This Two-Day AutoCAD Intermediate course builds upon skills learnt on our AutoCAD Essentials course.
Our AutoCAD Essentials course is accredited by Autodesk. AutoCAD Essentials courses are hosted by Autodesk Certified Trainers (ACTs) with vast experience of using AutoCAD in Industry.
AutoCAD training is arranged on-request, ie one-to-one training or a ‘closed course’ for your group. This means that the training can be:
Provided when it suits you.
Adapted to reflect the CAD work you’re going to be doing, focusing on topics that are most important to you, and reducing emphasis on those that are less so.
Advanced drafting techniques – improve drafting speed
A short introduction to 3D – easy to use 3D basics
Inserting text fields – such as today’s date
Tables and table styles – links to external data
Block definitions – Define your own objects for drag & drop into your drawing
Design centre – commonly used to insert blocks from other drawings + many other uses
Tool palettes – a selection of blocks at your fingertips
Writing macros for customised Icons – speed up common tasks
Customising the User interface – streamline your work
Dynamic blocks – more powerful blocks which respond to user input
Block attributes – blocks can carry user defined information
Data extraction – Commonly used to extract data from attributes into a spread sheet
Referenced drawings (Xrefs) – Several can work on the same project independently or one part can be edited so that all drawings containing that part will be updated when opened.
Draw order – Send objects to back or front when viewing or printing
Attaching raster images – See digital phots or images on your prints
Dimensions styles – Professionalise your drawing output
Wipeouts – Blank out portions of your drawing
Revision clouds – Highlight areas on your drawing
Annotation scale – Add scales to see your data the same size at different scaled output. Also applies to hatching, text and objects
Multi-leader styles – Easily add arrows with text to detail your drawing
Layer groups and filters – Just see the layers you need
Layouts – Set up layers to suit your output devices. Also used to display and print different disciplines in each tab with all data stored in drawing model space.
Viewports – Different viewport styles and how to maximise/minimise viewports
CTB styles – Commonly used to allocate pen sizes to drawing colours. Solve the problem of objects plotted in yellow, without having to edit the drawing.
