About this course.
This AutoCAD 3D course is for users who want to learn all about 3D tools and commands of AutoCAD right from scratch.
This course starts with the basics of creating 3D shapes without using sketches and later we will learn to make simple shapes using sketches.
Then we will start with the fundamental 3D tools like extrude, presspull, revolve, sweep and loft.
Later we will discuss 3D modification tools like filler, chamfer, shell, thicken, move face, 3D pattern and more.
We will spend some time exploring the 3D coordinate system as it makes the foundation of making drawings in 3D.
We will also explore the surface modelling and mesh modelling tools and we will also make 3D parts using surfacing and mesh modelling tools of AutoCAD 3D.
Finally, we will explore the scene, texture, material and rendering tools of AutoCAD and we will learn to create 3D photorealistic results in AutoCAD 3D using its rendering engine.
By the end of this course, you will have essential skills to create, edit, render and publish your own 3D drawings with photorealistic quality.
You will also learn to make 2D manufacturing-ready drawings like the one shown below using the 3D tools of AutoCAD.
Who should take this course.
This course is made for an intermediate level AutoCAD user who has a basic knowledge of 2D Draw and Modify commands.
This course is for you if you are a mechanical engineer, architect, interior designer or just a hobbyist who wants to learn AutoCAD 3D right from scratch.
AutoCAD 2016 or a later version on Windows operating system is recommended for the course.
