course level image

AutoCAD Essentials is a multi-part series that takes a more modular approach to this massive program, used for everything from 2D and 3D CAD design, drafting, and modeling to architectural drawing and engineering projects. In this installment, author Jeff Bartels concentrates on the particulars of creating basic geometry in AutoCAD, including assigning imperial or metric units of measurement, using object snaps to control accuracy, and drawing and transforming basic lines and shapes. The last chapter in the course tests your newfound skills in a short project.

Topics include:

  • Constructing lines
  • Defining a unit of measure
  • Locking to geometry with object snaps
  • Drawing rectangles, circles, and polygons
  • Applying hatch patterns
  • Moving, copying, and rotating objects
  • Erasing elements
  • Undoing and redoing actions
