In this training course for AutoCAD 3D with trainer Seth Cohen, you will discover how to leverage the powerful 3D tools that are available in this computer aided design software from Autodesk. This tutorial is designed for the 3D beginner, but it is recommended that you are familiar with the basics AutoCAD before attempting this course.
You will start with an introduction to 3D modeling and the workspaces available to you. You will learn how to navigate your models, and discover where the tools you will use are located within AutoCAD. Once you are comfortable with these basics, Seth jumps right into creating 3D models, covering topics such as wireframes, surface modeling, primitive solid models, composite solids, and creating models from 2D profiles. You will learn how to add detail with filleting and chamfering, how to edit solid models, methods of moving the model around, how to plot your models, the use of lighting, as well as rendering and presenting your 3D model.
By the completion of this computer based training course on AutoCAD 3D, you will be fully comfortable with creating, editing, rendering and presenting fully featured 3D model projects. Working files are included to allow you to use the same source materials that the author uses throughout each lesson so you can practice what he is teaching, as he is teaching it!
