AutoCAD Essentials Training Courses

AutoCAD Essentials Logo

AutoCAD is the industry-standard computer-aided drafting software programme used by drafters, engineers, surveyors, and architects for creating blueprints for buildings, bridges, and even computer chips.

The software is used for designing and drafting both 2D and 3D mesh and solid surfaces.

Since it was originally released back in 1982, AutoCAD has become the most widely used CAD programme across the globe due to its ability to allow users to visually design and explore conceptual design ideas, modify designs using 3D free-form design tools, generate intelligent model documentation, transform designs into 3D renderings, and turn them into cinematic quality animated presentations.

The majority of AutoCAD Essentials training courses are accredited by Autodesk, the developers of AutoCAD.
