AutoCAD Fundamentals - PLUS

This course covers the core topics for working with AutoCAD®. The teaching strategy is to start with the core tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. The intent is to show the fundamental usage of 2D drafting tools and application of the essential functionality of AutoCAD 2D.


On completion of this course students will have been given the opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding of commands and concepts that develop the skills necessary to demonstrate competency in:
• Navigating the AutoCAD® workspace and user interface
• Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools
• Organizing drawing objects on layers
• Inserting reusable symbols (blocks)
• Preparing a layout to be plotted
• Adding text, hatching, and dimensions
• Completing documentation in accordance with AS1100
