the skills you need to use AutoCAD to calculate available area, understand which percentage is usable space, and export drawings and data for analysis and presentation. Concentrating on the basics, this class will guide you through a simple CAFM project, letting you learn at your own pace and develop your skills as you go. Shaun Bryant will show you how to set up drawings, define and measure areas, set up facilities area tables, and annotate drawings. By the end of the class, you'll be able to export the information to applications such as Microsoft Excel so that you can analyze the data in a tabular format.
