AutoCAD 2014 Advanced introduces advanced techniques and teaches you to be proficient in your use of AutoCAD. This is done by teaching you how to recognize the best tool for the task, the best way to use that tool, and how to create new tools to accomplish tasks more efficiently.
Learn to design and shape the world around you using the powerful, flexible features found in AutoCAD® design and documentation software, one of the world's leading 2D and 3D CAD tools. In this course, you will learn to navigate the AutoCAD user interfaces and use the fundamental features of AutoCAD. You will learn to use the precision drafting tools in AutoCAD to develop accurate technical drawings and you'll discover ways to present drawings in a detailed and visually impressive way.
Discover the powerful tools and techniques for drawing, dimensioning, and printing 2D drawings in this course that enables you to reuse content and extract information from your drawings. With an understanding of the tools and concepts you'll learn in class, you can begin to streamline the design process and become more productive with AutoCAD.
AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2014 Beyond the Basics continues with more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the AutoCAD software beyond what was learned in AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2014 Essentials.
The objective of AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2014 Essentials is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. Even at this fundamental level, the AutoCAD software is one of the most sophisticated computer applications that you are likely to encounter. Therefore learning to use it can be challenging.
In this course on Revit Architecture, you will learn to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. You will spend most of the course learning to use design development tools, including building the 3D model with walls, windows, doors, floors, roofs, and stairs, and creating reflected ceiling plans and furniture plans. You will also learn about the concepts of building information modeling (BIM) and the tools for parametric building design and documentation.
By leveraging the experience users gain in working with other 3D modeling software packages, this hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum is developed so that new users in the Autodesk Inventor software can benefit from a shorter introductory level training guide. The new user is taught how to find and use the modeling tools associated with familiar modeling strategies that are used in other 3D CAD software. Users of this training guide acquire the knowledge needed to complete the process of creating models from conceptual sketching, through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production.
The Autodesk Inventor 2014 Advanced Assembly Modeling training guide builds on the skills acquired in the Autodesk Inventor 2014 Introduction to Solid Modeling and Autodesk Inventor 2014 Advanced Part Modeling training guides to take students to a higher level of productivity when creating and working with assemblies in the Autodesk® Inventor® software.
Autodesk Inventor 2014 Advanced Part Modeling is the second in a series of training guides on the Autodesk Inventor software that is published by ASCENT. The goal of this guide is to build on the skills acquired in the Autodesk Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling training guide by taking students to a higher level of productivity when designing part models in Inventor.
The Inventor 2014 Introduction to Solid Modeling training guide instructs students in the best usage approaches for parametric design philosophy through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum. Students acquire the knowledge needed to complete the process of designing models from conceptual sketching, through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production.
Autodesk® Revit® is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) tool, which can be used by more than one person working on a new project. This is an important feature in collaboration within a project, between projects, and with other users, firms, and disciplines.
As architects and designers start a project, they frequently think about the overall massing of a building or the area of the footprint. The Autodesk Revit Architecture software, using its powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) engine, includes tools for creating mass elements that can be modified into many shapes. You can then apply walls, roofs, and floors to them to continue designing. You can also access space planning tools for setting up areas for rooms and applying colors to them to show the connections. For presentations, you can create and render perspective views.
The Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software 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. This training guide is designed to teach you the Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it in the design process. You begin by learning about the user interface and the Autodesk Revit commands for design development followed by those available for construction documentation.
The main purpose of the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software is to design buildings: walls, doors, floors, roofs, and stairs. However, architects also frequently need to add site and structural information. The Autodesk Revit Architecture 2014 Site and Structural Design training guide covers the elements and tools that are used to create topographic surfaces for site work and add structural elements.
