AutoCAD Fundamentals

AutoCAD Fundamentals covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools.


This course covers the core topics for working with AutoCAD in a 2D environment.  Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the fundamental 2D drafting tools and concepts. More advanced tools are also introduced throughout the training guide provided.
