AutoCAD: Construction Drawings

AutoCAD is a world leader in computer-aided design (CAD), and users around the world employ this powerful software to communicate their design intent in many different disciplines. In this course, Autodesk Certified Instructor Shaun Bryant takes you through how to work with AutoCAD to create construction drawings that accurately communicate your design intent. Shaun explains how to use the tools and features within AutoCAD to develop drawings that clearly express the sizes of the objects you want to build, in both metric drawing sizes and imperial drawing sizes. He covers how to develop a title block, set up attributes, set up layers to industry standards, and work with coordinate systems. Shaun also shows you how to develop plans and elevations, create sections and detail views, and set up viewports. He goes over how to create standard layouts, then finishes up with detailed instructions on printing and publishing.
