AutoCAD 2D Drafting and Annotation The Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of AutoCAD features and capabilities. This course covers Starting with Sketching, Layers, Dimension Styles, Dynamic Blocks and A360. Autodesk AutoCAD is a powerful CAD software helping professionals create 2D drawings faster and with more precision. Its simplified 2D drafting allows teams to work more efficiently by sharing drawings across connected desktop, cloud, and mobile solutions.

This course is a self-guided online course. Students have 60 days to complete the curriculum, but may work at their own pace throughout the course. Lessons are presented in written format, video format and have a hands-on assignment at the end of each learning module.

The latest Civil 3D Fundamentals course is designed for Civil Engineers and Surveyors who want to take advantage of AutoCAD Civil 3D’s interactive, dynamic design functionality. AutoCAD Civil 3D permits the rapid development of alternatives through its model-based design tools. You will learn techniques enabling you to organize project data, work with points, create and analyze surfaces, model road corridors, create parcel layouts, perform grading and volume calculation tasks, and lay out pipe networks.

Duration: 32 hours
Prerequisites: Prior experience with AutoCAD or AutoCAD-based products (such as Autodesk Land Desktop) is a prerequisite for this course.

Revit Architecture is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way Architects think. From Preliminary Design through Design Development and into Construction Documents, the program streamlines the design process with a central 3D model. Changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets.

Since building projects themselves tend to be extremely complex, Revit Architecture necessarily a complex program. The objective of the latest Revit Architecture Fundamentals course is to enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. You begin by learning about the user interface and the Revit commands for design development followed by those available for construction documentation.

Duration: 32 hours
Prerequisites: An understanding of architectural terminology is an asset.

Autodesk Inventor The Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of Inventor, its features, and capabilities; from the basics through to the most advanced and complex topics. This course covers Sketching, Adding Part Features, Creating the Drawing, Presentations, and Weldments. Autodesk Inventor is a 3D parametric modeling system, offering professional-grade 3D mechanical design, documentation, and product simulation tools. With Inventor, you can create 3D digital prototypes and then use them to create drawings, visualizations, and simulations.
